Lynn Law Ware (Rosie, RoRo) was born on October 25, 1929 in Alcoa, Tennessee to Maude and Enoch Law. She grew up in Maryville, Tennessee in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Lynn worked at Georgia Tech where she met and later married Edwin Ellis Ware on September 28, 1956. They moved to Jackson, Mississippi soon after and were blessed with four daughters. Lynn was a very involved mother and devoted her life to raising her girls. She loved to sew for her daughters, cook adventurously, and travel with friends and family. She was a long-time member of Wesley and St. Matthew’s and found so many of her dearest, lifelong friends and travel buddies there. Spending summers in the Smoky Mountains with her parents and children was her favorite time of every year. She instilled her love of that place in her girls, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and every friend she could. Many treasured memories were made and family traditions born. Until her last breath, through all her struggles and illnesses, her concern was always for her “dear ones”, with evidence of that being discovered even since her death.

Lynn was preceded in death by her parents, her brother and sister in law, Maj Robert Mac and Margarette Law, and her son-in-law, Kip Lytle. She is survived by her daughters, Laurie (Max) Courtney, Jill Shields, Beth Lytle, and Sidney (Randy) Youngblood; grandchildren, Anna (Dunlap) Peeples, Caroline (Ryan) Sprague, Jessye McBride, Hope Courtney, Lynsey Lytle, Brennan Lytle, Daniel Youngblood, and Brayden Shields; great-grandchildren, Nina Rose, Piper June, Dunn & Walker Ware Peeples, and Baby-Bug Sprague; and many dear nieces and nephews.

Her family wishes to thank her many wonderful caregivers at Brookdale Brandon for eight years of friendships and loving care. Many thanks to the nurses at St. Dominic Hospital who took beautiful care of RoRo and them, and fell in love with her in her final days and cried along with them. She will be missed by all who ever crossed her path.

A memorial service is being held on Friday, January 12th at 2:00 pm at St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church, 7427 Old Canton Rd., Madison, MS 39110. Visitation will be at the church from 12:30 pm to 1:45 pm.
