Edwina Craddock Borden, 92, died Sunday morning, Feb. 10, 2013, at Baptist Northeast Hospital in LaGrange.
The Guest Book is expired.
A native of Cub Run, she was the daughter of Lon and Pearl Doyle Craddock.
"In her final weeks and months, Edwina, our mother, liked to talk about the hard times she shared with her brothers and sisters growing up during the Great Depression, and the many nieces and nephews she has scattered throughout Kentucky and surround-ing states. Without mentioning any by name, lest we would unintentionally omit several she would want mentioned, we want all of the children of our aunts and uncles to know that Mom took great pride in her birthplace, her family and in the accomplishments of each and every one of you."
She loved to cook, especially for the big family gatherings at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and to show her dozens of handmade quilts to anyone interested. Of the hundreds of quilts she made, a few she sold, but most were gifts to family and friends to keep warm during cold winter nights. "We hope that those acts of giving will be part of how she is remembered."
She was preceded in death by her husband, Willis B. "Jack" Borden; two brothers, Dane and Basil Craddock; and three sisters, Oris Reynolds, Mavis Lester and Hazel Bolton.
Edwina leaves behind three loving children, Haskell (Barbara) Borden of Tierra Verde, Fla., Paul (Donna) Borden of Louisville and Deborah (John) Dunker of LaGrange. Grandchildren include Haskell's son, Jerod (Becky) Borden of Bowling Green; Paul and Donna's sons, Jonathan and Matthew Borden, both of Louisville; and Deborah's daughter, Jenna Borden of Louisville. Jerod's two children, Tyler and Justin, are Edwina's only two great-grandchildren and were special sources of joy to her.
