Gainesville - Germaine Warmke died on August 7th at the age of 94 after a short illness.
Germaine received a BA in biology from the University of Maine and an MA in genetics from University of Rochester. For nineteen happy years, she and her husband, Harry, lived in Puerto Rico where he was the director of the Federal Experiment Station and she taught genetics and wrote Caribbean Seashells. In 1964, they moved to Gainesville, where Harry worked as a research professor and she worked in a research lab at Shands. After Harry's death, she moved to St. Augustine Beach, where she completed Exploring the Seashore, and her memoir, No Brief Candle.
She is survived by two children, Dennis and Julie, and three grandchildren, Laura, Jean Paul, and Jordan. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Have Hospice of Gainesville.
