Mrs. Ward passed away Sunday at the Kemp Care Center in Kemp. She was born September 9, 1932 in Anderson County to Rodney Poyner Broughton and Eula Durnell Broughton. First and foremost, she loved the Lord and was strong in her faith. Her children Cheri and Denise were her pride and joy, which was known by all who knew her. She had many God given gifts, which included singing professionally and personally, playing the piano, painting, and writing poetry. Nothing pleased her more than cooking for family and friends. She was a member of Days Chapel Baptist Church in Elkhart.
Mrs. Ward was preceded in death by her parents and her husband William (Bill) Ward. She is survived by her daughters, Denise Green of Tool, TX., and Cheri Ziegler of Houston, TX., a sister, Daphne Piper of Longview, and numerous nieces and one nephew.
