Marjorie Osgood Ware
Marjorie Osgood Ware passed away at her home in Pinehurst the evening of January 24, 2013, following a lengthy illness.
Marjorie was born in Port Chester, N.Y., on April 29, 1923, to Harrington and Gladys Parker Osgood. She graduated from Mt. Vernon, N.Y., High School and, in 1943, from Boston University with a BA in languages. She was an excellent linguist, fluent in Italian and Spanish. She was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority and remained active in the KKG Alumni Association all her life.
She married her devoted husband of 67 years, Malcolm D. “Mac” Ware, on Oct. 13, 1945, at the Little Church Around The Corner in Manhattan.
They raised their family in Rumson, N.J., and Oceanport, N.J. Following the graduation of her children from high school, Marjorie became a successful licensed real estate broker in Oceanport, where she and Mac lived until their retirement in 1981, when they moved to Pinehurst.
In Pinehurst, the Wares were very active in organized bridge, particularly progressive and duplicate groups at the Pinehurst Country Club. In addition to many activities in The Village Chapel, Marjorie was a member of the College Club and the KKG Alumni Association. She worked for many years at the Chapel’s Bargain Box.
Marjorie is survived by her husband, Malcom; and her sons, Malcom and his wife, Ann, of New Knoxville, Ohio, and Robert and his fiancee, Maggi Smith, of Neptune, N.J. She was predeceased by her daughter, Pamela Anne.
