Robin Diane Seay Elswick
April 10, 1957 – December 29, 2020
Robin Diane Seay (Diane) was born April 10, 1957 at the Louisa Memorial Medical Center in Louisa, Virginia to parents Buford and Beulah Seay. She passed away peacefully at home in her sleep after celebrating the holidays with her son and family. A life-long resident of Mineral, Virginia Diane grew up with her older brother Gary and her younger sister Tammy. She graduated from Louisa County High School in 1975. She worked most of her life as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and was especially passionate about caring for older adults. Diane became a mother when Joseph Michael Elswick (Joey) was born in December of 1980. Diane is survived by her son Joey Elswick and his fiancé Melinda Scott; her sister Tammy Dowdy and husband David; her brother Gary Seay and his wife Debbie; her nieces Bethany Dowdy and Caitlyn Dowdy; her nephew Logan and wife Kelly Jo Dowdy; and her nephew Adam Seay. She adored her great-nieces and nephews – “the littles” – Briele, Lyla Belle, Houston, Cooper, Oliver, and Mia. Diane is remembered for her devotion to her family, friends, and her neighbors. The family would like to thank Diane’s best friend, Tammy Pruitt, for the friendship and dedication she has shown her in life. An avid animal lover, Diane especially loved cats. Her son, Joey, shares her passion for cats, and is now caring for Diane’s 10-year-old Maine Coon, Willow. Remembrances may be sent to the Louisa County Resource Council in her memory. The family will celebrate Diane’s life at a graveside memorial at the family plot at Lake Anna. Due to COVID-19, these celebrations will be private.
Our deepest condolences to the entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My deepest condolences to the family. I went all the way through school with Diane. I have very fond memories of times we shared. Diane and I both laughed a lot. Her passing has hit very close to home. I’m sure Diane is now in her fancy new home surrounded by her love ones who have passed on.
