Obituary

Melinda McAfee Hart, age 71, joined the church triumphant on Sunday, February 11, 2018 in San Antonio, TX.

Born January 10, 1947, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to Howard and Ruth McAfee. Growing up, she graduated from Monte Cassino High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, attended Sweetbriar College Virginia and Oklahoma State University, and graduated from the University of Tulsa with a B.A. in English. Later, she graduated from Lindenwood College with a M.A. in Corporate Communications.

Throughout her career, Melinda enjoyed her time as a staff writer for the Tulsa World Newspaper, an associate editor for Tulsalite Magazine, and an editor for Spotlite Magazine. Ultimately, she joined the corporate communications team at Southwestern Bell (SBC, AT&T) in Oklahoma City. During her time at Southwestern Bell, she moved to St. Louis, Missouri where she met Rob Hart whom she married on November 29, 1980. In 1993 the family moved to San Antonio, TX and in 2000 she retired from SBC/AT&T.

Melinda spent part of her time by involving herself in the community. Throughout the years she volunteered as a board member and treasurer at St. Luke's Episcopal School as well as Churchill High School, and a proud member of the Aggie's Mom Club (Gig 'Em!). She was also an avid volunteer at Family Services, a hospice care giver for Interim Healthcare, and a moderator for Women's Connection. In addition to volunteer work, Melinda was very involved in the church as a ruling elder at St. Charles Presbyterian Church while living in Missouri. She continued her church involvement as a ruling elder at San Pedro Presbyterian Church in San Antonio where she also helped as a Stephen Ministry Leader and Bible study leader.

Melinda is preceded in death by her parents, Howard and Ruth McAfee. Survived by her loving husband of 37 years, Rob Hart; Cherished son, Patrick Hart and his wife Becca; precious grandsons, Jackson and Logan Hart; Brother, Mike McAfee and wife Ann; Sister in law, Mary Ann Brown and her husband Bob.
Beloved Aunt of Jodie and Paige McAfee, Carrie and Jerry Bishop, Josh and Kenzie McAfee, Erin Edgington, Tracey and Alex Duran, Terri and Rob Gross.

Dear Great Aunt of Michael and Maggie Bishop, Boyd and Knox McAfee, Will and Charlie Gross.

Melinda was a loving wife, devoted mother, proud grandma, dear sister, aunt, great aunt and friend. She enjoyed traveling with cruises in Europe, Alaska, Canada, New England, Caribbean and touring the British Isles. The greatest joy in her life was spending her time with Rob, Patrick, Becca, and especially her grandsons, Jackson and Logan. Melinda will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. She will be forever in our hearts.
