Demaree Seagle



Mrs. Demaree Ellis Seagle, age 97, of Marion passed from her earthly life to Heaven on Wednesday, March 10, 2021. She was born on March 23, 1923 to Joe and Timmie Ola Ellis. She was preceeded in death by a granddaughter Cindey Dellinger and a grandson-in-law Kelly Pittman.


Demaree attended Blantons Business College after high school and worked as Executive Secretary at Drexel Furniture Company for 48 years until her retirement. She loved working there and even took shorthand for a murder trial in McDowell County several years ago. Demaree was the wife of the late H. Eugene Seagle. She was a great role model and inspiration to family. She was an avid reader, she loved to laugh and was proud of her grandchildren and great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Demaree was a charter member of the Cross Memorial Baptist Church. She enjoyed visiting with her friends at the Senior Center. She truly missed getting to see her church family and her friends at the Center during the pandemic and was looking forward to fellowshipping with them all again. Demaree’s sharp mind, her sense of humor and her never wavering love for her family and friends will be greatly missed; but she left a legacy and spirit that will live on with all who knew her. She is rejoicing in Heaven now with her loved ones there and we know we will be blessed to see her again.


Demaree Seagle had one son Harold Eugene Seagle, Jr. (Marie) and a daughter Barbara S. Wilson (Ronnie); four grandchildren, Russell Seagle, Joe Seagle, Jamie Pittman and Paul Dellinger; seven great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren.


A funeral service will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 11:00 am at Cross Memorial Baptist Church with Reverend Ryan Bennett officiating. The family will be receiving friends from 10:00 – 11:00 am one hour prior to the service at the church.


Memorial donations may be made to the Cross Memorial Baptist Church at 15 Cross Memorial Baptist Church Loop, Marion NC 28752.



The family would like to thank the McDowell EMS, the McDowell Hospital ER staff and the pulmonary care unit staff Mission Hospital for the kindness and excellent care they gave our Mother in her last days.

Aunt Demaree was my moms last living sibling. We talked every once in awhile. We talked last month for almost a half hour about memories we had of each other when I was young. I loved her so much. She was always full of life and upbeat. She always lifted my spirits. She loved church and her family.
She will truly be missed and not forgotten.
