November 27, 1929 – October 2, 2019
On October 2nd, Helen Seybold took her last breath. Helen’s life was an outpouring of unconditional love, blessing all alike. Helen embraced each person with kindness, grace, and gratitude. Born in London, England in 1929, Helen lived through the traumas of World War II. After going to Art College to learn design, Helen put her talents to work for Simplicity Patterns before discovering antique collecting and dealing. Helen then applied her gift for design in property management. Helen devotedly raised her only daughter, Karen Swift, mostly as a single parent after her first marriage brought her to the United States. Eventually, Helen found the love of her life, Louis Seybold, in Omaha. Growing a deep love together for more than forty years, Helen and Louis celebrated life with world travel, visiting over twenty countries. Their union gifted Helen with several adult children—Jeffrey Seybold, Carolyn Roth, Elaine Rodriguez, and Pamela Clark—and many grandchildren. Together, Helen and Louis nurtured their family, helping them embrace life’s ups and downs. Louis, her family, and friends will deeply miss Helen; the love she shared will live on in the hearts of all whose lives she touched.

Our heartfelt condolences to all the family. Our memories of our Auntie Helen will remain close to our hearts always. Although many miles away in England, we will always remember her beautiful smile and the fun she brought with her. RIP xxx
Words cannot even begin to express our sadness at the loss of dearest Auntie Helen. We treasure so many fond memories of the times we shared and her kindness, elegance, generosity, beauty and immense sense of fun will never be forgotten. We hope all our family across the pond may be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding them.
I send my condolences to all the family at the sad passing of Helen and my thoughts are with them all.
So hard to keep up with, Sister Helen was a Sister from a distance. She settled in America but travelled back to England as much as she could to see all the family. It was always lovely seeing her. She will be missed very much. RIP Helen x
Much love to all of you as you grieve this lovely woman.
