I am sharing funeral cards on Friday, following a Facebook meme which you an see here.
Lillie Mae Warren was born in Paw Paw, Lee County, Illinois; her parents were Edward I. Warren and his wife Susan Foreman. The Warrens had migrated west from their home in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, where they resided at 1533 Penn Avenue, Beaver Falls, according to a city directory published in 1905.
The family was in Wexford County, Michigan by 1917, when E.I. Warren purchased land there. Lillie and her husband, Wellington Bruce Dunbar operated Ben Franklin stores in Cadillac, and later in Zion, Illinois where she passed away.
Lillie was Papa’s aunt, an older sibling of his father, William Warren.
