Evelyn May (Lehnherr) Borthwick was born in Longmont, Colorado. She was the oldest child and only daughter of Ernest J. Lehnherr and Katherine L. (Perkins) Lehnherr. When she was 6 months old her parents moved to North Dakota. She attended school through the eighth grade in Rockford, North Dakota. She spent her freshman and sophomore years in a consolidated area nearby and then took correspondence courses.

She married Eugene J. Borthwick on May 26, 1942 in Warwick, North Dakota. They moved to Oregon shortly after their marriage and after a number of moves settled in Albany in 1959. After working several jobs and raising seven children, Evelyn retired from Stokely Van Camp.

She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and an active member of Catholic Daughters and the prayer shawl ministry until her later years. She was also a volunteer for Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers. Evelyn loved music and enjoyed gardening, baking, sewing and other crafts. She especially loved and enjoyed her family.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 69 years, Gene; by her five brothers (Harry, John, Elden, Marvin and Ivan); and her daughter-in-law Mary Linda Borthwick.

She is survived by her children Kathy (Jim) Hauth of Mt. Angel, Ralph (Qiaoling) Borthwick of Lebanon, Linda (Chris) Townsend, Teresa (Val) Hellman and Michael Borthwick all from Albany, Patty (Mike) Sheler of Lebanon and Eugene J. Borthwick Jr. (Julie) also of Albany, and 23 grandchildren and 35 great-grandchildren.
