In memory of
Mrs. Helen T. Ware
Helen Tasi Ware, 69, died Saturday, December 18, 2010 at her home in Bartlett after living with multiple myeloma for six years. She was born January 25, 1941, in Lynn MA, to the late Niqe and Tasi Kureta. She graduated from Lynn Classical High School in 1958. She was a secretary in Lynn until 1969 and would later recall her fondness for this work, most notably at Lynn 5 Five Cent Savings Bank and the General Electric Company.
After a year with the US Foreign Service in Tokyo, Helen married Kenneth R. Ware in Lynn on October 25, 1970. They travelled throughout the US, living in several states along the way; Helen particularly liked time spent in Gig Harbor Washington, Steamboat Springs, CO and New York City. They settled in New Hampshire in the early seventies. For the next few decades, Helen enjoyed living in Bartlett, where she devoted time to school and community projects. In recent years, Helen loved to volunteer as a dining room server at the Gibson Center in North Conway.
Survivors include daughters Niqe of Northampton, MA and Lindsay of Keene, NH; brother Manny Kureta and his wife Barbara of Peabody, MA; sister Ruth Dylingowski and her husband Richard of Newburyport, MA and sister Lilyan Savory and her husband Doug of Lynn, MA; and cousin Virginia Rapo and her brother, Vasil Rapo of Southbridge, MA.
Arrangements were handled by the New Hampshire Cremation Society in Manchester. Memorial gifts in Helenâ€™s name may be sent to Jenâ€™s Friends Cancer Foundation, PO Box 1842, North Conway, NH 03860. A memorial service will be held in spring.
