In Loving Memory of Nolene Elena Borge
NOLENE ELENA BORGE, age 74, passed away peacefully at her home in bed February 5, 2021 due to a heroic battle with cancer. She was born May 1, 1946 in La Porte, Indiana to William and Virginia Werner. She married Eric Borge June 15, 1974 after they met on the island of Kauai, Hawaii and fell in love.
Nolene was a dedicated wife and mother who cherished every moment with her boys. To them she was the best mom, strong and fun to be with. To her husband, Eric, she was his rock and stability in life. She especially loved her role as Gma (grandmother). Nolene loved people. She was gregarious and full of life always making people around her laugh. She truly was the life of the party. She made friends easily and everywhere she went. Her employers, coworkers and customers loved her. She was a hard worker excelling at her job culminating as a loan closer/marketer for various mortgage title companies spending countless hours on the road traveling from closing to closing. Her love didn't end there though. She loved cooking and cleaning house. Nothing was ever out of place. Her home was always spotless. Oh, and she loved margaritas too. Man did she love margaritas.
After Nolene retired, she found her calling in home health care. She became so proficient at it that many families wanted her as a health care provider for their parents. There was no slowing Nolene down. She loved to help people and was considered part of the family for those she helped. To this day, many of her clients consider her a dear friend.
Nolene was passionate about her faith as well having led her best friend, in New Hampshire, to the Lord. Nolene was active in her church as well having started a bread ministry for all first time visitors. Nolene even baked her own bread for this ministry. She also taught her two sons Christian songs and bible verses from a tender age instilling in them Christian values. Nolene also was adamant about speaking to her grand-children, whom she loved very much, about Jesus.
Nolene is survived by her husband Eric Borge, her two sons and their wives Eric and Brenda Borge and Joshua and April Borge; grandchildren, Abigayle Borge, Eric Christopher Borge II, Amelliah Borge, Ethan Borge, Arabella Borge and Mason Borge plus one great grandson Eric Christopher Borge III. Nolene is also survived by her sister Diana Schlinke and her brother and his wife Michael and Donna Werner.
Nolene has stated that she does not want a church service. She did however state that she would be ok with a small service at the gravesite for a few family and friends, limited to 20, due to COVID-19. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, Nolene requested donations be made to her missionary friends, Juan and Amy Vallejo, in Brazil.
