Jill Ward

Angela Jill (Mayse) Ward, age 56, passed away at her home in Quitman, Texas on March 10, 2022.  Family and friends knew her by her middle name, Jill. 

Graveside Service is scheduled for Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at 2:00 PM, at Quitman City Cemetery with Brother Byron George officiating.  The family will welcome friends one-hour prior to the service, beginning at 1:00 PM, at Lowe-Gardner Funeral Home.

Jill was born on September 8, 1965 in Quitman to the late Wilfred Mayse and Joy (King) Hinton. Born and raised in Quitman, Jill was a 1984 graduate of Quitman High School.  While in school she played the flute in the “Quitman Proud Blue Band” and competed in track as well.  She remained in Quitman after graduation and married Mark Ward on May 20, 1989 at the First United Methodist Church in Quitman, where they were members. Together they had one beautiful daughter, Jacey.

Jill had many loves in her life.  She was very artistic and loved to spend time drawing and coloring various things and loving their cats.  She would often read and listen to music and enjoyed solving quizzes on KMOO.  Family and friends will always remember Jill as a sweet and gentle soul and a loving mother and wife.

In Heaven, she greets her mother, Joy Hinton; father, Wilfred Mayse; grandmother, Velmer Mayse; and grandfather, Rinard Poole.

Left to cherish her memory is her devoted husband of 32 years, Mark Ward of Quitman; one daughter, Jacey Ward of Tyler; one brother, Jeff Mayse of Glendale, California; sister-in-law, Lisa Via of Mt. Pleasant; mother-in-law, Pat Poole of Winnsboro; her loving cats; and many friends who will miss her dearly.

Serving as pallbearers are Tracy Nichols, Byron George, Tina Shaw, Rhonda Arrington, John Noe, and Sarah Hawthorne.

The family kindly asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in memory of Jill to the APET SPCA in Mineola, Texas, or the Hopkins County Animal Protection Leage, as certain plants and flowers may be harmful to their four-legged critters at home.
