Dolores Mae Ware, age 83, born October 7, 1928 in Minot, ND to Robert and LaVerne Bunney. She was the eldest of four. She was a born caretaker to all she loved. On December 13, 2011 she was called home to Jesus. She leaves behind her loving husband of 65 years, Reggie Ware; her mother, LaVerne Bunney, of Silver Lake, WA; brother, Bob Bunney of Silver Lake; sister, Joan Oravetz of Sequim, WA; son, Douglas Ware of Phoenix, AZ; daughter, Julie Allen of Benton City, WA; grandson, Kelly Allen and his wife, Michelle Allen of Hermiston, OR; granddaughter, Brooke Zueger and her husband, Blake Zueger of Lake Stevens, WA; and great-grandchildren, Hunter and Ryan Allen of Hermiston, OR. She was a “tiger”! With her spark and a smile she lived this life as a loving mother, grandmother, and devoted wife. She was a “doer”• Always going above and beyond to make even the smallest thing, special. She was an avid gardener and took great pride in being a homemaker all of her life. She added sparkle and class to all she touched. She was never too busy to talk or listen and loved to laugh, sing and even be silly. She was our teacher, counselor and friend. She will be greatly missed. Her candle may be out, but her “little light” will always shine.
