Obituary: Worth Marie Borda
March 11, 1925 – June 27, 2013
Carson Valley resident, Worth Borda, daughter of Charles and Eleanor Gilbert, and the widow of Pete Borda, passed away peacefully June 27, 2013. She moved to the Carson Valley as a junior in high school where she met the love of her life, Pete. Worth made the Valley her proud home. She was an active member of the Fortnightly Club, taught Red Cross swimming lessons and entertained parade watchers during the Carson Valley Days’ parade, portraying unusual characters with a life long friend, Rhoda Chichester. Being an avid golfer herself, she also helped develop a women’s golf club at the Carson Valley Golf Course.
Worth’s world was all about family. Her brother, Harold Gilbert, who is survived by his sons, Mike and Paul, preceded her in death. She leaves behind two sisters, Joyce Neddenriep and Jeanne Peelle; three children, Joyce Gavin (John), Angie Page (Jim), and Ted Borda (Diana); eight grandchildren, Alicia, Tedra, Joe, Dustan, Pete, John, Daniel and Anna; and four great-grandchildren, Brooke, Hudson, Roman and Madalynn. The family acknowledges tremendous effort from her wonderful caregiver, Marilyn.
