Susan Borchard passed away in her sleep on December 29, 2018 at Mary Health of the Sick in Newbury Park, CA. surrounded by family and friends

Susan Aileen Borchard was born on February 17, 1948 in Oxnard, CA, the daughter of Mary Daily Borchard and H. Oliver Borchard. She was educated in the local parochial elementary and high schools. She graduated from the University of Southern California in 1970 with a degree in Education and Social Science. In 1972, she received a Master of Science degree.

Remaining in the Los Angeles area, she taught elementary school for ten years, five for the Los Angeles Archdiocese and five for the Burbank Unified School District.

In the fall of 1980, Miss Borchard took a leave of absence from teaching and joined the Reagan-Bush campaign full time. Following the campaign, she went to work for the California Republican Party. In August of 1982, Miss Borchard moved to San Francisco and began her government service. She served as Regional Director of ACTION- The National Volunteer Agency. Ten months later she moved to Washington D.C. to work in the Reagan White House, where she served as the Director of Presidential Boards and Commissions.

Miss Borchard was stricken with a brain aneurysm and a stroke at the age of 38. In 2008, Miss Borchard suffered another stroke and at that time found her new home at Mary Health of the Sick, where she has lived the past ten years. She has never wavered in her love of God, country, family, friends and Mary Health Staff.

We wish to thank Dr. Dattoma, the sisters and staff at Mary Health for their loving care of Susan. In lieu of flowers we ask you to donate to a Charity of your choice, to Mary Health of the Sick or the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
