LU Community Mourns Loss of Dorothy DuQuoin Warner

July 17, 2008

Lindenwood University is mourning the passing of longtime supporter, board member and alumna Dorothy DuQuoin Warner, 93, who died on July 14 at her home in New Hampshire.

A funeral and memorial service is planned for Tuesday, July 22, in Clinton, Ill., where she will be interred next to her husband, John Warner III, who died in 1984.

A 1936 graduate of Lindenwood, Ms. Warner served on the Board of Directors at the school for more than 20 years, and after her retirement from the board in 1992 she was given the title Director Emeritus.

She also served on the school’s Alumni Board and was the recipient of many honors and awards commemorating her service to the school, including the Alumni Merit Award in 1977, the Sibley Medallion of Honor in 1991 and an honorary doctorate in 1993.

Ms. Warner’s generosity to her alma mater was well known. She was a founding member of Lindenwood’s Butler Society and funded renovations to the indoor swimming pool in Butler Hall, which is named in her honor, and the chapel in Sibley Hall, which was built in 1856 and is the oldest building on campus.

At the time of her death, plans were in progress to dedicate the Education Division’s office building as Warner Hall in her honor in October. The ceremony is scheduled to take place as planned.

During her time as a student at Lindenwood, Ms. Warner was known for her love of music, which she maintained throughout her life. She studied French at the school as well and remained fluent in the language throughout her life.

“No one has ever been more devoted to Lindenwood than Dorothy was,” said James Evans, Ph.D., president of Lindenwood University. “We will miss her greatly.”
