Elizabeth Ware Harper Obituary, 2009






Elizabeth Ware Harper, known as “Betsy” to friends and family, passed away peacefully on August 1, 2009. Born May 31, 1923, in New York, she grew up spending her summers on Martha’s Vineyard Island, Massachusetts. She attended Whee-lock College in Boston, Massachusetts, and became an elementary school teacher. On June 14, 1947, she married William “Bill” Woodhouse Harper. Over the years, they moved to New Jersey, spent some years living in Florida and ultimately moved to San Diego, California. In California, Betsy became a preschool teacher for years, but in 1976 went to work for Sea World in San Diego, California. Betsy worked in the merchandise department of Sea World for 33 years enjoying the beauty of the park and the friendship of her co-workers. Betsy loved animals, in particular her cats, but to know Betsy, you would know that the real loves of her life were her three daughters and two grandchildren. Betsy is preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Jack and Paul, her sister Anne and her husband Bill. She is survived by her sister Patricia Ware Vann of Martha’s Vineyard, MA; her daughter, Wendy Ware Harper of San Diego, CA; her daughter and son-in-law, Elizabeth (Libby) and Peter Caffall-Davis of Hyder, Alaska; daughter and son-in-law, JudyAnne Harper and Charles Snyder of San Diego, CA; and her two grandchildren, Katherine “Katie” Snyder and Charles “Chuckie” Snyder of San Diego, CA.

Hadon Dewey Ware Obituary, 2010

WARE, DEWEY May 23, 1925 – January 5, 2010 Dewey Ware was born in Cramerton, N.C., the eldest son of seven children. After a long illness, he passed away peacefully at his home in Diamond Springs surrounded by his loving family. Dewey’s reputation as a hard worker began as a youngster selling ”dewberries” and newspapers on the streets of Charlotte. At the age of 17, Dewey joined the U.S. Navy and was honored to serve his country in World War II. He served on the USS Brown, DD 546 in the Pacific Theatre. His ship was in Halsey’s Typhoon where he rescued fellow shipmates from the deadly ocean waters, gave up his bunk and food to the men who had been in the water for five days. After the war, Dewey followed his shipmate, ”Babe” to Reno, Nevada where he met and married the love of his life, Maryellen ”Norma” Hodder in 1950. He often referred to Norma as ”his only stroke of genius.” It was in Reno that their first of four girls, Priscilla was born. After a move to Sacramento, Glenda, Gloria and Loretta were born while he was a brakeman and switchman for Southern Pacific Railroad in Roseville, CA. Dewey and Norma purchased their first house in 1954 in North Highlands where all four girls attended Highlands High School. Dewey started as a laborer for A. Teichert Construction and was promoted to foreman in 1962. He was respected and loved by the people who worked for him and was admired as a trouble shooter for difficult jobs. He went on to be the foreman on the bridge built over the American River from Sacramento State University and put in most of the subdivisions in the Pocket area of South Sacramento. Dewey was a member of the Operating Engineers, Local 3 for 47 years. Leadership, volunteerism and mentoring came easy for Dewey. He was President and Life Member of the Mother Lode Lions Club. He also served as Discovery Zone Chair and Region Chairman for Lions International, District 4C-5. Dewey is the only Lion to be honored twice as ”District Lion of the Year” and went on to have the highest honor, the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellow Award presented to him in 1991. On a national level, he was recognized by President Bush with the ”Daily Points of Light” award for his volunteerism. A natural athlete, Dewey loved to fish, play softball, golf, camping, bike riding and abalone diving with his family. It was a rare weekend that Dewey and Norma did not have an outing scheduled that included the entire family and often times many friends. A great husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend, Dewey was not a complicated man. Dewey called each one of his daughters every day and repeated his signature line, ”Have I told you lately how much I love you?” He adored his family, his friends and his community. Doing for others and helping those in need came natural for him. Whatever he had, he would give you without hesitation. If he didn’t have it, he would find it for you. Dewey mentored many throughout his 84 years. Donations may be made in Dewey’s honor to Snowline Hospice, the Diamond Springs Fire Department or the Mother Lode Lions Club. A celebration of life is scheduled for Saturday, January 30, 2010 at 1pm at the Mother Lode Lions Club at the corner of Missouri Flat and Pleasant Valley Roads in Diamond Springs.

John Keith Ware Obituary, 2010

John Ware

John Keith Ware, born June 13, 1922, in Spokane, Wash., passed peacefully at home in the arms of his wife, Betty, and family, Oct. 17, 2010.

John’s journey touched his country, as a Marine serving in the Pacific during World War II; and his community, as an independent contractor, member of California Search and Rescue, and avid lover of people. His family knew him to be a man of great patience, love and giving, a mentor and a friend. They also appreciated his love of the outdoors and animals, his endless stories, and his wonderful sense of humor. This world is a better place because of him, and though sorely missed, his gift of love of life and laughter is amplified through those he touched: his loving friend and wife, Betty; daughters, Janet and Lori; sons, Bryant, Craig and Doug; daughters-in-law, Kim and Stacy; grandchildren, Lisa Freathy (Andrew), Breianna Curry, and Katie, Jared, Cami, Megan, Jaiden, Ellie, Ryan and Dylan Ware; and many loving friends and acquaintances. Every day is a gift. Thank you, John.

Friends, acquaintances and loved ones are welcome at a memorial service Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010, 2 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 2590 Trower Ave., Napa. Donations, if desired, may be directed to either the much-deserved Kaiser Hospice, or the Napa Valley Nursery School (NVNS) John Ware Memorial Scholarship Fund (P.O. Box 2213, Napa, CA 94558).
