Adelaide Schild

December 20, 2001 — February 10, 2022

Adelaide McMillan Schild was born December 20th, 2001, in Germantown, Tennessee and went to be with her savior on February 10th, 2022. She was known always by her nickname, Addie Mac or sometimes just Mac to her family and close friends.

Addie Mac was a sophomore at the University of Memphis where she was majoring in Hotel and Resort Management.  Her major stemmed from her experiences travelling with her family. Her first trip was when she was 5 weeks old, and she attended a Kappa Delta regional leadership conference.   Addie Mac and her family had a love of travel and appreciation of different cultures and views.  She had great empathy for those less fortunate and a great appreciation of how the world could be so amazing and yet so different.  A common message from friends is that Addie Mac was a friend during the highs and lows, and she was the friend who others went to as a sounding board.  Addie Mac was born an old soul; her family knew she was born for great things when her nursery caregiver said she was the captain of the 2-year-old class.   She was brilliant, exceptional, funny, sweet, and could think fast on her feet.   She was mature beyond her years.  If she had an interest in something, she became an expert.  Mac had so many interests including current events, social justice, cars, decorating and organizing, and her friends.  She was really looking forward to making her way independently and had such unlimited potential.  She collapsed and passed away while getting ready for a job interview where she was excited that if she stuck with this job after graduation she could live in Canada or London.

Mac was close to her family and was the baby sister who made all laugh.  It was normal for the family to call and text multiple times daily and every exchange ended with an I love you. She was beloved by all and lit up a room when she walked in.  Her smile made everything right. She was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, a lifetime Girl Scout and involved in many organizations through out her life.

She leaves behind her parents, Thomas, and Melanie McMillan Schild and sister, Emmaline Greer Schild of Germantown, Tennessee and uncles, aunts, and cousins.  She is preceded in death by her grandparents, James Lewis McMillan and Evelyn Wright McMillan of Franklin, Tennessee and Otto Schild and Gladys Breckliin Schild of Monroe, Wisconsin.

She will be interred with her nana and pops at Williamson County Memorial Gardens in Franklin, Tennessee. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to either Girl Scouts Heart of the South, Kappa Delta Sorority, or the American Heart Associations.
