August 8, 1914 ~ October 5, 2014
Betty Ruth Warnholz
She was born in St. Helena, California on August 8, 1914 and went to be with her Lord and Savior on October 5, 2014. Her parents, five sisters and one brother moved to Hermosa Beach when she was three years old. They struggled through the depression era and survived through their faith and sharing. She graduated from Redondo Union High School in 1932 and eventually so did her daughter and grandchildren. She married Irving Warnholz, who she met at the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Hermosa. They enjoyed traveling, camping and working together in their garage workshop.
After his passing, she continued to work with her hands preparing crafts for Vacation Bible Schools and Sunday Schools. For many years she baked and decorated cakes for weddings, birthdays and special occasions and made delicious apricot jam and peach preserves from her own trees. She enjoyed teaching a small group how to crochet and they made little hats for the preemie babies in the hospital. She was a beloved member of the Kings Harbor Church in Torrance and enjoyed greeting the people each Sunday as they arrived for services. Hosting dinners and having coffee and a goodie for any friend who happen to visit gave her much pleasure.
She never hesitated to share her faith in Jesus and praying for those she loved. She maintained a wonderful sense of humor, even to her last day.
Her family was very special to her. She is survived by her daughter, Irva Smith (Lyle, son-in law); three grandchildren, Gail Roberson (John), Robert Smith and Carol Lindbloom; seven great-grandchildren, Jeff Roberson (Sarah), Michelle Ellis (Noah), Jordan Roberson, Samantha and Brandon Smith, and Matthew and Michael Lindbloom; and four great - great grandchildren, Timnah, Jevin, Roman and Jackson. Celebration of her life will be at Kings Harbor Church in Torrance, Oct 19, Sunday at 2:00 pm.
