Born and raised in Lancaster, Tennessee, Mary Magdalene Bennett was one of twelve children blessed unto the union of the late Robert and Laura Bennett. Mrs. Ware had a love for gardening. She was gifted from God himself with a green thumb that could grow anything, as her family would say, even a stick. An excellent housekeeper, a great cook, and a lovely decorator- Mary was the true definition of the perfect homemaker. She enjoyed swinging in the gazebo and listening to her late husband, J.D. play the fiddle. Mary will be remembered for looking like a million bucks every time she left the house, playing tricks on her family, and faith in her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
