Lillian Pace Obituary

Lillian M. Pace, 104, of Frederick, Maryland walked into the loving arms of Jesus on September 29, 2023, surrounded by her family.

Born June 23, 1919, she was the daughter of the late John Seabolt and Nancy (Scott) Seabolt of Rose Hill, VA.  Lillian was a woman of strong Christian faith instilled in her by her parents.

Lillian was preceded in death by her loving husband of 53 years at his death, Carl Pace; six brothers, Thurman Seabolt, Willis Seabolt, Robert Seabolt, Roy Seabolt, Green Seabolt, and Lonnie Seabolt; two sisters: Hazel (Seabolt) Frazier, and Mae (Seabolt) Ramsey; her daughter, Norma Ward; and her son, Jack Pace.

Lillian is survived by her son, James Pace (Marilyn), two daughters: Diane Kitts, and Anita Wharton; her nine grandchildren: Deborah Jump (Mike), Julie Trail (Jeff), John Ward (Katie), Jeff Pace (Delma), Thomas Pace, Kelly Pace, Christie Williams (Mike), Cherie Wharton, and Melanie Johnson; 14 great-grandchildren; 13 great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Lillian’s life spanned 12 decades in which she experienced many different jobs, including working at a factory that manufactured parts for NASA’s first space flight.  Her most rewarding work came from caring for children.  From her retirement in her 50s she took on the role as a babysitter for her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and neighborhood friend’s children. 

She had numerous talents, from gardening, canning foods, countless arts and crafts, baking, cooking, and was a phenomenal homemaker.  She was an avid fan of Family Feud and Wheel of Fortune.  She enjoyed being a member of the Red Hat Society and Lunch Bunch with her daughter Norma and brought joy to others by participating in shows at local nursing homes. 

Services will be held at 10 am on Friday, October 6, 2023 at Barber Funeral Home.  Burial will be at Glen Haven Memorial Park in Glen Burnie, MD at 12 Noon on October 6, 2023.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Cancer Society (
