    Ward Family,
    Mrs. Ward became a part of the McGee family when Bill became part of us. Mrs. Ward was a delight. I loved her spunk and vim. I remember how well she liked to play games – and win. The last time I saw her, I was helping her sneak tastes of the candy we were making. We will remember her fondly.
