GREENSBORO Peggy Ware, a resident of Well-Spring Retirement community, has died. She was 93 and had lived at Well-Spring for over 20 years. Peggy was a strong and independent woman of high intelligence and energy. She had many interests throughout her life, with gardening and birds being areas of interest since she moved to Well-Spring. Peggy was born in Connecticut and spent much of her life there and in New York City. From 1968 until her move to Well-Spring, she lived in Greenwich, Connecticut, where she was a member of the Representative Town Meeting (analogous to our city council). She established and ran her own public relations and advertising firm, Peggy Ware Associates. Before starting her own company, she was an executive in New York City with one of the country's largest public relations agencies. Earlier in her life, just after World War II, she worked for six years for the Army directing service clubs in Japan, Germany, and France. Peggy was a graduate of the University of Connecticut, where she majored in home economics. She also earned a master's degree from Columbia. In 1980, the University of Connecticut School of Home Economics and Family Studies honored her by awarding her a Distinguished Alumni Award for her work in the area of consumer services. She served as national Chairman of the Home Economists in Business and held numerous other offices in professional organizations. Peggy is survived only by her friends who cared for her tenderly in her recent period of ill health. Her friends wish to acknowledge the exceptional care given to Peggy by the nursing staff, social workers, and home health care staff of Well-Spring. There will be no local services or visitation. She wished to rest eternally in the columbarium at St. Peter's church in New York City. Services will be held there at a later date.
