Tina Ware Life Story

The Lord called Tina Sue Turner Ware from her earthly home on March 22, 2024. She was 93.

A visitation for Mrs. Ware will be held from 10am-11am, Tuesday, March 26, 2024 at Sullivan Funeral Home under the direction of Cammack Family Director of Funerals. Funeral Service will be held following the visitation at 11:00am. Those officiating will be her nephew, Chris Kane of Helotes and cousin, Dan Manuel of Palestine. Tina was born in Olney, Texas on June 23, 1930 to English Jesse Turner and Viva Lee Presnall Turner. Tina was the second oldest and last surviving of four girls.

She was the editor of her school annual, which included all grades and was voted "Senior Favorite Girl" in her graduating class of 1948 from Newcastle High School. Upon graduation, she attended Texas Women's College in Denton. Two years later, on her 20th birthday, she married the love of her life, W. T. Ware, III and became a resident of Marshall from that point forward. Their union of marriage brought forth four children, Suzan, Keith, David and Daryl.

She is preceded in death by her husband, W. T. Ware, III in 2014; in 1993, at the age 39, their son, Keith Ware lost his lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis, and in 1999 at age 43, they also tragically lost a second son, David Ware following his battle with cancer. She is also preceded in death by her parents, English Jesse and Viva Lee Turner; her sisters, Colleen Kane, Mozelle Landry and Bettye Lander.

She is survived by her daughter, Suzan Lanclos and her husband, Charles of Hallsville; her son, Daryl Ware and his wife, Debbie of Marshall; her daughter-in-law, Mary Katheryn Ware of Marshall; four grandchildren, Stacy Sheffield of Dripping Springs, Stefanie Burgin and her husband, Beau of Montgomery, Toby Ware and his wife, Samantha of Marshall and Blake Ware of Marshall; and two great-grandchildren, Jack and Charlee Burgin. Tina is also survived by several cousins, nieces, nephews, special loved ones Ryan and Melissa Lanclos of Conroe and her longtime friend and caregiver, Ginger Wiltse of Marshall who has been working for the Wares for the past 40 years. Ginger's love, care and loyalty for the Wares has been cherished beyond measure.

During Tina's life as a Marshallite, she was a faithful member of East Burleson Church of Christ and Eastern Hills Church of Christ; a devoted wife, homemaker and caring mother. Tina loved her family dearly. One way she demonstrated her love for her family was through her excellent cooking.

Besides caring for her family, Tina also enjoyed working in her beautiful yard...tending to her dogwood trees, azaleas, wisteria and bridal wreath bushes. She was meticulous about picking up every pinecone and pine needle even into her late 80s and early 90s.

To those who knew her well, her claim to fame was her love for the game of tennis. She brought home many trophies from tournaments all across the country. After winning a State Championship, her tennis team went on to compete in the USTA League Tennis National Championship in 2001 in Palm Springs, California. Her family credits her longevity, stamina and physical health up to the end to her many years on the court, as well as her nutritious cooking and herbal supplements.

The family wishes to thank the entire staff at Marshall Manor West for their excellent care and kindness given to Tina for the past 13 months, and the staff members of Heart to Heart Hospice who cared for her. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

The family requests that memorials in Tina's memory be made to Harrison County Historical Society, 1 Peter Whetstone Square, Marshall, TX 75670.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
