Lois Ann Warren, 92, Warsaw and previously a longtime resident of Silver Lake, passed away at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 13, 2021.
Born in South Bend April 14, 1929, Lois was one of four children. Her siblings, Arlinna Went, Ernest Dean Williams and Reita Fuson, all preceded her in passing, as did her parents, Phillip Ernest Williams and Ethel Viola (Moore) (Williams) Martin.
Lois had a servant’s heart and cared deeply for others. She was also independent, strong and occasionally stubborn. She rarely knew a stranger and was incredible at remembering names, taking a genuine interest in each person she met. She was sure to recognize the birthdays of those she loved most, making their cards by hand for many years. She was also an accomplished seamstress and quilter who loved to make receiving blankets which she often donated. Most of all, she loved the Lord and her family.
Lois was married to Roger V. Warren on April 14, 1960. The pair shared nearly forty-two years together before his passing in 2002. Those who survive with memories to cherish include her son, Barry Zimmerman of Enon, Ohio; five daughters: Carla (James) Hatfield of Greenback, Tenn.; Julie (Seth) Mikel of Etna Green; Kathy (Mark) Fisher of Cleveland, Tenn.; Rebecca (Frank) Meredith of Silver Lake; and Ramona (Tom) Engelberth of Edgerton, Ohio; and their families including 12 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren. Also surviving are her stepchildren, Dick (Pat) Warren and Roberta (Bob) Gregory, seven step-grandchildren and their families.
