Sally A. Borski, 85, Weston, died Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at her home.
She was born October 3, 1935 in Hatley, daughter of the late Ernest and Regina (King) Platta. On June 7, 1958, she married James “Jim” Borski at St. Therese Catholic Church, Rothschild. He preceded her in death on August 16, 2010.
For several years, Sally volunteered at St. Clare’s Hospital, Weston. Her outgoing nature paired well with her love of shopping, spending time with good friends, going out to dinner, traveling, and cooking for others. Sally showed her love through her cooking and baking, and always found a reason to drop off a pecan pie or homemade soup. The Sunday morning Polka Jamboree on WDEZ was a favorite of Sally’s, as was her avid support for the Packers.
Survivors include her daughter, Stephanie (Al) Ashbeck, Kronenwetter; grandchildren, Ashley (Ryan) Hurley, Kronenwetter, Tanner (Jessica) Ashbeck, Kronenwetter; three great-grandchildren, Landon and Jordan Hurley and Layla Ashbeck; one brother, Art (Nancy) Platta, Minnesota.
Besides her parents and husband, Jim, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Richard, Vilas, and Arnold “Heinie” Platta.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at St. Therese Catholic Church, Rothschild. Rev. Joseph Albert will preside. Inurnment will be at a later date at Restlawn Memorial Park, Wausau. Out of respect to the health concerns with the current pandemic, there will not be a visitation. The family will announce a Celebration of Life for Sally at a later date. The Mass will be live-streamed on the St. Therese Facebook page and for later viewing on the Peterson/Kraemer website.
