Katie Lynn (Ware) Dials of Worthington, Ohio, formerly of Willard, age 35, died peacefully Tuesday, July 5, 2011. She was the beloved wife of Jason Dials with whom she just celebrated their fourteenth wedding anniversary. Born March 17, 1976, she was the daughter of her proud and loving parents Stan and Jolynn Ware. Katie loved so dearly her precious children, Abigail Lynn, Kennedy Eris and Isabelle Grace. Being a mother to these beautiful three girls was the joy in her life. Besides her husband, parents and children, she is survived by her sister Sarah Ware Swisher (her brother-in-law Brian and her niece and nephew Emily and Colin); her brother Andrew Ware; and her mother-and father-in-law, Hargus and Gracie Dials. She also leaves many other beloved family including brother-in-laws and their families, aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends. She is preceded in death by her grandparents Joe and Iris Joyce and Howard and Jane Ware. Katie will be forever cherished for her love for all those around her. It was so easy to talk to her and to laugh with her. Our darling wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend… you will be so sadly missed and forever in our hearts.
Friends may call at the Secor Funeral Home in Willard, Ohio on Friday, July 8, 2011 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

I was shocked to here the news of Katie’s passing. I remember Katie best from 5th to 12th grade, where we were still children but tried so hard to act like adults. All my first-time mischievous activities, I never experienced alone. Katie was right there with me. My first taste of alcohol came from her parents bar in the basement, my first cigarette stolen from Jolynn’s cigarette case; this list could go on and on but I don’t want to give away all our secrets. She was strong, fearless, funny, and a great friend. These are memories I reference more and more as my three daughters become adolescent, which has only enhanced my parenting skills. I guess, what I really want to say is…Thank you Katie, for being such a key part of my life and that it saddens me that it was so short. My heart goes out to the whole Ware and Dial’s families.
Oh my little Katie I am so sadden> ~ Words are so lost< my heart hurts............ Oh my lord give Stan Oh my heck and My sweet Jolynn the power to stay strong for Sarah & Andy and Katie girls oh my..... My love goes to all the Joyce Family.. I am remembering All Of my Times With All Of U .. My Heart Is Sadden, I love U Katie Auntie Clare XXOOXO

I remember nothing but good times at the Ware household as I was growing up. Katie was one of those friends that everyone should have. She never got mad and was an unconditional friend no matter what. I feel honored to have known her. Her wonderful qualities are not gone but will live forever in the lives of her precious girls. May the Lord give you strength and peace.
I don’t know what to say to any of you – what a sad day – Katie was always smiling – we never know what the Lord is planning for us – we have to cry smile and know he loves us and he loves Katie so her life is truly beginning in heaven –

So, sorry to hear of Katie’s passing. She was a very special person. No one so young should die. We will be keeping the Ware, Dials & Jason & daughters in our prayers. But, Katie is in a better place, she is a beautiful angel in heaven.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Ware and Dials families. We have many fond memories of Katie…..our daughter was born close to the time Abigail was born and I remember spending time in the “cry-room” at St. Francis with Katie. She was a truly wonderful person and a joy to be around.

Keep all of your treasured memories of Katie close to your heart and she will always be with all of you. The angels in heaven were singing as Katie touch OUR DEAR LORD’s hand as HE walked her through the gates of heaven. All of her loved ones were also there waiting with open arms for her. You will see her again. May God comfort you in the days of ahead. If there is anything that I can do for any of you please, please let me know as I will be here for you.
Stan & Jolynn, we are so sad to hear of your loss. Your entire family will be in our thoughts and our prayers.
Our family would like to convey our sympathy at the loss of your mother, wife, daughter and sister. Katie will truly be missed, and the world will be a more drab now that she is not in it. There is no one that could light up a room with her laughter, or her smile like Katie. She was loved by everyone who came in contact with her. And one glance would tell you what a wonderful mother she was to the lights of her life. My heart is breaking.

I was so saddened to hear of Katie’s passing. 20 yrs ago she was like a member of our family. Like all children, she grew up and moved away. I was always delighted to occasionally run into her and ‘catch up”. We are praying for the Dials and Ware families as well as Jason and the girls. God Bless each of you during this time of mourning.
Such a wonderful and vibrant life lost. We will always remember her smile and laughter. Keeping both families,Ware and Dials, Jason and girls in our thoughts and prayers.

I will always cherish the times when I would babysit for her when she was little and then she grew up to be such a loving and wonderful mother. Everytime I would see her she always had a warm happy smile and a kind and caring heart. She will be deeply missed by many. Much love, Andy and Cindy Thornton
