Blanche Anne Warn, 93, longtime resident of Green River, passed away on Nov. 3, 2014, four days short of her 94th birthday.

She had been living in Grants Pass, Ore., since 1996 to be near her daughter moving there after the death of her husband Clarence Warn in June of 1990.

Warn was born to Harvey and Deniege (Remily) Pommier on Nov. 7, 1920, in Currie, Minn., and attended the Catholic school there. Blanche and Clarence were married July 16, 1938, and moved to Green River in 1942 where Clarence worked as a lineman on the U. P. Railroad. It was here that they raised their two children.

Over the years, Warn had been employed several places in Green River, and also sold

RNA Insurance where she was awarded for her sales achievements. She served her community in many organizations including Red Cross, Chamber of Commerce and Woman's Club, receiving the woman of the year award in 1977 and the Diana Award in 1978. She was also a lifelong Catholic and member of the Altar Society.

After moving to Oregon, she lived in the Riviera Mobile Court where she remained active in many activities and events there. She liked to cook, read, shop and spend time with her family, but above all she loved to play cards. The last 18 months she lived with her daughter and son-in-law due to declining health.

Warn was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, her parents, two half sisters, one brother and two sisters.

She is survived by her two children, Juleen (Lloyd) Logan of Grants Pass, Ore. and Glen (Karen) Warn II of North Bend, Wash., three grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters

Maxine Buyck of Tracy, Minn., Gleva Ommen of Rock Island, Ill., and Janice Hoyt of San Antonio, Texas.; and one brother, Bernal Pommier of Isle, Minn.
