Beverly Kellogg Borter Obituary
BEVERLY KELLOGG BORTER, born in Napa, California on November 22, 1919, passed away peacefully in her daughter's Riverside home on February 28, 2014. She was 94 years old. Mrs. Borter graduated from Merced High School and later married the love of her life, William (Bill) Borter. They were married for 49 years, settling in Riverside in 1950, where they raised their two children, William Borter III (wife Nancy) of Foster City; Janet Borter Tavaglione (husband, John) of Riverside; two grandchildren, Heidi Tavaglione & Christopher Tavaglione, daughter-in-law Jennifer; and, three great grandchildren, Madelon (Lulu), William (Will), and Grace Beverly. Mrs. Borter has one surviving sister, Bobbi Hanson, and was preceded in death by a second sister (June) and brother (Buddy), all from the Merced area. After her husband Bill's death in 1989, Beverly moved to Sun Lakes in Banning, and resided there until her death. Beverly was very active - still driving her yellow VW Beatle and living alone three weeks prior to her passing. Bev loved life and was always ready for the next adventure. From snow skiing in her late teens in Yosemite to traveling the world with her beloved husband Bill. Many may remember Mrs. Borter for her annual Christmas boutique held in her home on Arlington Avenue in Riverside near the School for the Deaf. Along with her sister, Bobbi, Bev worked all year making wonderful handcrafted items to sell at their annual boutique. Her home was also the neighborhood polling place for many years in the 60's through the late 1980's. She was a devoted homemaker and mother involving herself with many organizations - from PTA, Boys & Girl Scouts, DeMolay & Job's Daughters to Children's League - all brought her much joy & happiness, providing for lifelong friendships and wonderful memories. But her greatest joy was her two grandchildren who gave her so much love and happiness. And with the arrival of her great-grandchildren later in her life she would always look forward to spending time with her precious loved ones. Bev was a wonderful wife, sister, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to so many. Our lives were blessed with her for 94 wonderful years, and she will be deeply missed. In her memory, Mrs. Borter's family has requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made to your local hospice. Services will be private.
