Agnes L. Ware, also known as Ginger to her college friends, of Doylestown, passed away at home on Wednesday, June 13, 2012. She was 87.
Agnes was the devoted wife of the late Richard Cromb Ware.
Born in the Philadelphia area, she was the daughter of the late Donald and Lelia (Champion) Lindsay.
Agnes attended Lower Merion High School and went on to attend Principia College in Elsah, Ill.
She worked for Burpee Gardens during high school and between college years reflecting her love of gardening. She then married her high school sweetheart and settled in a Philadelphia suburb before moving to Quakertown.
They then built a home in Bedminster and moved there to raise their family on the beautiful four-acre property filled with gardens, fruit trees and a big back yard.
After the death of her husband, she moved to Doylestown to be closer to her church community where she was a lifetime member at First Church of Christ Scientist, Doylestown. Later in life, she worked for H&R Block preparing taxes for 10 years.
Agnes loved many things in nature. She was an avid gardener, bird aficionado and loved following the stars and planets. She was always helping others.
She volunteered much of her time to her church and Peace Valley Nature Center in New Britain.
She was an amazing, loving mother to her seven children: Alex Ware of Charleston, Ill., Candace Sawyer of Brookfield, Wisc., Richard Ware of Perkasie, Pa., Holly Moyer of Pipersville, Pa., Donald Ware of Merrimack, N.H., Malcolm Ware of Tucson, Ariz., and Aline D’Agostino of Lansdale, Pa.; grandmother of 23, and great-grandmother of one.
A Memorial Service is scheduled for Oct. 13, when her family can gather locally to enjoy her memory. The location and time are still to be determined.
