|Ware, Isidora C.
Birth: 1909-06-30 in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia
|Isidora C. Ware, born in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia on June 30, 1909, departed this life on May 9, 2012 at Lucille Brown's Assisted Living Home, where she had lived since July 1, 2005.|
After Isidora's birth, her mother went to Washington, DC to work, leaving Isidora with her mother's father. Her mother returned to West Virginia as often as she could to visit her father and her daughter. Her mother stayed in Washington until her death. Isidora was an only child, born to parents who were only children.
Isidora finished her high school education and attended Storer College, after which she left home and went to D.C to work and live. She later met and married Jesse Ware. They owned and operated a store on Benning Road, N.E., which sold fresh chickens and fish. After they retired, they traveled frequently, going on cruises and to Japan, China, and Hawaii. Jesse died June 21, 1982.
While in D.C. , she was a member of Pisgah Baptist Church of Washington, where she served on the usher board. As an avid bowler, she and friends bowled twice a week.
In the latter part of December 1999 her "Calvert County extended family" moved her from her apartment in D.C., where she had been living alone for 17 years following her husband's death, to the home of Myrtle Patterson, a friend of more than 67 years. By January 2000 Isidora was moved into an apartment at Calvert County Senior Pines where she resided until 2005. While at the Pines she joined a bowling team that she played on well into her 90's. Mr. & Mrs. Desmond Burton graciously transported her each week. Isidora joined Patuxent U.M.C Church in 2000.
All who met and knew Isidora will always remember her for her wonderful smile and her easy going manner. She was truly a sweetheart and had the disposition of an angel. She loved stuff animals and during the time she was bedridden, she held on to a black and white dog given her by Darlene Long on her 100th birthday.
She leaves to mourn her death, her long time friend Myrtle Patterson, Alice Sewell, her part-time companion, Bessie Moore, Betty Reynolds, Darlene Long, and Christine Long, who visited her, and Patuxent's church family who inquired about her well being frequently. Lucile Brown, her caregiver and friend, took Isidora wherever she went. Isidora enjoyed going for rides. Lucille's personality was a perfect match for Isidora. Deborah Harvey was also a companion for Isidora. We all have been blessed to have had Isidora in our lives.
