On a personal note from daughter Hattie Borg: “My mom is someone always willing and wanting to help. She constantly is going above and beyond and will do anything to simply make someone smile. She is the most kind-hearted person I know and is consistently doing things for others. Not a lot of people know about her sense of adventure, as she loves to explore the out doors and "rough it". She loves being outside whether she's backpacking on a new trail or just in her garden planting the fruit or vegetable of the season. She's also one of the most incredibly talented people I have ever met. She can draw, build, bake, craft, plant, and create anything. Her work bench (which she built herself) has her latest project on it right now! My mom never ceases to amaze me. Her kind spirit and love for life are truly an inspiration.”
