In Memoriam: Marian Ruth Warne

For those of you who had the pleasure of knowing my sweet mom, Marian Ruth Warne, you will remember how she lived her life dedicated to serving others. Born on June 23, 1937, she grew up in Santa Rosa, California. She traveled the world as a military spouse and during this time gave birth to two daughters, Joni Kenner and Linda Feehs. In the 1970’s, she was introduced to her Savior Jesus Christ through the kindhearted mentorship of a friend, and dedicated her life to pleasing Him and to spread His love and blessings to those around her.

She met Bob Warne in the 1980’s and they were married on July 1, 1987. Bob and Ruth discovered early that they loved to take to the road in their RV. They bought their first RV in 1989, a brand new Dolphin Micro Mini Class C, and enjoyed traveling in it as well as the additional four RVs that they also purchased.  They have traveled to Alaska, Canada, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington DC, New York, Maryland, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Colorado and Utah.

Ruth demonstrated Christ’s love by serving and sacrificing time and time again for her family, loved ones and friends. Whether it was making memories with her grandchildren, providing care to an elderly neighbor with no family in this country, or taking care of the needs of her family, she was always serving others. A memory that I will always hold dear is how she would cut out the middle of the watermelon, the sweetest and best part, and give it to my sister and me.

One of Ruth’s favorite Bible verses was “But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15. I can think of no better way to describe my mom. Service, sacrificial love, heartfelt compassion, and unwavering faith depict how she chose to live her life. To our sweet wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, until we see each other again, we will hold your memories dear to our hearts. We love you dearly.
