Obituary for Marie M. Borrego

San Antonio, Texas | Age 80

...was on "cloud nine" as she danced with Elvis ...


On Thursday, June 21, 2018, our beloved mother, wife, grandmother and sister, Marie M. Borrego (Nilda), age 80, went to be with the Lord. She was a proud graduate of Fox Tech High School, class of 1956. She retired from the Veteran's Administration after 28 years in the audiology department.

A true home body, she enjoyed cooking so many of our favorite meals for the family. She was an avid organizer, had a place for everything. She was very loving and supportive of her family; very forgiving, patient and kind.

One of her passions was music and dancing. A vivid memory shared, dating back to Ricky Ware, radio station KTSA ~ Mom wrote a poem which won a date with Elvis! She was on "cloud nine" as she danced with Elvis and was whisked for a ride in his "Pink Cadillac"!

Marie is preceded in death by her parents, Jesus and Delia Mendoza and her brother, Jose Humberto, and sister-in-law, Ernestina.

She is survived by her husband, Raul J. Borrego; children: Yvonne Borrego and Yvette Johansen; grandchildren: Karl Johansen and Ethan Johansen; brothers: Jesus Mendoza, Joe Mendoza (Dianne); sister, Yolanda Rodriguez (Armando), along with numerous cousins, other relatives and friends.

Visitation - Thursday, July 5th, 5:00 PM in the chapel of Porter Loring on McCullough; Rosary at 7:00 PM.

Friday, July 6th, 9:30 AM, Mass ~ St. Matthews Catholic Church, 10703 Wurzbach Rd interment in Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.
