Vivian Margaret Sturm-Borowiak gently passed at the grand age of 95 yrs while residing in a Memory Care facility in Carmichael, CA.
Viv was well known and very active in the Parents’ Group for Developly Disabled adults for many decades at Orange Grove School; a long-time attendee at St. John’s church and parish in Carmichael, CA
Those who knew Viv said she was a “Joy” to be around and showed great love and compassion for all the animals she surrounded herself with, namely homeless dogs and cats. She grew up on a farm in the Midwest surrounded by various animals also, but her greatest love and companion was her horse “Colonel.”
She is preceded in passing by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Sturm, her beloved brother and sister-in-law, Jack and Minola Sturm of Joliet, Illinois. She has proceeded in passing her 8 children: Pat Borowiak-Green, Dan Borowiak, Jill Wright, Marcia Braga, John Borowiak, Maggie Borowiak and Jim Borowiak and numerous grandchildren and great grand-children.
“Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.”
