Anne L. McWhorter
Anne Louise McWhorter, 80, of San Antonio, died on Sept. 25, 2018, of complications from Alzheimer’s disease in San Antonio.
She was born on Sept. 2, 1938, in Harlingen, to Mary Ann (Hanford) and Virgil “Burt” Hack. She was the eldest of six siblings.
At the time of her death, she was a resident under the care of Windsor Mission Oaks in San Antonio. McWhorter was formerly a longtime resident of both Uvalde and Eagle Pass.
The family says she was a compassionate and devout Christian woman who loved her friends and family deeply and often expressed that love through her genuine smile; in turn, she was beloved by all who shared her friendship. In addition to raising a family of four, she was an accomplished career woman; a school teacher and later principal of the Redeemer Episcopal School in Eagle Pass during the late 1970s through the early 1980s. Later in life she served for nearly a decade as a secretary for St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Uvalde.
Outside of work and family, her passions included volunteer service to the Concho Valley Council of the Boys Scouts of America, membership in good standing with the Daughters of the American Revolution, volunteering with the Uvalde Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, being an active member in each church congregation she joined, and serving as a caregiver to members of Uvalde’s elderly community.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband of 32 years, Ted William McWhorter, who died in 2000.
McWhorter is survived by three daughters, Judy Lin Armentrout and husband, Robert, of Atascadero, California, Nancy Louise Burke and husband, Larry, of Centerburg, Ohio, and Rhonda Jane Rhodes and husband, Jere, of Eagle Pass; son, William Alexander McWhorter and wife, Amy, of Kyle; seven grandchildren: Rebecca Koznek, Lindsay Jagosz, Jeremiah Rhodes, Adam Burke, Kyle Burke, Mendalin Alfaro and Maya McWhorter; and five great-grandchildren: Madelyn Koznek, Weston Koznek, Adrienne Koznek, Laura Burke and James Alfaro.
A visitation was held on Sept. 27, 2018, at Yeager Barrera Mortuary in Eagle Pass. A graveside service of Christian burial was held on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio
