Dorothy Jean Borchers, 81, of Bennett, passed away in her home, with her family by her side on Saturday, September 23, 2017. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, September 27 at 11:30 a.m. Fry Funeral Home, Tipton, with a time of visitation one hour prior to the start of the funeral service. Private family burial will conclude at Inland Cemetery, Bennett. A memorial fund in Dorothy's memory has been established. Online condolences may be shared at www.fryfuneralhome.com.
Dorothy was born on January 16, 1936, in Bennett, to Mervin and Ruth (Gottschalk) Motz. She graduated from Bennett High School with the class of 1953. Dorothy was united in marriage to Kenneth Borchers on August 31, 1957, at Peace Church in Bennett, where she was also a member. They resided in rural New Liberty, where they farmed and raised their family of three children: Lori, Bryan and Troy. They later divorced.
In addition to being a farm-wife and mother, Dorothy was employed at Farm Service as a secretary for 25+ years. She began with the company in Bennett before they needed her in Lowden and then soon after in Tipton, where she completely retired from at the age of 70. Dorothy loved traveling, especially to Ballard's Resort in Minnesota where she did most of her fishing. She also enjoyed gardening and car rides, and walks to the post-office where she would catch up or catch others up on the town's news. She also loved spending time with her granddaughter and great-grandson.
Surviving Dorothy are her children, Lori (Joe) Sparks of Bennett, Bryan Borchers (Ronda Fields) of Tipton, Troy Borchers of Bennett; sister, Diane (Kevin) Grimm Sr. of Victor; brother, Gerald Motz; granddaughter, Teresa (Ian) Bjurstrom; great-grandson, Maddox Bjurstrom and one on the way, all of Bennett.
