Edith entered the world on August 1, 1926 in Lost Springs, KS. She was the daughter of Henry and Pauline (Deines) Albright. She was one of seven siblings. She is a graduate of Herington High School. She was united in marriage to Harlow Warneke on August 10, 1944 in El Dorado. Her notes say they met in 1942 at the Herington Skating Rink when the lights were dim. They were blessed with 75 years together.
Edith was a homemaker and Harlow’s right hand. She worked at Duckwall’s in Marion and in the school system as a cook in later years. She was his partner and bookkeeper with their Carrier HVAC business, the Chief restaurant/club, first automated Car Wash in Marion, magnetic sign business, camper rentals/sales, the Cue poolroom, etc. Throughout the years, they flipped houses or tore down farm buildings to help in building their own homes. She loved refinishing furniture, being a mentor for family and friends, and helping her church, Our Savior Lutheran, for whatever needed to be done whether fixing food or asking for donations for something special.
She loved her family and cherished the times together. She was the best cook ever and always made those times memorable especially thru the food (fixing favorites). In later years, friends would gather at Harlow and Edith’s house because they always felt at home and would talk over the “good old days”. Many of the people who knew her thru the years or had just met her in the last couple years would say she was “a hoot”. She was always happy and sociable.
She is survived by her daughters, Pat (Carl) Elling of Tennessee and Gerry Lundy of McPherson; grandchildren Carl (Christine) Elling III and Jeremy (Lucy) Elling; great-grandchildren Victoria, Samantha, Allie, and Sarah Elling; brothers Gallard (Regina) Albright and Glenn (Waleah) Albright of Wichita; sister Mary Lee Peckenschneider of Wichita and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Harlow, daughter Connie Warneke, brothers Ed and Harold Albright, and sister Leona Manhart.
