Elizabeth “Betty” A. Warner, 64, a resident of St. Johnsville Nursing Home, St. Johnsville, New York, passed away early Monday morning, December 5, 1022 at the home.
Betty was born on November 8, 1958 in Gloversville, New York and was the daughter of Franklin E. Warner Sr. and Ruth (Seelow) Sowle. She graduated from Tribes Hill Central School.
Betty grew up in the Mayfield area and was the oldest of eight children. She was the center of the family and anyone who met Betty fell in love with her. She had such a contagious smile and warm hugs. Betty may not have remembered your name but she never forgot a face and you were always her friend.
Some of Betty’s favorite things were listening to country music (especially Johnny Cash), dancing, singing and Thursday night spaghetti dinners. She loved shopping for dresses, getting dressed up and getting her nails done. She enjoyed spring time and coloring Easter eggs, watching the flowers bloom and sitting on the porch watching birds. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
She is survived by her loving siblings Laurie (Peter) Neri of Altamont, Franklin Warner Jr. of Mayfield, Joan Sowle (Mark Marvel) of Sprakers, Tracy Rowback of Mayfield, Julia (Michael) VanNostrand of Mayfield, Nora Albertin of Mayfield and Danielle Walter of Clifton Park; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and extended family members.
Betty is predeceased by her parents, Franklin Warner, Sr., Ruth (Seelow) Sowle and her step-father, Edward Sowle.
Services will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at 4 p.m. at the Mayfield Central Presbyterian Church, 22 N. Main St. Mayfield, New York 12117 with Dr. Rev. Bonnie Orth officiating. Family and friends welcome to a calling hour from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. prior to the service. A spring interment will be at the Mayfield Union Rural Cemetery where she will be laid to rest with her parents.

"You Are My Sunshine"
You Are My Sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.
