Simone Warner, 92, a resident of Menlo Park for 49 years, passed away in her home Feb. 15. Born in Billom, France, the daughter of a French diplomat, she was married to John Thomas Warner Sr. for 67 years. They met in Japan while John served in the U.S. Army during World War II.
The couple married in Japan, when the war ended, the couple moved to New Jersey and later to California. Simone was a devoted mother, wife & Grandmother, and a gracious and compassionate woman who loved culture, music, community and family.
Her humor and spirit coupled with her genuine warmth made those around her feel welcomed and comforted.
She was a devout parishioner at St. Raymond Church for 57 years.
We are deeply saddened that the beloved cornerstone of our family has departed, but grateful that she is at peace after a prolonged battle with Parkinson's disease.
She is survived by her devoted caregiver Lena Pulotu of Concord, daughter MaryRose Warner of Menlo Park, sons Edward Warner of Mi-Wuk Village, James Warner of Daily City, Thomas Warner of Menlo Park, four grandchildren and one great granddaughter.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 23, at noon at the St. Raymond Church, 1100 Santa Cruz Ave Menlo Park.
The family prefers memorial donations to the Parkinsonís Institute and Clinical Center: http://www.thepi.org/giving-to-the-institute/
