Barbara Lou Seader


Barbara Lou Seader, 74, of Brighton, went home to be with the Lord June 8, 2010.

    She was born in Kimball, Neb., June 8, 1936, to Albert and Iva Schliske. Barbara graduated from Brighton High School in 1954, where she enjoyed watching her brother, Gano, play in all types of sports while cheerleading from the sidelines. Just out of school, she met and fell in love with Alvin Seader. They eloped to Raton, N.M., on Sept. 5, 1954. After returning to Colorado, they pursued their dream of farming and did so for countless years.

    Barbara worked not only on the farm but for Cudahy Meats for several years, and then for American Stratigraphic Co. She retired after many years to enjoy her husband, family and many friends, along with growing and grooming the many flower gardens and grass so thick and green you would think it was carpet. Later, in her retirement years, Barb volunteered at Platte Valley Medical Center of Brighton and later was a very active member of The Worship Center. She recruited many to attend services. One of the most important loves of her life was serving the Lord. But as important as that was, leading others to the great joys of that relationship with God was vastly more important. When asked what one of her greatest times in her life, Barb said, “The gift of my two girls.”

    Let’s not forget Barb’s Broncos. In fact, she had a room full of all the collectibles she had gathered over the years. Missing a game was not an option. Whatever it took, she was in front of the television cheering them on, win, lose or draw. The biggest smiles came from the whole family getting together as often as possible for great food followed by games and sore stomachs from all the laughter.

    Barbara is survived by her daughters, Tammy (Hub) Albrandt, and Stephanie (Mark) Lucero; grandchildren, Nicholus (Michelle) Albrandt, and Anthony Albrandt, Alexie (Tim) Catalano, Stacie Lucero, and Mark Lucero, Jr.; and great grandchildren; Kiana, and Tayen Albrandt.

    She was preceded in death by her husband, Alvin, in 2001, brother, Gano Schliske, in 1970, and sister, Beverly Seader, in 2000.

    Service was held June 14, at Chapel Hill Church of the Nazarene in Brighton. Internment followed at Elmwood Cemetery in Brighton. Tabor-Rice Funeral Home handled the arrangements.
