Mrs. Marydel Cabaniss Seward Flint, 104, died early Saturday April 13, 2019. A native of Petersburg, Va., Marydel married her first husband, Lewis Seward and worked as a secretary at Seward Luggage. Widowed, she later married Col. Lewis M. Flint and they spent many wonderful years in Cleveland, Ga. on their farm, raising dogs, sheep and goats. During that time, they were very active at the Mossy Creek Methodist Church. Widowed again, she returned to Petersburg and then spent the last 26 years at Rappahannock Westminster Canterbury (RW-C) in Irvington VA.
She was daughter of the late, Mary B. and W. Hugh Cabaniss. She is survived by her dear cousin, Jane Eanes Scott and family of Richmond, VA; stepson, Dr. Lewis M. Flint, Jr of Chicago IL, and 4 grandchildren – Katie Flint Smith (Matt) of Atlanta GA, Sara Flint of Land O’ Lakes, FL, Eric Flint of Portland OR, and Matthew Flint of Chicago IL; former daughter in law Elizabeth F. Inman of Dade City, FL; and many Eanes cousins in Alabama.
A woman of many talents and interests, Marydel loved her family first, her church, music, gardening, animals, and cooking. A member of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, she strongly supported causes for veterans and children. She was most proud of the Forty Fingers Piano Quartet she founded at RW-C where they played music for fun, holidays and patriotic events.

Her words of wisdom for a long happy life were to "Laugh a Lot, Do the Daily Crossword, Eat Dark Chocolate and have a Daily Libation". Marydel shared that in heaven she was looking forward to singing in the choir, and taking care of the animals.

The family extends our thanks and appreciation to the many friends and caregivers at RW-C for their friendship and loving care they provided throughout her life but especially in the last several years. A special thanks to Irene Buckholtz and Kay Klein, for their special love and support of Marydel.

A private family graveside service is planned at Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, Va. Memorial contributions can be made to the charity of your choice.
