SAN ANGELO Mary Ware Ford, 91, passed quietly from this life to the comfort of her Lord to reunite with her precious family, on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, at Regency House. She was preceded in death by her beloved parents, Charles and Ruth Kilpatrick Ware; her daughter, Sharon Ford Tackett; and her precious granddaughter, Rhonda Ann Tackett. Mary graduated from Central High School and attended San Angelo College. Her career choice was banking, but Mary always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. Her banking career began at San Angelo National Bank on Jan. 2, 1945. She became vice president of the loan department and retired in August 1987, after 42 years of service. Mary was very involved in her church, Sacred Heart Cathedral. She loved going to mass and was very active in her prayer and rosary group. She served on the school board of Angelo Catholic School and prepared many a meal for various parish functions. Mary is survived by her special church family that she held so dear and her extended cousins. John Childers and Janice Pelzel were her caregivers and attended to her needs after Sharon's death on June 28, 2011. She considered John her most trusted friend in business matters, especially in her latter years. Janice provided transportation and shopping duty for Mary after she moved into Rio Concho Terrace.
