Edith Marie Warner, 96, of Langley, Wash., passed away on April 20, 2019.
She was born to Swedish immigrants Carl H. Carlson and Valborg M. Carlson on July 9, 1922 in Seattle, Wash. Growing up near beautiful Green Lake in Seattle, Edith, who was an accomplished Latinist, graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1939.
After graduation, she worked as a telephone operator in Seattle and later, during World War II, as the civilian personal secretary for the commanding officer of an Army supply depot in Seattle.
Edith married the late Lyman Dennis Warner in 1945. Living first in the Wedgwood District in Seattle, they later moved to Los Gatos, Calif. She worked as an orthodontic assistant in nearby Campbell for many years, and served as Church Council Secretary of Faith Lutheran Church in Los Gatos. Retiring in 1979, Edith and her husband chose to return to their beloved Northwest and moved to Whidbey Island, where she was a member of the congregation of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Clinton.
Edith and Dennis enjoyed many days of local camping, especially at Fort Casey and Campbell Lake.
Edith is survived by her son, David Warner, of Langley, her sister-in-law, Patricia Carlson, of Lynnwood, her nephew, Eric Carlson, of Everett, and her niece, Diane Carlson, of Lynnwood. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Dennis, and her brother, Axel Carlson, of Lynnwood.
Edith will be remembered by many as a kind and generous lady with a great sense of style and class.
