Wife of Alfred Warner.

Mother of five children.

Mrs. Warner was very active in her community. Throughout her life she was able to accomplish many things, some of which follows:

In 1889 she helped organize the Wilmington New Century Club and became chairman of the education committee which helped to get kindergarten programs, school lunch programs, carpentry shops, home economics, libraries, and penny savings banks established in Wilmington schools.

In 1911 Delaware was the only state not to have a college for women. She worked hard to get funding for the Women's College which is now the University of Delaware. She then became the first woman to be named to the Board of Trustees of the University of Delaware in 1927.

She was associated with issues related to women's education. She helped organize the Delaware Branch of the League of Women Voters and became president of this group in 1924.

She was president of the Delaware Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (S.P.C.A.) for 21 years.

Warner Junior High School, Wilmington, Delaware was named for her in her honor.
