In Loving Memory Of Kathleen Warner 1943 ~ 2024


Born June 23, 1943, to Anna (Branch) and Glover “Red” Blevins of Tigard, Oregon, Kathleen Ann (Blevins) Warner died Jan. 14, 2024, in Vancouver, Washington. 

Kathie grew up in Tigard with one sister, Sharon, graduating from Tigard High School in 1961. She married James Derald Warner of BZ Corner, Washington, in November of 1963, and they began their 54 years of married life in Vancouver, Washington. The family grew with children: Karen Warner, Ken (Lisa) Ayers, Joe (Jana) Warner, Jon Warner, Karleen McCourt, Shannon Day, Jeff Warner, Nikki (Joel) Evans and Taylor (Zack) Keeland. In addition, with their bounty of love and care, the family fostered numerous other children over the years. 

In the early 1970s, Kathie and Jim moved the family to a home outside Woodland, Washington, where they would become a part of the community for nearly 50 years. They were active in the Woodland Baptist Church. Kathie loved her home and family, her church, her flowers and music. She played piano and organ, both at home and for church, from childhood until she could no longer sit at the piano. 

Kathie’s husband, Jim, died in 2017, and Kathie moved first into Woodland, and then a couple of years later to Vancouver. She is survived by her sister, her nine children and 14 grandchildren. 

A memorial service for friends and family will be held at 11 a.m. March 2, at Woodland Baptist Church, 1808 Lewis River Road, Woodland, Washington.
