Karley Justine Borger

March 31, 1993 — January 20, 2021

Karley Justine Borger, 27, of Arcanum, Ohio, passed away unexpectedly, along with her fiancé, Andre Fish, on Wednesday, January 20, 2021, as the result of an automobile accident.

She was born on March 31, 1993, in Oxford, Ohio to Scott Borger and Chantel Kendrick.

Karley was bright, honest and selfless. She enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, and could not make it through her day without her iced coffee. Her family meant the world to her. She was a loving aunt, and an amazing mother. Her boys meant everything to her. Her sudden departure from this life has shook the foundation of her family and her sweet enduring spirit will be missed forever.

In addition to her parents, Karley is survived by her sons, Bentley and Carter; her stepmother, Dona Rice; her siblings, Valan and Seth Houlton of Cincinnati, Vance and Erin Borger of Yellow Springs, and Ryan Borger of Lynn, Indiana; her step-siblings, Macie Gillum of Trotwood, Hannah Gillum of Trotwood, and Abbey Youngker of Englewood; her nieces and nephews, Abbie, Grant, Nora, Rachael, Luke, Jacob, Ellie, Hope, Zander, Paxton, Linkin, Elias, and Aero; her grandparents, Timothy and Beverly Borger of Greenville and Sherrie Kendrick of College Corner, Ohio; and her aunt and uncles, Kym and Roger Cost of Greenville, and John Kendrick of Hawaii.

A private funeral service for the immediate family will take place at a later date.

The family has entrusted Tribute Funeral Homes with the final arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the “Karley J. Memorial Fund” and sent to 1000 N. Broadway St., Greenville, Ohio 45331. All donations will be used to provide for her boys.
