Obituary for Beverly Ware

Beverly Bone Ware passed away peacefully on Monday, September 28, 2020 at
Mississippi Baptist Medical Center in Jackson. She was 74.
A native and lifelong resident of the Jackson area, she was born December 28, 1945 the
daughter of the late Walter Jennings Bone, Jr. and the late Elizabeth Swinford Bone.
Beverly was a 1964 graduate of Murrah High School and attended Mississippi
University for Women. She served as treasurer and was an organizer of many MHS
class reunions. At her core Beverly was always a helper and a supporter of others. This
shined through in her professional career as an administrative assistant for several
businesses and corporations. Through her loving nature and giving spirit she made
many lifelong friends during her career. Throughout her life, she was active in her
community, including serving as an ambassador for the Madison Chamber of
Commerce and enjoying active membership in the Madison Garden Club.
Beverly was a wonderful wife and a devoted mother, grandmother, great grandmother,
sister, aunt and friend. Family was what she held most dear, and her grandchildren
were one of the greatest joys in her life. Beverly was affectionately called BeBe by her
grandchildren as well as by her nieces and nephews. She loved to travel, especially
escapades with her family to the beach. The beach was her happy place, and she
married her loving husband, Jimmy, in St. Thomas. In their over 30 years together, they
enjoyed memorable trips back to the Virgin Islands and all over the United States. The
care and devotion he showed to her in their time together and especially over the last
few months was immeasurable. Beverly was a talented amateur artist who dedicated
much of her time lovingly drawing and painting for her grandchildren. Like her
beloved mother, Beverly loved the color purple and making others feel special and truly
loved in her presence.
She was a member of St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church in Madison. Her faith
and Christian walk were evident to all who knew her.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by a sister, Melinda Bone Hooker;
and brother, Walter Jennings Bone, III.
She is survived by her husband of almost 30 years, Jimmy Ware, of Madison; daughter,
Ashley Puckett Ewing (Chandler), of Richmond, VA; son, Lee Puckett (Katherine), of
Canton, MS; sister, Ginger Gamblin (Rick), of Ridgeland, MS; sister-in-law Susan Bone
