Cynthia Gayle Borman

Wood River | Thursday, April 23 2015

Cynthia Gayle Borman came to us on Good Friday April 23rd, 1943, and departed us on her birthday exactly 72 years later at 6pm at Barnes Jewish Hospital.  Born to Tray & Mary Bauer, she was a middle sister to Sharon Asaro, of Bethalto and Jim Bauer also of Bethalto.  Gayle graduated from EAWR High in 1961.  She worked at Arlans Grocery, Amoco and Clark refineries, and was a licensed massage therapist for 28 years. She is survived by her two sons Brock Borman of Boulder, CO and Braun Borman of Austin,TX and two grandchildren Cameryn and Cooper Borman.

As a passionate member of the Sierra Club, she always strove to preserve and protect nature. She was an honored recipient of the "Spirit of Sierra" in 2014.  She was an avid hiker, cyclist, and loved life with high spirits.  She will be sorely missed by many friends and family who feel heaven called her too soon.

Private funeral services will be held at Valhalla Memorial Park.  A memorial to celebrate Cynthia's life will be open to all friends and family on Saturday May 2, 2015 at the "Nelson Home" in the Nature Institute at 2213 S Levis Ln, Godfrey, IL.  Feel free to visit anytime between 2 - 6pm.

Memorials may be made to the Piasa Palisades Group of the Sierra Club, 200 3rd St  Ste. 512,  Alton, IL  62002

Marks Mortuary in Wood River is in charge of arrangements.
