winnie-warner-photoWinifred L. “Winnie” Warner, a longtime Moscow resident, died Thursday, November 3, 2016 at Good Samaritan Moscow Village. She was 96.

She was born November 27, 1919 in Dayton, Ohio to Harry and Beryl Irwin Loeb.  She attended school in Dayton, graduating from Fairview High School.  She received a degree from Miami Jacobs Business College.

After a brief career in the business world, she married Richard E. Warner on July 3, 1943 in Dayton.  They moved to Moscow in the late 1960’s when Richard accepted a position as a Mechanical Engineering Professor at the University of Idaho. Winnie was a long time member, and past president of Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary.  She also was a member of Chapter O, P.E.O. and her church affiliation was the First United Methodist Church.  She enjoyed golf, playing bridge, travel, and spending time with good friends.

Richard passed away in March of 1997. Marcia Duckworth, her sister in law, also preceded her in death; Marcia and Winnie felt like sisters.  She is survived by a number special nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

At Winnie’s request, there will be no formal service. She will be placed next to her husband of 54 years, Richard, at the Moscow Cemetery.

The family suggests memorials be made to Gritman Medical Center Auxiliary or to the charity of the donor’s choice.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Short’s Funeral Chapel, Moscow, and online condolences may be sent to

    Winnie (and Rich) were long-time friends of my parents, Merrill and Lillian Green. Both were wonderful people and I miss them terribly.
