Wilma Borden, 57


Wilma Borden of Truthville  died on January 2, 2007 at Glens Falls Hospital.

Wilma was born on Nov. 1, 1950 in Cambridge, N.Y. the daughter of William and Margaret (Hayes) Fleming.

Wilma was a graduate of Granville High School in 1969. Wilma and her husband “Bordie” opened Wilma’s Diner in 1994, a Truthville landmark. Both she and Bordie enjoyed their customers at the diner. It was breakfast and lunch with friends everyday. Always a hard worker, Wilma enjoyed the occasional game of bingo in her spare time, and especially enjoyed the feel of wind in her hair as she toured the countryside in a convertible. Wilma always enjoyed the unconditional love of her feline companion Dutchess.

Wilma is predeceased by her parents and by a son George McIntyre, Jr. Survivors are her husband, Robert “Bordie” Borden, a daughter, Helen Wood, and her husband, Robert (Bob) of Pawlet, Vt., and their children Jason and Jessica Lynn. Also surviving is a sister, Shirley Whitney, and her husband, Richard, of North Granville and their daughter, Jodie Prouty, and her husband, Jeremy, and their son, Alix. Wilma is also survived by a special lifelong “terrific” friend, Bonnie Pratt of Hampton, to whom the family wishes to extend their sincere thanks. In addition, she is survived by several aunts, uncles and cousins.

A graveside service will be held in the spring at the convenience of the family. Friends called on Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville

Memorial contributions may be made in lieu of flowers to the C.R. Wood Cancer Center @ Glens Falls Hospital, 100 Park St. Glens Falls, NY 12801.
