In memory of
DeeAnne Fusek Borden, 93, passed peacefully on St. Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2019, to rejoin her sister, Matilda, in their heavenly home. She was born to the late Matthew and Antonia (nee Draschovic) Fusek on April 22, 1925, in Benwood, West Virginia.
Admired by many for her loving heart and "feisty" spirit, she was a fierce friend, mother, grandmother, aunt, and sister. She had a natural flair for fashion, floral arrangement, and aesthetics, as well as a generous soul, donating to numerous charities throughout the latter half of her life. Her strong will and sense of humor, despite the many health challenges she faced, were an inspiration to everyone around her.
She leaves behind her daughter, Pamela Borden Tokar (Peter Tokar), granddaughter, Kathryn Tokar, and sister, Eileen Fusek Korach, of Tampa, Florida. She was a cherished aunt to: Charles Brown Jr., Dennis Brown, Janet Fusek Carey, Barbara Fusek Kershner, Karen Korach, Thomas Welsch, Shauna Fusek Benson, Michael Fusek, David Fusek, and Edward Haufe, Jr.
