Enola Rose Landry Warner Parrish, 86, of Beaumont, died Saturday, June 30, 2012, at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas, Beaumont. She was born in Orange, Texas, on August 22, 1925, to Ras and Willie Vason Landry. She spent her early years living between Beaumont and the Landry Ranch in Kerrville, Texas. She graduated from French High School as Valedictorian in 1942. Her college studies at Baylor University were interrupted when World War II started; the college buildings were needed to house soldiers. During the war years, she married her high school sweetheart, Russell Warner. They spent fifty-three years together until his death. Although she never completed her college studies, her charm, intelligence, and secretarial skills led to a long career as executive secretary to the president of First Security State Bank.
