Personal life 
Born in New York City to William Stanley and May (née Davenport) Eckert, Seymour was the seventh generation of a theatrical family traceable to 18th century Ireland. Her great-uncle was character actor Harry Davenport, and her two older brothers were writer James Seymour and actor John Seymour. She never married or had children.
She was a guest star on many American television series in the 1960s and 1970s. She appeared in two episodes of Perry Mason; in 1963 she played Hettie Randall in "The Case of the Festive Felon", and in 1964 she played Bonnie Mae Wilmet in "The Case of the Bullied Bowler". She portrayed Amelia Tarbell in Pollyanna (1960), Esther in the episode "Final Escape" of Alfred Hitchcock Presents (1985), and Miss Tilford in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. She played Ms. Frost in "A Visit to Upright", a 1972 episode of Bonanza, as well as three different characters in four episodes of Gunsmoke: "Snow Train Parts 1 & 2", "The Wake", and "Kitty's Injury". Her last performance was in the feature film Field of Dreams, which was released after her death.
