Mrs Alfa Carr
1933 - 2019



Mrs. Alfa Carr was a member of the JHS faculty teaching home economics from 1969 to 1971.

Alfa Schermerhorn Watson Carr, 86, peacefully passed to heaven on January 7, 2019 in Fruitland Park, Florida. Her faithful husband of 67 years, both born in Hammond, NY, had quite an adventure covering the world living in Germany, Japan, Hawaii, Florida, South and North Carolinas, Texas, California, and New York; plus traveling throughout the United States, Pacific Rim, Caribbean Islands and Europe.

Alfa is survived by her husband (Garnard “Gary”), her brother (Richard “Dick” Watson), three children (Steve, Mike and Debby), grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Alfa earned degrees from Hammond Central, Canton ATM, Florida State and University of Hawaii. She taught school in Florida, Japan, and South Carolina/

Together they supported Gary’s 23-year military career plus owned enterprises ranging from digging lawn wells to a fleet of deep-sea fishing boats.

The family marker will be updated where her parents (Eddie “Dutch” and Harriet Watson) rest. Alfa’s ashes will be placed on the beach she so loved in a family reunion.


The Johnson High alumni will miss Mrs Carr very much.
