On June 20th, 2017, Anita “Ann” Warne passed away peacefully in her home from a long term illness, surrounded by her family.
She was born on August 13th, 1935 in Placentia, California. She was the 3rd of 7 siblings who all grew up in La Habra, California, raised by Baptist Missionary Beulah Simpson.
Ann married Richard E. Warne in 1968. She was a US Marine Corp wife for 49 years. Their first homewas in Modjeska Canyon, in Orange County. She was involved with the Modjeska Canyon women’s auxiliary Fire Department there and had many stories to tell about those days.
They moved to Coleman Canyon on the AV Ranch, in Jolon, California in 1979 before making their final move to the Lockwood area near her daughter Brenda. Ann valued faith and family, especially all her nephews, nieces, and grandchildren.
Ann was an avid seamstress that included embroidery; but one of her gifts was quilting. She had worked at Fort Hunter Liggett. Her last contract was with Computer Science Corp, as a technician working on many tanks and helicopters, performing highly technical wiring projects. Her highlight was when she was asked to work on the instrumentation of the AH -64D Apache helicopters in Fort Campbell, Kentucky. She originally started working with electronics for Philco Ford.
Ann is survived by her husband Richard “Dick” E. Warne; Lawrence A. Estrada (son) and Judy (daughter in law); Robert Estrada (son); Brenda Wolgamott (daughter) and Duane (son-in law); Anita Janine Estrada (daughter); Mike and Tom Warne (Stepsons); Grandchildren, Marin Wolgamott, Lorena and Rosalina Estrada, and Christina Estrada; and her brothers Vincent Longoria, Daniel Longoria, and Sister Raquel Redd.
