Services for Lucy Ann K. Warner, 100, who moved from Brooklyn to Buffalo last October, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday in St. Philip's Episcopal Church, 15 Fernhill Ave.

Mrs. Warner, who was born in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and moved to New York City when she was 12, died Tuesday (Jan. 30, 1990) in the Episcopal Church Home after a short illness.

She became ill after moving to Buffalo to be with her daughter, Evelyn Johnson, who has lived here for 50 years.

In 1908, Mrs. Warner married the late Reginald Warner, the first black movie projectionist in New York City. For many years, she and her husband were known for giving elegant theater parties in the Renaissance Theatre in Harlem. Her husband died 17 years ago.

In addition to her daughter, survivors include three grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren, and seven great-great-grandchildren.
