Obituary


Madeleine (Macchia) Borda

Madeleine (Macchia) Borda of Mercer Island, WA, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, went gently into the night on March 24, 2011.
Madeleine was born in Seattle, WA on May 8, 1922 to Antonetta and Trifone Macchia of Bari, Italy. She lived her early years in Skagit County railroad towns where her father worked for Great Northern. The family later moved to Everett, WA and opened their own business, the International Food Store, specializing in Italian products. Madeleine went on to graduate from Everett High School and Everett Business College. She held bookkeeping jobs at the Everett Shipyard, Ford Dealership, and D.A. Duryea Real Estate. In 1948 she married Louis Borda of Tacoma. The couple made their home in Seattle, WA and began raising their growing family, moving to Mercer Island in 1970.
Madeleine was a prolific knitter, talented cook, professional bookkeeper, and enthusiastic traveler, but her most ardent passion was being a mother and grandmother. Simple pleasures shared with family and friends made her the happiest.
Madeleine leaves behind her husband of 62 years, Louis; their six children, Richard (Mary Lynn) of Denver, CO; James, Thomas (Carol), Rosalie, Marianne Zech (Joe), and John (Becky); 13 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to acknowledge the staff at Swedish Hospital for their tireless and compassionate care.
Recitation of the Rosary will be held Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, April 4 at 11:00 a.m., both at St. Monica's Church, Mercer Island.
In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to Children's Hospital in Seattle.
