  1. To all the Warfield family…..How saddened we were to read of your loss. Aileen was a dear family friend for many years and a wonderful lady. She was a close friend many years ago to Mark’s mother, Maribeth. When Yvonne would teach Junior Achievement classes, she would always donate candy treats for the children. And, Mark & Yvonne’s children at home never knew an Easter without a Nettie’s chocolate cross. Our Love & Prayers to you all during this very difficult time. Mark & Yvonne Klune

  2. We the Midboe family wish to express our deeepest sympathy. We will miss seeing Aileen sitting by us at sunday mass.
    Sincerely Bill and Rosanne Midboe

  3. To the Warfield Family,

    My love, thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. I received a call from Pueblo today telling me Aileen had passed away. I was saddened and shocked. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew her. I have known Aileen since I was a little girl hanging around the Mesa Junction. Our friendship started out from me buying candy as a kid, to working with her on numerous committees trying to make the Mesa Junction a better place. Aileen put her heart and soul into making that area what it is today. She gave of her time, energy, and love to the Mesa Junction … you can’t say the words “Mesa Junction” without thinking of Aileen Warfield. Ya know, when I moved to Sarasota, Aileen gave me a “Mesa Junction” mug filled with her yummy candies. She told me she wanted me to remember the Mesa Junction. Well… now when I drink from that mug, I will remember the wonderful woman who gave it to me. May you all be comforted by all of the wonderful memories and know just how very much she was loved.
    My love and prayers are with you all,

    Sincerely,

  4. Aunt Aileen was one of my favorite people. A very remarkable person, she was very kind, gentle,generous, smart, and positive. She always treated my kids and me like we were special. She never failed to send sweet treats (chocolate, of course) to Illinois for holidays, and “just because”. I enjoyed her company immensely and have fond memories of visiting at her family dinner table. I wish I could be there with the family…my love to you all.

  5. To the Warfield family,
    I’m deeply sorry for your loss. I always remember Mrs. Warfield watching us play basketball in high school, along with my parents. She was always very sweet to us and will be missed by many.

  6. I would like to let the family know how saddened I was to hear about Aileen. She was a wonderful person and I am lucky to have known her. God Bless

  7. I was so saddened to hear about Aileen. I always felt she was my second mother. I worked at Nettie’s throughout high school and college. Aileen was great about letting me work around my school schedule even during the busiest of times. She was a very smart business woman as well as a wonderful person to know. I seeked her advice many times.

    My thoughts are with the family. I will always be grateful to Aileen.
