Lois Anne Warden Obituary
LOIS ANNE WARDEN Lois Anne Warden passed away on Nov. 1, 2013 after a short illness. She was born Lois Anne Thompson on May 7, 1929 to Roy and Ora Thompson in Los Angeles CA. She is survived by her two brothers: older brother Richard Thompson (Marthe) of Rancho Palos Verdes CA and younger brother Havelock Thompson of Sebastian, FL. Lois is also survived by her three sons: Craig (Morgana) of Davis CA, Bruce (Rosalie) of South Lake Tahoe, and Robert (Eunice) of Moreno Valley. She is also survived by twelve grandchildren (Joseph, Elisa, Shari, Scott, Juliet, Elizabeth, Isabella, Samuel, Ryan, Matthew, Branda and BeverlyAnn) and four great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by husband M. Robert Warden and granddaughter Rachelle. She and her late husband met at summer school at the University of Colorado Boulder in 1949. They were married on July 2, 1950. Their marriage lasted until his death April 3, 2013. Lois was an outstanding lab technician for Shell Oil for about a year until she became pregnant with Craig. She was a mother and housewife for the remainder of her life. She had an excellent sense of humor, was intensely involved in raising her sons, explored weaving and making cards with dried flowers. Lois particularly loved her flowers and garden. She also became an excellent potter until back pains forced her to quit. Lois was interested in the natural world. Just this year Lois volunteered to participate when Craig began a genealogy and health project by sending her DNA to 23andme. She learned that she was 0.3% Mbuti Pygmy and 0.3% Ashkenazi. Her genetic information will live on, providing useful health and ancestry insights for her brothers, sons, nephews, nieces and all future generations. Relatives should contact Craig for disease related information. Services will be at the Arlington Mortuary in Riverside at 11 AM on Monday, Nov. 18. The funeral will be at the Riverside National Cemetery at 1 PM on Monday Nov 18. Arlington Mortuary, Directors (800) 275-4648 www.arlingtonmortuary.com
