It is with great sadness that we announce our mother's passing at Belmont House. Wife of the late Henry Borden. Mother of Robert Laird Borden (the late Jennifer), Ann Creelman Bull (Charles), John Perry Borden, Mary Jean Potter (Frank) and Henry ''Mac'' MacRae Borden (Susan). Loving family matriarch to 17 grandchildren, 33 great- grandchildren and 1 great-great- grandchild. Sister of the late Donald Alexander MacRae and aunt to David MacRae, Charles MacRae and Andrew MacRae and their families. A private family service will be held in the Chapel of ALL SAINT'S CHURCH, King City. A reception to celebrate the life of this extraordinary and much loved woman will be held at THE YORK CLUB at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to The Belmont House Foundation, 55 Belmont Street, Toronto M5R 1R1, where she was made so comfortable for the last 14 years and enjoyed so many friendships. The family especially wishes to thank all the staff, nurses and caregivers at Belmont House who always show such care and compassion to the residents, tenants and family members.
