How can one possibly give an adequate summary of the life of someone who has deeply impacted your world?
We can give you the facts about the events in the life of Lurline Williams Warren: She was born September 29, 1926, to a sheep rancher, George Williams and his wife Drucilla, in rural Louisiana; she met the first love of her life Ernest (Ernie) Sanford Warren, Jr, in Port Arthur, Texas and married him on February 7, 1947; she and Ernie made their home in Port Arthur where they raised their three daughters, Billie Sue (Lehman), Debbie (Marceaux), and Brenda Kay (Kirwin); after her daughters married and her husband Ernie passed away, Lurline lived alone for decades; but in her latter years, she was rescued from her lonely fortress by her shining knight, Fred Brown, with whom she had a very special bond.

But the wisest man in history, King Solomon, summed it up in his Proverb 31: “Strength and honor were her clothing…She opened her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue was the law of kindness.
She watched over the way of her household, and did not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed…Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
