Bliss Gilmore Notice

Bliss Gilmore Warner, age 67, of Yardley, Pennsylvania, passed away on June 19, 2016 at Penn Hospice / Rittenhouse after a courageous battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife of William Stone Warner Jr. of Yardley, Pennsylvania. Bliss, known to most of her friends and family as "Candy", was born in Baltimore on February 4, 1949, and grew up in Guilford. She was the daughter of the late William Epperson Gilmore and Marjorie Young Gilmore. She was a graduate of The Calvert School, The Garrison Forest School, Sweet Briar College and Loyola College. Candy worked for many years in the financial world, both for T.Rowe Price in Baltimore, Jackson Weeks in Bernardsville, NJ and R.J.Walls in Princeton, NJ. She finished working for Wells Fargo Bank in Newtown, Pennsylvania in 2007, so that she could devote her time watching her son play college lacrosse and spend more time with her daughter, and her grand-dog. Besides her husband she leaves a daughter, Ashley Warner McGarrity of Philadelphia, PA, and a son, William Gilmore Warner of Mays Chapel, Maryland, and a grandson, William Duke Warner. Candy also leaves behind her sisters Eleanor Massie of Baltimore, Md and Tobey Shaw of Greenwich, CT and several nephews and nieces. And, of course her beloved Grand Dog, Kujoe . Candy was an incredible person who loved supporting her two children. She was actively involved in helping to lead the McDaniel Lacrosse Tailgates and in training her grand-dog. She was also able to see the birth of her grandson in December of 2015. She showed great courage in battling a stage four diagnosis of Neuroendocrine / Carcinoid Cancer since 2013. A funeral service will be held on July 7, 2016 in Baltimore at the Church of the Redeemer at 2pm. A special thank you to the wonderful staff at Penn Hospice who were able to allow her to pass peacefully and finally be a rest from battling her cancer. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the Philly Nets web page. There is a link near a section called "Candy's Corner". It is the web site for Carciniod Cancer.
