Anita Marie Seeman unexpectedly passed away on August 13th, 2022. She was a vibrant woman with a zest for life throughout her life until its end. She was born on May 16th, 1944 in Chicago, IL. She was the daughter of parents Anthony Julius Formosa and Sarah Cole (nee Nesci) and the beloved sister of Jackie Frame and Peter Formosa.
She is survived by her loving husband Robert Wray Seeman, son Robert Anthony Seeman (Mary Pat), and daughters Laura Krouse (John), and Diana McAuley (Mark). Her loss is felt way beyond her immediate family. Her survivors also include grandchildren Christina Alderman, John Krouse III, Michael Krouse, Emily Ridenour, Christopher Seeman, Matthew Seeman, Luke Krouse, Timothy Krouse and Daniel Seeman. And, of course, her great-granddaughters Anna Rae Alderman and Addison Claire Ridenour.
Anita was a working mother. She and Bob started or ran multiple businesses including a restaurant, a staging business, a model home furnishings consignment company and a Harford County, MD marina. She held positions as a salesperson, event planner, and a manufacturer’s representative. She was also a designer and a consultant for realtors in Anne Arundel County, MD.
An extremely creative woman, Anita was an accomplished and self-taught pianist. She was an artist and an amazing cook. Her culinary skill reached far beyond that of the dishes from her Italian heritage. She was a dreamer, a designer, and for her entire family…she was a devoted cheerleader. She loved music, everything from Sinatra to Bocelli and from Diana Krall to Ella Fitzgerald. Her love of music was something she instilled in her children and grandchildren…with varied success.
The driving force of her family, Anita married Bob in 1962 at the age of 18. A year later, they started their family. From that point forward, nothing was more important to her than that family. Anita was a teacher, encourager and even playmate for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was always in their corner pushing them to be creative, to take chances and to live life to its fullest. She was a fully engaged mother and grandmother, reaching out to each and every one of them on almost a daily basis. She worried about them, rooted for them, protected them and always kept on loving them.
Anita had an exceptional energy and sense of humor. She was always young to her family. She would say the unexpected to prove that she was still hip. She had a wonderful smile and laugh. She was a hugger, as every one of her grandchildren can attest. She was kind, generous and compassionate, not just with her family but with her many, many friends and even acquaintances.
Anita will be desperately missed by all those that she’s left behind. Our hearts are so broken by this unexpected loss. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed.
A service and reception will be held for Anita on Friday, August 19th at 2:30 pm at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church: 1643 Churchville Road, Bel Air, Maryland 21015. A private burial will follow on Saturday.
