Obituary for Iva Helen Lee

Iva Helen Lee, 90, passed away peacefully at Senior Care of Hewitt on December 15, 2017. Services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 20, in the Wilkirson-Hatch-Bailey chapel with Rev. Brian Coats officiating. Visitation will begin one hour prior to the service.

“Aunt Iva” as she was affectionately known by family and friends was born in Colorado City, Texas. She grew up in Mitchell County, and boarded the train for Ft. Worth when it was time to start school at TCU. She was the first woman to enroll in TCU's brand new 4-year aviation program. She received a BA in physics and math, and graduated with honors. Next, she taught for 9 years in public schools, including time in Germany at the Army Dependents' School. Other years were spent with Shell Oil in New Orleans, the Atomic Energy Commission in Ames, Iowa, and TRACOR in Austin. Iva then moved to Waco to be near family, and spent 23 years with McLennan Community College.

Aunt Iva was very active in retirement with volunteer work for Meals on Wheels, Woods Homeowners Association, Neighborhood Watch, and Waco-McLennan County Library, among others.

Iva was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Biggerstaff Lee; father, James Ralph Lee; and brother, James Rodney Lee.

Surviving Iva are nephews, Ralph Norman Lee and wife, Diana, and James Curtis Lee and wife, Kimberley; niece, Rebecca Lee Maxwell and husband, Bradley; and sister-in-law, Sara Norman Lee.

For those so desiring, the family requests memorials be made to Meals on Wheels at 501 W. Waco Dr, Waco TX 76707. The family invites you to leave a message or memory on our “Tribute Wall” at www.WHBfamily.com.
