Mrs. Seelinger was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Don.
She is survived by her sons, Donald Peter of Seldovia and David Paul of Myrtle Beach, S.C.; daughters-in-law, Vicky, Pam, Sherry and Bobbie; adopted daughter, Linda Frison and her husband, Ron; grandchildren, David, Tina, Scott, Chris and Kimberly; three great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; brother, Clarence Kent Ladd of Kenai; and many friends.
