Obituary

We can only hope that we reach 100 years old, like Frances, while still trying to escape from the nursing home to hop on her John Deere tractor to mow the lawn.

Frances M. Borgman (nee Viel), formerly of Bright, passed away on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at the age of 100. She was born in the Bright area to August and Alice (nee Marquette) Viel on January 8, 1922. On February 15, 1947, Frances married Harold Borgman and together they were blessed with two children: Roger and Russell. She started her working career at the Western Auto, as a salesclerk, and used her first paycheck to buy a refrigerator. Frances was always a hard worker and loved mowing the lawn on her John Deere tractor.

Frances was preceded in death by her loving husband: Harold Borgman; beloved son: Russell Borgman; and brother: Robert Viel.

Those left to cherish her memory are her son: Roger (Linda) Borgman; granddaughter: Christy; and great grandson: David Brown.
