Lilo Warriner of Elk, Washington passed away on Saturday September 15, 2018 at Royal Park Health in Spokane, Washington. She was 81 years old.

Lilo was born Liselotte Fleck to Wilhelm and Elsa Fleck on July 3, 1937 and was raised in Babenhausen Germany. She met her husband Thomas Warriner while he was stationed in her home town serving in the US Army. They were married July 2, 1955 and shortly thereafter moved to Elk, Washington to be close to Tom’s family. They helped with the family’s dairy farm while Tom built her a house to start their own family.

In 1962, Tom was hired by the Boeing Company and moved his growing family to the coast. They settled in Renton, Washington where Lilo studied to become a Naturalized Citizen. She received her Citizenship in 1963. Lilo worked for the A&H Drug Store as a clerk for 25 years and retired at the birth of her first grandchild.

Lilo and Tom returned to Elk in 1996 upon Tom’s retirement from Boeing. They lived in the house that Tom built for her as newlyweds.

Lilo is survived by Thomas Warriner, her husband of 63 years; her 3 children and their spouses, Linda (John) Lapointe, Leon (Pamela) Warriner, and Leslie (Rick) Greenquist; her three grandchildren and their spouses Nona (David) Davenport, Jessica (Lance) Hitchcock, and Cassandra (Kelson) Smith; and her three great grandchildren Samantha, Ruby and Hosea Davenport; and her sister Karin (Ike) Gomez and brother Hans Jurgen (Alice) Fleck and their families.

Lilo resided at Royal Park Health in Spokane for the three years prior to her passing. Her family is grateful for the excellent care they provided her during her extended illness.
