Obituary for Kim A. Borge

PEORIA - Kim A. Borge, age 61, of Peoria, passed away Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at her home.

Born December 29, 1956 in Plattsburgh, NY, she was the daughter of James and Charlotte (Groom) Keeton. She married Richard Borge on September 1, 2006 in Peoria.

Surviving are her husband, Richard of Peoria, her mother, Charlotte Keeton of Peoria, daughter Melissa (Jeff) Bloom of Pekin, daughter Jessica (Zack) Stackle of Dunlap, son Bey Grunder of Honolulu Hi, step daughter Hilary Borge of Cooksville, IL, and stepson Nathan (Kate) Borge of Chicago.

And last but not least, her dog Dasher who provided much comfort and love during her two and a half year battle with cancer. She was preceded in death by her father.

Kim began her working career as a buyer for Schradski’s Department store and then returned to school to earn her degree in Medical Technology from Bradley University. She entered the field of healthcare and held various management positions at Unity Point Methodist, Galesburg Cottage Hospital, and later at OSF. She last worked in March 2018.

Kim had special skills when it came to interior decorating and design. She loved gardening and her favorite places were family vacations at the beaches in Destin Florida with the warm sun and a cool drink. She was also a Disney fan and spent many vacations in Orlando or Anaheim with the family and especially her beloved grandchildren.
