Lexington Resident: Elizabeth Warner (1922-2016)
Elizabeth “Liz” Warner, 93, of Lexington, Nebraska, passed away Monday, May 30th, 2016, at CHI Good Samaritan-Kearney.
She was born September 24th, 1922, in Lincoln, Nebraska, to John and Charlotte (Sinner) Reinhardt. She was the sixth of ten children. Farm work brought the Reinhardt family to Lexington where Liz graduated from Lexington High School with the class of 1942.
On March 4th, 1945, Liz married Ross Warner at the First Presbyterian Church in Lexington. They were blessed with three children, Linda, Pamela, and Charles.
Throughout her life, Liz worked at several jobs, but was very proud of the many years she worked at Plum Creek Medical Group as a medical transcriptionist. She began in 1963, and worked 41 years until retiring in 2004.
Liz was an active member of First Presbyterian Church for 78 years. She served as an Elder, Deacon, Clerk of Session, Sunday school teacher, officer of Presbyterian women, church photographer, and ever cheerful volunteer.
Spending time with her family and friends brought Liz her greatest joy! She loved traveling with her kids, having tea parties with her great-grandchildren, playing dominos, and cards at Shackley. She also loved making pretzels and noodles at the Grand Generation Center, quilting, and dancing. Oh how she loved to polka! Her “Love of Life” will always be remembered!
