Mildred McAfee Teer, formerly of Waco, Texas, passed away peacefully at the age of 90 in Conroe, Texas, after a long bout with Alzheimer’s. Services are planned for 10:30 a.m., Saturday, April 1, at Wilkirson-Hatch-Bailey Funeral Home in Waco. Interment will be at Waco Memorial Park immediately following the service.
Mildred was born in Belton, Texas, to A.J. McFarland and wife, Addie Lou Boyd, the second of five children. They moved to Waco when she was 12 years old and remained there, graduating from high school. She worked various jobs while in school and after graduation. She married Gerald L. McAfee, Jr., in 1944, after he returned from his tour of duty in the Army during WWII. He continued to serve until his discharge in 1945. Together they had four children and raised their family in Waco. Gerald passed away in 1989. She worked most of their years together and built a career as a full charge bookkeeper, while managing a home and four children.
In 1991 Mildred married J.L. Scott and moved to Temple, Texas, his hometown. They had a wonderful time traveling the US in his travel trailer for weeks at a time. She was widowed again when Mr. Scott passed away in 2000. She moved back to Waco to be near family and spent time volunteering at her church. In 2005 she married Clifford Teer and had a great time traveling and cruising the world with him. He passed away in 2015. She moved to Conroe to be near her daughter, when she needed to be in Memory Care.
Mildred is preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Carol McAfee Ellis; her brothers, Alvin McFarland, Herman McFarland, and Joe McFarland; her sister, Murt McFarland Scrivner; and son-in-law, Joseph Morrow, Jr.
She is survived by son, Robert McAfee; and daughters, Gerry McAfee Morrow, and Donna McAfee Van Wyk and husband, David Van Wyk, Sr.; six grandchildren; eight great grandchildren, one great great grandchild; and numerous nieces and nephews.
