Mrs. Warnock served in leadership positions in many county civic and professional organizations, including the Kershaw County Board of Realtors, Camden High Camband Club, Kershaw County YMCA, Kirkover Hills Garden Club, The United Way and the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County (which also included a starring role in an early production of The Rainmaker). She was also a member of First Baptist Church, Camden. 

She is survived by her sons, Todd Warnock (Kelly) of Camden, Mark Warnock (Annsley) of Columbia, Scott Warnock (Beth) of Camden; daughter, Harriett Tokar (Mike) of Red Bank; grandsons, Markus, Robert, William and Thomas Warnock; granddaughters, Lauren Henderson (Trent), Taylor McDonald (Chris), Madison Cothron (Will), McKenzie Warnock and Weslee West; and great-grandchildren, Jude, Ellie-Kate, Olivia and Liam.

She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Franklin “Bob” Warnock, her parents, Carl and Mary Cronan; and eight brothers and sisters; Lloyd, Ethel Mae, Paul, Eugene, Annette, Martha Jean, Harold and Jimmy. 

The family would like to thank her caregivers at Morningside of Camden and KershawHealth Hospice for the loving and compassionate care they provided to her that ensured her final days were filled with comfort and peace.
