The Jewish Daily Bulletin has already commented editorially on the death of a truly noble woman, Mrs. Benjamin Warner, mother of the motion picture producers, the four Warner brothers.

Here we want to add just a word about the charitable activities of Mrs. Warner which have insured her a golden memory beyond the circle of her sorrowing family. Her philanthropic interests were diversified, but nearest to her heart was the Warner Memorial Hospital on the grounds of the Los Angeles Sanatorium at Duarte, California. This hospital, devoted to the care of tuberculosis victims, enjoyed the constant interest and care of Mrs. Warner and her entire family. Just as to the hospital, so Mrs. Warner also gave to the Sanatorium itself her unstinted interest and help, and it was largely due to her activities that the sanatorium, which twenty years ago started with a mere tent, has now expanded to forty-three buildings on twenty acres of terraced and landscaped gardens.

Mrs. Rose Warner Charnas, a daughter of Mrs. Benjamin Warner, has been for several years the president of the Milk and Egg League of New York City, which furnishes to the New York patients at the Sanatorium all the milk and eggs necessary for them. Under Mrs. Charnas’ leadership this organization has become one of the most outstanding charitable groups in New York City.

In maintaining thus the fine traditions of kindness and philanthropy for which Mrs. Benjamin Warner was known throughout the country, her family pay her the highest tribute and keep her spirit alive as a constant blessing for the poor and ailing.
