Message From The Family

Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Marge by adding your memories and photos.

Marjorie Louise Peters Ware, 92, of Louisville returned to her beloved Heavenly Father on June 6, 2017 at Norton Brownsboro Hospital surrounded by her family. "Marge" is remembered by all who were privileged to know her as a devout woman of faith and impeccable loyalty to those she cherished. She led an amazing life, always full of joy and looking for a new adventure. She was an inspiration to all who knew her, with dear friends of all generations. One of her many gifts was her beautiful cursive script and the hand-written letters which maintained long term friendships. Another of her considerable gifts was a beautiful soprano voice and a love of gospel music which in her earlier years provided support to her father's ministry.

Marge was born in Owensboro KY to the late Rev. C E Peters and Helen Elaine Patrick Peters. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Hilton "Short" Ware in 2002; and sister, Betty Peters Buchanan.

Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Dr. J. Patrick Ware of Atlanta; daughter Sharon Ware of Louisville; beloved friend and caregiver Donna Gish; brother, Dr. C. Kenneth Peters (Rhoda Anne), grandchildren, Rev. Patrick Ware (Jordan) of Winchester VA and Jennifer Ware Erdoes (Kenny) of Des Moines IA; 5 great grandchildren: Emma Erdoes, Jake Erdoes, Nathan Erdoes, Max Ware, and Glennes Ware.

Her family is grateful to her dear friends Dotty Bacon, Leslie Biller, Shirley Cannan, Kay Hart, and Karen Aubrey for their steadfast friendship and support these last few years.

The service will be Thursday, June 8 at 10:00 AM CST at Glenn Funeral Home with Reverend Bob Howell officiating. Visitation is from 9:00 AM. Entombment will follow at Owensboro Memorial Gardens.

A lifelong dedicated Christian, memorial contributions may be made to Jeffersontown United Methodist Church 10219 Taylorsville Road, Louisville, KY 40299 where she was a member.

I am so sorry - I only met Marjorie a couple of times but she was so warm, and full of life, and her spirit! She was truly a blessing. You couldn't help but feel better after visiting as she projected such warmth and mirth - she was one of a kind. Bless you, Marjorie for just being you - you will be missed by all
