July 17, 1948 - September 23, 2019
MISHAWAKA - On September 23, 2019, our beloved sister, mother, and nana was called home. Carolyn Jean Ward was born on July 17, 1948, to Donald and Adeline (Ring) Hack, who both preceded her in death. On August 14, 1982, she married the love of her life, Dennis Ray Ward. He preceded her in death on July 4, 2012.
She is survived by her brothers, Jim (Jeanne) Hack of Dowagiac, Larry (Bonnie) Hack of Granger, and Jerry Hack of South Bend; a daughter, Jennifer (Brandon) Ludwig of South Bend and two grandchildren, Olivia and Brayden Ludwig.
Carolyn worked as a library associate at the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library for fifteen years. Carolyn enjoyed spending time outdoors in the garden and was a proud dog mom. Above all, she found the greatest joy in spending time with her family, especially her daughter, son-in-law, and beloved grandchildren. She spent her last days surrounded in love by her family.
