FLORENCE – Warren E. Herbert, age 85, died at home with his family on Wednesday, April 2, 2014, in Florence. A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. April 12 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 5125 U.S. Highway 93 S., Florence. Warren was born on March 8, 1929, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Roland and Catherine Herbert. He was the oldest of five children. As the oldest, he took responsibility for some of the care of his younger brother and three sisters. As he grew up, he enjoyed playing baseball, sailing, golf and playing the piano. Warren married Carol Scholl on March 16, 1951. He graduated from Ohio College of Podiatry. He went on to work for Wesley Jessen Contact Lens company, setting up an office first in Ohio, and then made the move to New Jersey, where he was regional manager for offices on the East Coast. Warren then quit his fulltime work at the age of 43, and he and Carol moved from New Jersey to Marysville, Ohio, where they assisted a small congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. There he enjoyed volunteering his time as a full-time minister of Jehovah’s Witnesses for about six years. In 1979, Warren and Carol moved to Lolo to be close to their children and grandchildren. Warren devoted much of his time and life to assisting others to learn about the Bible truths that he viewed as precious. He was known as someone who knew his Bible well and used it effectively to teach and comfort others. Warren also enjoyed faceting gemstones, water color painting, astronomy and traveling with his wife, Carol, to places throughout the western United States. They especially liked the Oregon Coast, Glacier Park and walking with their dog in the Lee Metcalf Refuge. They enjoyed travel, taking trips to England, Israel, Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico. He enjoyed playing the piano and music was always something he and Carol enjoyed doing together. Warren has always been known for his appreciation for life, the beauty of the creation around him and being generous with his time in helping others. Those who knew him knew he had a fondness for sweets, particularly apple and cherry pie, chocolate chip cookies, and liked to eat his carrots in carrot cake. Warren and his family appreciated the help and care for both him and his wife, Carol, provided by the staff of Aspen Hospice. The women who came to help showed personal interest, compassion, concern, and a sense of humor. Warren was preceded in death by his wife Carol of 62 years; brother Russ Herbert and sister Karen Lime. He is survived by his sisters, Denise Mraz of Ohio and Lois Staresina of Indiana; son Mark Herbert and wife Chris; daughter Gayle Scott and husband Bruce; four grandsons, Jamie Herbert and wife Cassie, Ryan Scott, Evan Scott and Jesse Scott along with his wife Jill, and his great-grandsons Jaegar and Jaston.

My wife, Cookie, and I send our thoughts and prayers to the family of Warren.

Warren was a very special person. He taught me many things. It was a joy to be in his presence. He will be missed, but it is so comforting to know that he is in the memory of his God, Jehovah.

From Gregory & Cookie Hanson, Asheville, NC.

My sympathies to the family, fleshly and spiritual. Warren was such a fine man and so dedicated to Jehovah. He was a grand example for everyone who knew him. How happy he and we will all be when Jesus calls and Warren answers. Now the rest of us have to continue to work hard so we can be there to greet him. Love to all

Dear Mark & Chris, Gayle & Bruce and families,
Your Dad/Grand-dad/Great Grand-dad was a friend of all who met him. I was so blessed and enriched to have been able to share a portion of my life in the Bitterroot with this extraordinary human. Both Warren & Carol made lasting and good impressions on Laure and me, and certainly all they contacted. Consolation is in our knowledge that neither suffer and they have endured to the end. Now we must follow. Lots of condolences, hugs and love from your friend and fellow servant. Joe Niemann

A very good brother and a very good disciple! I am so grateful that he used Jehovah's words to 'touch' my heart and to bring me in! I was hoping to get to see all of you one day soon, but I guess that I will have to wait just a little longer to see Warren and Carol again! I hope and pray for the day that we all will be reunited in paradise! Lets all keep up the good work until that day! May Jehovah continue to bless all of you! Your brother, Ken

We wish we could be there at this very difficult time. Distance is a terrible thing when people you know and love are at a loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. We look forward to the time, when very shortly, Jehovah will remove all causes of pain and suffering and death. We look forward to seeing that together. Until then a dear friend will be very missed.

Warren and Carol both meant so much to me. They were such kind and loving people and made the lives they touched better.

I loved Warren's quiet, subtle, sense of humor. I still laugh when I think about going out in service with him and listening to him sing "Why Can't a Woman Be More Like a Man" while he drove. And I will never forget the story he told me about burying Twinkies in the back yard to ensure that he could still eat them in the new system.

The next time he opens his eyes he will be in the paradise surrounded by his family. He will be greatly missed as we wait for that time.
