FORT WASHINGTON - Carol Eloise (Hummel) Tippett Ways, age 75, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, at her home in Fort Washington.
She was born on July 9, 1943, in Grantsville. Her parents, Harry W. Hummel and Rhoda R. (Shumaker) Hummel of Grantsville, predeceased her, as did her sister, Doris L. (Hummel) Cleveland of Bridgeport, W.Va.
Carol is survived by her husband, Franklin L. Ways, also of Fort Washington. Carol was the widow of Louis M. Tippett, who passed away in 2002.
Carol is survived also by her stepdaughter, Vickie (Tippett) Brosky and husband, Andy and son, Cade, all of Hughesville; and stepson, Gary Tippett and wife, Jill and children, Casey and Jacqueline, all of Leonardtown. Carol's immediate family includes her sister, Rita H. Crowe of Lonaconing; and brothers, John W. Hummel and wife, Judy of Urbana, Ill. and Duane W. Hummel and companion, Gayle Broadwater of Grantsville. Carol had many cousins, nieces and nephews and counted as most special her first nephew, Dean R. Otto and wife, Jennifer of Wheeling, W.Va.
She was a graduate of Northern Garrett County High School. She retired from her career as a Civil Servant in support of Navy operations, having worked at both the Patuxent Naval Base in Patuxent, and in Crystal City, Va., in support of Pentagon operations.
