Quietly and fearlessly, you continued to endure, bringing so much love and happiness into the lives of your children. Outwardly you have always been a beautiful woman but your true beauty is seen in the concern for all who you know, especially your children. We have known from our earliest memories that we were your greatest possession and you have timelessly sacrificed all for us. This beauty was not only seen in your eyes, and countenance, but felt in the warmth of your presence. Through the years our memories of home will never be a place, but will be a beautiful safe and warm feeling. A feeling of your selfless, devoted love. Our love always, your family. Surviving are her five children, Mike (Glenda) Borgstrom, Layton; Randy (LouAnn) Borgstrom, South Weber; Kevin (Linda) Borgstrom, Bullhead, AZ; Jeanne (Doug) Hansen, Heber; Sheila Borgstrom, Riverdale; 15 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren; one sister LaDawna Triptow, Salt Lake City and two more great grandchildren on the way.
