Janis Carol Roath Ware, age 74, passed away in the early morning of Monday, March 29th, 2021, after a seven-year battle with lymphoma, in Baton Rouge. Jan was born on March 10th, 1947, in El Paso, Texas. She married her childhood sweetheart, Air Force Veteran Travis Vennard Ware, on December 26th, 1963, in El Paso, Texas. Together, they raised five children. She was a homemaker, and crafter turned seamstress, and later administrative assistant. She spent a good portion of her life in charitable endeavors ranging from coordinating a community food pantry to providing Sunday morning breakfast for neighborhood children. She always carried a smile, had a wicked sense of humor, a purse full of peppermints, and a hug for any who needed one. She believed in living and loving life in all ways, from family dinners to skydiving or even taking a motorcycle trip up the Mississippi River. She is survived by her husband, Travis "Buddy" Ware; children, Sondra Mitchell, Rhonda Hano, Patricia Ray, and Travis "Chip" Ware; brother, Donald Roath; seven grandchildren, Ashley, Courtney, Walter, Connor, Brooklyn, Audra, and Luke; and nine great-grandchildren with two more on the way; several nieces, nephews, and cousins; and countless others who considered her to be a second mother. She is preceded in death by her daughter, Deborah Gail Ware; her mother, Norma Hahn Stone; and step-father, Bill Stone. Visitation will be held at Greenoaks Funeral Home, at 9595 Florida Blvd in Baton Rouge, from 11 am-Noon on Friday, April 2nd, with a graveside service to follow.
