Marguerite Ware Obituary
August 4, 1928 - July 28, 2018 Marguerite Ware: mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, passed away from natural causes on July 28, 2018, just shy of her 90th birthday. She was born Marguerite Aagaard, oldest child of Lenore and Arthur Aagaard in Chicago, Illinois. She grew up in Chicago with her brother Eric and younger sister Jeanette. At the age of 24 she decided California was the place to be and headed west with a friend. The Los Angeles area, La Crescenta, Montrose and then Glendale were her home from that time forward. She loved the ocean, warm weather, and all that Southern California had to offer. She never looked back. Marguerite had a long and successful career as a graphic artist. After retirement she filled her time with volunteer work for many organizations. Among them were: the Pasadena Playhouse, the Alex Theatre, The California Philharmonic and the Pasadena Pops. She could often be seen working on the Enchanted Railway at Descanso Gardens or calling bingo at Sparr Heights Senior Center. When she wasn't volunteering she was traveling, hiking with the Sierra Club, and enjoying new adventures. Marguerite was a dedicated and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She had a way of adding her artistic touch to everything she did. Marguerite was preceded in death by her parents Lenore and Arthur, her brother Eric, and her sister Jeanette. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Sue (Roland) Rounsevell, Mike (Karen) Ware, and Will (Regina) Ware. Her grandchildren will remember her fondly: Benjamin, Alissa (Alex), Jared (Angie), Evan, Cicely, Sarah and Amanda. Her two great-granddaughters, Hadley and Molly, will enjoy hearing stories about her in the years to come. Those who knew Marguerite will miss her encouragement, love of learning, and her devotion to family. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 25, 3:00pm at Light on the Corner Church, 1911 Waltonia Drive, Montrose. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Descanso Gardens, a place that filled her with joy.
