Annabelle A. Seamon

ITHACA – Annabelle Angeline (Underwood) Seamon passed away peacefully at the age of 96 on Thursday, September 29, 2022.  Born at home in Danby, NY, on April 20, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Vernon Frederick Underwood, Sr. and Lillian (Kline) Underwood.  Annabelle was a 1944 graduate of Ithaca High School and lived in the area for most of her life.  During World War II, she worked at Ithaca Gun Company, and went on to manage the toy department at Woolworth’s.  She retired from Cornell University as a bookstore manager.

Annabelle was a talented seamstress and frequently made clothing for her children and family.  She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Enfield Volunteer Fire Company and former Girl Scout and Cub Scout Leader.  She generously contributed to numerous charities when able, including veteran and Native American organizations, food banks, and Doctors without Borders.

Annabelle is survived by her children, Jeffrey Brainard (Rosie), Paul Tunison (Kathryn), Elena Welch, and Leon Tunison (Patty); and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Randy Brainard (Linda); daughter, Amy Cusimano (Cosmo); son-in-law, Steven Welch; and all eight of her siblings.

Friends and family are invited to a committal service at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 2, 2022, at Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve, 293 Irish Hill Road, Newfield, NY 14867.  To share a memory of Annabelle, please visit www.lansingfuneralhome.com.

Many years ago I lived across the street from Annabelle. She was a great friend and role model. Life events caused us to lose touch. Early this year I spoke with Amy who identified herself as Annabelle's daughter. I was saddened to learn of her passing. I wanted to take this opportunity to express my regard for both of them. I have many fond memories of her entire family.
