Today, Warner is 72 and lives a peaceful life in Magalia.Recently recovering from chemotherapy treatments for lung cancer, she spent time June 21 with the Enterprise-Record, sharing her life story.
Warner's lifestyle in the eastern Congo would be considered sparse by most Americans.She taught young Africans to be teachers and along the way, Warner fell in love with the people and saw amazing animals and countryside.
She already knew she was a competent person.Growing up in Los Angeles, she was the youngest player on a semi-pro women's softball team and liked to fish and play the guitar.She worked her way through college and taught science at two junior high schools.
Life in Africa revealed other talents.Besides teaching, she was a butcher, a bricklayer, a veterinary technician.She was a chef and she baked bread.She played the guitar, played tennis and tended gardens.
But she also witnessed three different civil wars."We were frightened of one thing: The soldiers.They could be either kind or brutal.There were guerilla groups and people were terribly afraid," she said.
It seemed there was more to fear, though she didn't know it then.She had been exposed to several toxins and carcinogens in Africa.She was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 1992, breast cancer
Warner endured periodic evacuations from one part of Africa to another to escape civil war.She taught in a school in the abandoned perfume factory.
Teaching was in her blood, she said.Warner received bachelor's degrees in zoology and biology from Wheaton College in Illinois and a master's in counseling administration from UCLA.She went to Africa as a missionary and teacher with Conservative Baptist Foreign Mission Society.
She studied French for 15 months in Belgium prior to moving to Africa, since French is the official language in central Africa.She became fluent, and in Africa she studied Swahili.She can still speak both.
The last 16 years of her missionary service were spent at the Nyandkunde Medical Center in the Oriental Province of Congo.Her students were 18 to 24 years old, nearly all male.
Warner is not sure yet what she'll do with her scrapbooks."I'm thinking maybe an archivist should have them.It's a story that needs to be told," she said.
