Obituary of Jean Borman
(March 7, 1944 - June 16, 2019)
Jean Borman was born March 7th, 1944 to Mary and Joseph Schneider. On the afternoon of June 16th, 2019 Jean passed away peacefully with family at her side.
Jean grew up on the farm near Rosalind, attending school, excelling in athletics, participating in clubs and being part of the farm and family. The lessons learned here and at the McTavish Business College provided Jean the tools, strength, and perseverance to start an amazing journey.
This incredible woman became the love of Eldon Borman. They married on August 12th, 1964. Together they built their farm. Working together was part of the incredible love they had for each other. Jean was never afraid of hard work or learning something new, she was a very strong woman, which was evident in every aspect of her life. Beyond her efforts in the dairy and grain operations, she regularly worked just as hard off the farm. In the last part of her career she was proud to be active in many capacities within St. Francis Xavier parish and St. Mary’s hospital.
Jean enjoyed family, friends, laughter and being active. She intertwined these into hers and Eldon’s life. Her strength, happiness and positive personality affected everyone involved in her life. Joy filled her whenever the grandchildren were around or shared their experiences.
She will always be lovingly remembered by her loving husband, Eldon; sons Craig (Sandra), Dave (Isleta); grandchildren Ryan, Dylan, Brynn, Aaron, and Amy; and sister Joan (John) Stang. She was predeceased by her parents; sister, Kay; brothers, Keith, Kenneth, and Jerry.
A Funeral Mass was held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, June 21, 2019 from the St. Francis Xavier Roman Catholic Church, 3605 - 50th Street Camrose with Father Joseph Jacobson as celebrant. Inurnment has taken place in the Camrose Valleyview Cemetery.
