    Agnes Darlene Warriner, 87, died Saturday evening, Aug. 23 at her home at 540 East 100 North in Moab.

    Mrs. Warriner was born May 4, 1921, near Rauville, S.D., to William and Effie Mitchell Hascall. She attended and graduated from Henry, S.D. high school and married Jesse E. Warriner in 1943. She and her husband operated a farm near Waverly, S.D., where they raised three children, Howard, currently of Garretson, S.D., Lila (Mrs. Robert) Ott, of Moab, and the late Darlene (Mrs. Spencer) Nesson of Huron, S.D.

    Mrs. Warriner spent much her adult life in food service in the Watertown, S.D., school system and was familiar to students throughout the system. She returned to Rauville with her husband in 1981, where they remained until her husband’s failing health necessitated a move to Huron in February, 2001.

    She took up residence at the Campus Apartments in Huron while her husband received care at the Huron Nursing Home before his death in December of 2001. She remained in Huron until the summer of 2007, when she moved to Moab to be closer to her daughter Lila. She became a regular helper at her daughter and son-in-law’s KOA campground south of town.

    Mrs. Warriner spent much time in her later active years researching her family’s geneology and became a certified member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of South Dakota. Toward that end, she and her husband traveled extensively, tracing her roots back to 1620 and before.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Jesse, her daughter Darlene in 2005, and a brother, Jim Hascall, of Paso Robles, Calif., in 2007.

    She is survived by her son Howard Warriner, daughter Lila Ott, brother Merle Hascall of Paso Robles, Calif., her son-in-law Spencer Nesson of Huron, S.D., three sisters-in-law, six grandchildren, one great granddaughter, several nieces and nephews and a string of dear friends from Watertown, SD, Huron, S.D. and her final home, Moab.

    A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Aug. 30 at 10 a.m. at Kimmerle-Hefner Funeral Home in Moab.
