Loving sister of Raymond Riseberg and his wife June, the late Robert Riseberg, and the late Gladys Melamed. Byla Borr spent her earliest years in Waltham and Newton. She served as both a buyer and a saleswoman with Riseberg's of Waltham, investing her time and energy into her family's business. In May of 1956, she married businessman Howard Borr.
