Obituary for Virginia Seda

Today we mourn the passing of Virginia Seda, born 03/26/1941 in Maunabo, PR., who died peacefully in Reading, PA. She was the daughter of Saturnino Lebron-Rivera and Carmen Sostre-Lebron.

Virginia was a beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was predeceased by her parents: Saturnino Lebron-Rivera and Carmen Sostre-Lebron; her son Samuel Seda; her siblings: Eulogia Lebron-Garcia, Evarista Lebron-Clemente, and Bonafacio Lebron; her nephews: David Garcia, Josue Ruperto Ruiz, and Ricardo Lebron.

In her formative years Virginia attended Alfonso Casta Martínez High School in Maunabo, PR. She then studied at the Inter-American University in San Germán, PR.

On 4/15/1967 at her hometown of Maunabo, PR she married her beloved Miguel Seda. They were married until his passing on 10/22/2014, after 47 beautiful years of marriage.

In 1967 after marrying Miguel, they relocated to the city of Reading, PA. There, she continued her studies and attended the Bible Institute of the Spanish Eastern District of the Assemblies of God in Philadelphia where she graduated with honors. She first began serving at her local church as a Deacon and Sunday school teacher and then as a Superintendent of the Sunday School Program. She eventually taught Bible Institute classes at the Bible Institute of the Spanish Eastern District of the Assemblies of God satellite schools located in the churches La Luz del Mundo, Reading, PA, Primera Iglesia Tesalonica Pottstown, PA, and 1st Spanish Assemblies of God Lancaster, PA. She was then the Principal of the Bible Institute of the Spanish Eastern District of the Assemblies of God satellite school "La Vid Verdadera" located at the Segunda Iglesia Tesalonica in Reading, PA. She became a Licensed Minister of the Assemblies of God in 1982, and a fully Ordained Minister in 1987. She served in her capacity as a Licensed Minister overseeing the church Primera Iglesia Tesalonica Pottstown, Pa in 1984. She served as their Pastor until December of 2012. She also founded the Segunda Iglesia Tesalonica Assemblies of God Reading, Pa in 1990. She served there as a Senior Pastor until October of 2020, serving in both locations. Under her and husband’s leadership, they were able to procure the tabernacle and parish property located at 924 Greenwich St Reading, PA which became the Segunda Iglesia Tesalonica's permanent church home.

In fulfilling one of her ministerial duties, she married hundreds of couples in both Berks and Montgomery County. Through Rev. Virginia and Miguel Seda's ministry, many souls came to believe in the saving faith of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8

A common theme when described by those who knew her is that she was a people person. She loved connecting with and serving her community and especially the body of Christ with heart, joy, and through her exemplary faith. Virginia’s faith was contagious and inspiring. Her children are thankful for the most beautiful thing she’s leaving them: Faith. Her favorite bible verse was: “I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me", Philippians 4:13. Her favorite chapter in the book of Psalm was Psalms 23 - The Lord is her shepherd, she shall not want.

She retired from full time ministry in the year 2020. However, she retained her minister’s license with the Assemblies of God. In retirement she joyfully attended Glad Tidings Assemblies of God in West Lawn, PA. Even in retirement, she assisted in praying for the prayer petitions that would come into the church. She was a prayer warrior for many and believed in going boldly before the throne of God in prayer and supplication.

Virginia is survived by her children: Miguel Seda Jr., Luz V. Rodriguez-Seda and spouse Javier Rodriguez-Vellón, Orlando Seda and spouse Claribel Seda, Carmen Orsini and spouse Wilfredo Orsini, Luis A. Seda; grandchildren: William A. Colon, Luzllarie Rodriguez, Alexandra Herting, Adelina Seda, Sariah Seda, Wilfredo Orisini Jr, Ezequiel J. Orsini, Emily Padilla-Orsini; four great grandchildren; siblings Ignacio Lebron, Elizabeth Ruiz and spouse Carlos Ruiz, Sara Rodriguez-Lebron and spouse Miguel Rodriguez; multiple nieces & nephews.

We remember Virginia’s life today and celebrate it with fond memories that we will keep alive forever.
