Eleanor Elizabeth (Butchko) Borzcik

January 22, 1933 ~ May 19, 2023 (age 90) 90 Years Old


Eleanor E. Borzcik, 90, of York Springs, PA, and formerly of Indiana, PA died unexpectedly on May 19, 2023. Daughter of the late George and Mary (Havrilak) Butchko, Eleanor was born in Tire Hill, PA on January 22, 1933.

Eleanor and Anthony Borzcik of Vintondale, PA were married on September 8, 1951.  They had celebrated 69 years of marriage before Tony died on August 13, 2021. She grew up in the Johnstown area of Tire Hill and graduated from Conemaugh High School in 1950.  She and Tony moved around in the early years, living in Akron OH,  Mayfield KY, and Columbus, MS before settling in Indiana, PA. in 1964.  Tony worked as the plant engineer for McCreary Tire and Rubber Co, and together they started Sleepy Hollow Orchard, Indiana, PA.  They lived 30 years in Lucernmines, PA. They were members of Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church.

Eleanor was an exceptionally happy person, finding beauty in everything and goodness in all.  She was full of grace and had the gift to light up every room.  She wasn’t a woman of grand gestures or loud horns, but she had a way of making every moment intentional and special and made every person she encountered feel heard and loved.  She adored her family and celebrated the smallest of moments and the most joyous of reunions.  She embodied the spirit of love. Although she will be terribly missed, we rejoice that she is reunited with her countless loved ones that have gone before her. Through our tears, we all celebrate a life so incredibly well lived.

Eleanor is survived by her children, Stephanie (Rick) Parkington of Lake Monticello, VA, Stephen Borzcik of Boulder, CO, and Kris (Kevin) Benner of York Springs, PA with whom she was living these last two years.  She was preceded in death by her husband Tony, and her children, Michael (Louise) Borzcik and Joan (Greg) Rethi.  Eleanor is also survived by her ten grandchildren, Jennifer, Michelle, Francine, Michael, Emily, Caroline, Matt, Mandy, Hannah, and Noah, and her great-grandchildren, Luke, Erin, Natalie, and Adam.

Eleanor's siblings Justine (Paul) Rusinko and Julie (Dick) Mills also survive her.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and George Butchko, and siblings Anna (Mike) Chinchar, George (Bucsko) Butchko, Mary (Ray) Wilkerson, Michael (Anna) Butchko, Margaret Butchko, George Butchko, Helen (Bill) Royer, Joseph (Dottie) Butchko, Pauline (Buddy) Rogers, John (Jean) Butchko, Elizabeth Butchko, Paul (Vickie) Butchko and Stephen (Paula) Butchko.
