Elease is very dear to the Warkentine family. She was a great friend who always supported through love and kindness. Elease and my MIL taught me how to play pinochle, such fun memories. We also loved our visits to the neighborhood Chubby's Mexican Restaurant.

It was fun to watch my MIL (Paula Perry) and her gal group of friends cut loose with travel, Single Home Evening, dinners, and card games.

Elease you will be missed by the Warkentine Clan!

I spent many years on Iowa Street, Salt Lake with Elease. What a wonderful family she had. We were very close to her family and I would babysit the Miller children. Elease always wanted to be involved in things as she was growing up and I see she carried that on with a life of service. I loved her and her family very much. May God Bless her as he embraces her with love. Judi
