Vera Irene Henrich was the daughter of Henry M. Henrich (1864–1922) and Emma Otto (1863–1900). She was born in New Hamburg, Ontario on September 8, 1893.

She married Ralph Ira Warner  in Windsor, Ontario on July 30, 1914. He was her first cousin on her mother’s side, the son of her aunt, Anna Elizabeth Otto.

Although Ralph and Vera both lived in Michigan, they crossed the river to Windsor to get married. Vera was pregnant but Michigan law did not permit first cousins to marry. Ontario law did.

Vera died in Detroit on December 30, 1939, at the age of 46, and was buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Detroit. You can visit her grave (virtually) here.
