Ms. Felita Eulette Ware, affectionately known as “LeeLee” was born on July 3, 1970, in Roanoke, Alabama to the late Ernest S. Bell, Jr. and the late Jo Francis Ware. Educated in the Roanoke City Schools System, she is a 1988 graduate of Handley High School, where she was an active member in the marching band and many other student organizations. After high school, served honorably in the U.S. Army, achieving the rank of Specialist (E-4). Felita is a veteran of the Gulf War, serving in Operation Desert Storm. She also attended South University.
At an early age she confessed her life to Christ at First Baptist Church and lived her life for Christ thereafter. She shared her faith in the Lord and her love for the Lord with everyone. She was an active and faithful member of New Life Worship Center, where she also served as the Secretary of Christian Education Empowerment, armor bearer to First Lady Juanita Wright, and was the lead of the hospitality committee.
On Saturday afternoon, August 28, 2021, a loving sister, aunt and friend answered the Master’s call peacefully.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory a large and loving family, including her sister Rhonda of Roanoke, AL; her brother Gregory of Morgan, GA; two close cousins raised as brothers: Dewayne (Tracy) Winston of San Antonio, Texas and Thelvie (Carla) Winston of Stockbridge, GA and another “brother-in-love” Michal Garvin of Guyton, GA. A host of nieces and nephews, including Corrie Winston of Roanoke, AL; Marcus of Washington, DC and Marqueta (James) Wright and Sereathan Johnson of Roanoke, AL; Anthony (Serina) Garvin, Alex Garvin, Adam Whitaker, Akira Garvin and Keerstin Whitaker, all of Guyton, GA, and niece Selebrity of Savannah, GA. Preceding her in death was a very special aunt, Helen Ware Winston, who raised her as one of her own. She was married to Willie Whitaker for 10 years and still counted him a friend until her death. She also leaves in memory a number of great nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
Felita’s dedication to her family and community was seen and felt everyday of her life. She was a God fearing, loving, caring, and compassionate woman who took pride in helping others and serving the Lord. She was highly favored, and that “Favor” resonated through tremendous blessings showered among a huge family mourning this loss of a remarkable human being. We will miss her tremendously but know she is resting in the beautiful arms of God.
