To the entire Borman Family~ what can a person say~Judy put the "Shine" in "SUNSHINE" she was a fantastic person and caring and had a smile that could light up the room. We will miss her terribly. She will be missed by her entire family at Wells as well. May God Bless you all at this very sad time. Lets remember Judy with the larger than life smile she had and made everyone around her feel loved and cared for. Lisa D

To all of Judy's Family, It is with a heavy heart we face this day. My deepest sympathy & caring compassion for all of you in this great loss of a gracious lady. I spent many work day years at with Judy at Wells Fargo. A group of us are grateful we had a 'celebration of friendship' gathering at the Olive Garden a month ago with her. That dinner gathering truly 'fed our souls'!! If anyone needed a little extra kindness in their day, you'd need only step up to Judy's teller window...or sneak back to the lunchroom for her yummy banana bread! I think if you looked up the word 'kindness' in the dictionary', you'd see Judy's name. Her life was of loving & nurturing her family & friends & teaching us all to say, "I love you", more often. Each of us have reasons to remember her-her cute, tiny giggle & grin, her unlimited sewing & baking talents & projects...her presence in our lives is a gift we'll treasure. Quite simply, she's unforgettable! Perhaps a fitting tribute would be for all of us saying our goodbyes to Judy today, would be to commit 'random acts of kindnesses' tomorrow. With God's grace, may your darkest grieving days always be outshined by the loving, happy years you have had with your beloved Judy. With healing prayers, Mary & Chuck Morris

What a wonderful, thoughtful, loving and giving person. In our family Judy was known for her cookies, especially the chocolate chip. She always had a little package of them for us to take home.
I met Judy when our children got married. My daughter had a very special mother-in-law and I had a very special friend.
Gerry, what an example you set in carrying out the wedding vows-for better or worse in sickness and in health. Judy could not have had better care.
She will be greatly missed. My love and prayers to all of you.

Our time here on earth is measured not by the length-but the width. Judy made it burst at the seams. Friends and family recall happier times when she'd be hostessing/ working events and while pouring another cup of coffee she'd offer up her latest baked goods (oh those snicker doodle bars!) and flash that beautiful smile. We were lucky to have her, proud to have known her, and share our grief. I will miss her more than tongue can tell.

Gerry and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Judy was such a joy to be around and always had a kind word and smile for everyone. I will always feel blessed to have seen her at Julie's wedding and to have been able to tell her how much she meant to me and what an incredible woman she was. She will be missed but remembered with love and will continue to live on in the hearts of all that had the pleasure of knowing her. She resides with the Angels. God Bless.
