PRICE/PALO ALTO, Calif. - Lenore Borzage Peacock passed away Saturday morning, Nov. 1, 2008, after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.
She remained enthusiastically engaged in life until the last possible minute and did not let her illness slow her down.
At age 85, Lenore was still an avid gardener and expert knitter.
Lenore was a San Francisco 49er Faithful Fan. She got much joy from sports, traveling, her family and friends.
Born March 1, 1923, Lenore moved to Palo Alto, Calif., in 1959 from Price with her husband and soulmate, the late Lloyd Peacock.
For many years, she was employed at the Emporium Department Store.
Later in life, she raised her grandson, David, from age 8 to 19. This brought her much joy and kept her young at heart.
In most recent years, her favorite joy has been her two great-grandchildren, Colin (5) and Nathan (2). She taught them many things, one of which is the love of flowers from her garden.
Lenore was preceded in death by her parents, Jessie Behunin Borzage and Joseph Borzage; and the love of her life, her late husband Lloyd Peacock. She is survived by her son, Warren Peacock, and grandson, David Peacock, of Mt. View, Calif.; granddaughter, Julie Lees and husband, Garrett, and children, Colin and Nathan of Santa Rosa, Calif.; many extended family of aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and lifelong friends in Price.
A celebration of Lenore's life will be Friday, Nov. 7, at 11a.m. at Mitchell's Funeral Home in Price. Interment, Price City Cemetery.
