Obituary for Lyal Turben Borgen

Lyal Turben Borgen, 87, was called home to God January 24, 2018. He was born August 27, 1930 to Turben and Alma (Anderson) Borgen at their home in Amherst, WI. Lyal grew up on that same farm where his love of the land and farming was cultivated. He graduated from Amherst High School in 1948. On December 12, 1959, Lyal married the love of his life, Suzanne Obermeyer at Peace Lutheran Church in Amherst. They were married for 58 wonderful years.  In his youth, Lyal loved hunting, bowling, and baseball. He farmed all his life, first with his dad and family, then with his brother Richard, and later with his sons. He loved working with animals and cultivating the soil in the area where he grew up. Lyal was a family man in every sense of the word and enjoyed having his family around. He especially loved visits from his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 Lyal was preceded in death by his parents Turben and Alma Borgen; brothers Gerald and Howard; and sister Ruth.

He is survived by his wife Suzanne; children Lowell (Marla) Borgen, Jeanne Borgen, Neal (Kim) Borgen, Linda (Keith) Natschke, Turben (Pam Berry) Borgen, and Alma (Rick) Stuebs;  one sister, Ethel (Tony) Paap and brothers: Keith (Edna) Borgen, Richard (Beverly) Borgen and George Borgen; 12 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

 A memorial service will be held at Peace Lutheran Church in Amherst, WI on Saturday, February 3rd at 11:30. Visitation will be from 9:30-11:30.  Mid Wisconsin Cremation Society is assisting the family at this time.
