There was nothing she was afraid to try, from skydiving, scuba diving, white water rafting, to living upon a boat for seven years traveling the open seas. Soon after, she took the time to explore the open land traveling amongst a fifth wheel. Here she came to appreciate the true beauty of what God created around her. On every adventure, she made a point to spread love and a smile, touching so many lives. She will always be remembered and cherished. She belonged to a loving church, Harves Baptist Church, whom helped to keep her faith strong and a devoted husband of thirteen years, Frederico C. Sanchez that never left her side. Seema will be deeply missed by a wide circle.
She will be forever loved by her husband, Frederico C. Sanchez; daughters, Kristy Jewell, Nicole Jewell, and Brandi Ross; stepsons, Shelby Sanchez and Frederico Sanchez Jr.; stepdaughters, Jessica Alferink and Marrissa Drew; son-in-law, Brian Gostomski; grandchildren, Mark Rader, Donny McKenzie, Brandon Gostomski, Jasmine Evans, Echo Sanchez, Mallory Alfernik, Brooklyn Alferink, and Wyatt Drew; niece, Amanda Stang Lampkin and former husband, Patrick Jewell.
