THERESA WARE passed away on July 30, 2019, at the age of 64 in her Philadelphia home surrounded by her family.
Theresa was born in West Philadelphia to William Curtis and Ruth (Fortune) Curtis on June 3, 1955. Theresa was a graduate of West Philadelphia High School and then went on to hold many clerical jobs until she found her forever job at Philadelphia Elwyn as an Administrative Assistant in Human Resources. During her tenure at Philadelphia Elwyn, she met fellow employee Charles Ware, who she went on to marry in her family home on December 28, 1985.
Theresa enjoyed spending time with family and doing simple things such as watching tv and finishing word puzzles. She was most known for her humor and style, both in hair and dress and made sure that every time you saw her she had a new hairstyle and a new pair of shoes. Though reserved at first, once welcomed, she was allowed you into her world of inside jokes and silent, shade-filled, humor which you had to catch from her descriptive glances. The best way to succinctly subscribe is "so cool," as she continued to get new tattoos and piercings well into her fifties, with her last being a matching tattoo with her daughter.
Theresa is survived by her husband Charles Ware, daughter Chantel Ware aka Boo-Boo, mother Ruth Curtis, and sister Portia Curtis, her beloved cat Tony Ware, and dog Marko Ware. Theresa also leaves behind a host of family and friends.
