Services for Mable Wallin "Mel" Baughman , a second-grade teacher at University Park Elementary School, will be at 11 a.m. Monday at Highland Park Presbyterian Church.
Mrs. Baughman, 77, died Thursday in a Dallas nursing home from a lung infection.
She taught at University Park Elementary from 1949 until 1979, when she retired.
"She felt that she was doing an important job, laying down a foundation for the kids' future education," said her husband, Morris F. Baughman of Dallas.
Mrs. Baughman grew up in eastern Tennessee and taught college English and high school home-economics classes there before moving to the Dallas area in 1949.
Besides teaching, she performed in church plays and community theater and was an extra in several motion pictures, including JFK, her husband said.
In addition to her husband, Mrs. Baughman is survived by a daughter, Virginia Tully of Dallas, and a sister, Maxine George of Pittsburgh.
