Marjorie Lorraine Borman
On the morning of November 3, 2018, Marjorie Lorraine Borman (age 92) was granted her wish to be reunited in Heaven with her husband Harold. She is now at peace.
Marge was born on April 25, 1926 in Omaha, Nebraska. Her parents were Ruth Westervelt Stearns and Dorrance Taylor Stearns. She grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska graduating from Lincoln High School in 1944. Following WW-II she worked several years for the Pentagon in Washington, DC, before settling in Omaha, Nebraska. During the late 1940s and 1950s her employments included Strategic Air Command, North American Aviation and a private law firm in downtown Omaha.
Marge met Harold Borman, the love of her life, at First Presbyterian Church in Omaha during the 1950s through an adult group called Gateways, where they served as co-presidents for five years. They were married in the chapel at First Presbyterian Church on May 28, 1960. Although work and family commitments would take them from Omaha, the Gateways group provided the couple friendships that spanned their adult lives.
Marge and Harold lived in Dekalb, Illinois from 1960-1968. In 1968 they returned to Nebraska to make Lincoln their home for the next fifty years.
After the birth of their three daughters Marge was not employed outside the home. Her days were consumed with family, friends, church and volunteer activities. Marge volunteered for Lincoln Public Schools, served as a Girl Scout leader and remained active with the Girl Scouts for decades, taught Sunday School at church and was a vital member of St. Paul United Methodist Church. Blessed with the gift of selflessness, Marge tirelessly put other’s needs ahead of her own.
Marge was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years Harold Borman. Survivors include daughters Deborah (Jim) Ring, Patty (Andy) Bohart and Kathryn Borman, grandchildren Isaac Bohart, Sam Bohart, Cordelia Ring, Eliza Bohart and Karl Ring, and niece Dorothy (Kurt) Miller of Buena Vista, Colorado.
Funeral services are scheduled for Friday, November 9, 2018 at 10am at St. Paul United Methodist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Memorials to St. Paul United Methodist Church.
