She also left behind 13 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Doris is preceded in death by her parents Irene and Eldric Rowe, her sister Nancy Bowman, brothers Lenny Rowe and Arthur Rowe, and her beloved grandchild Scotty Dunlap.
Doris was born on January 25, 1949 in Amesbury, Massachusetts. She married Joseph Borges, the love of her life, inNovember 1969 and together they raised a very large combined family. We remember her love for children and animals. Her candy bowl was always full, and the grandkids knew exactly where to get a treat. She had that same love for every pet that has been a part of this family. Stormy, Rex, Bomber, DOG and many others always knew who to go to for love and a treat.
Condolences can be sent to 1174 Concord Street, Antrim, NH 03440. She was cremated and the ashes are home to stay with Joseph until the world is in a safer place. At that time, we will have a small service at Saint Mary’s Church in Hillsboro, NH followed by placing her ashes at the NH Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen NH.
