Beverly Borrmann, age 88 of Appleton, passed away at her home. Bev was born in Milwaukee on June 20, 1929, daughter of the late Robert and Dena (Johnson) Coulson. She graduated from both high school and Business College and on August 2, 1947 married William “Bill” Borrmann in Milwaukee. Together, the couple spent over sixty beautiful years together and raised six children. For many years, Bill practiced chiropractic in town, and for many of those same years and beyond, Bev submersed herself in her love for the Lord. She started and supported nursing home ministries in the area, was an early on-air personality at WEMI THE FAMILY radio station, loved to plan music and worship services, organized and participated in prayer walks, and spent countless hours lifting up area churches in prayer for the good news of Jesus to be spread to those who don’t know the Good News. Maybe as important as all of that is the fact that she mentored others to do the same, effectively increasing the power of prayer many times over. That will be Bev’s legacy. Bev is survived by her loving family: Blair (Leah) Borrmann of Indianapolis and their daughter Mara; Bari (Craig) Mader of Farmington, Minnesota and their sons Caleb (Kajsa) and Spencer; Bonnie Borrmann (Ron) of Wisconsin Dells and her children Conrad, Emily, and Jason; Barbra (Robert) Frahm of Appleton and their children Andrew (Alexandria), Austin (fiancée’ Caroline), and Abigale; Marvin (Nancy) Taylor of Sturgeon Bay; Maria Taylor of Appleton and daughters Anna and Alicia (Chad); and Dannie (Josephine) Taylor of South Beloit, Illinois and their daughters Connie and Dawn (Bob). Bev is also survived by eight great grandchildren. Bev was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and two sisters: Mavis (Louis) Theisen and Lois (Robert) Burdette. A memorial service to celebrate the wonderful life Bev lived and the eternal joy she is experiencing now will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Wichmann Funeral Home - Tri County Chapel, 1592 Oneida Street in Menasha, with Pastor John Kieffer officiating. Inurnment will be in Greenlawn Memorial Park. Family and friends are invited to gather at the funeral home on Saturday, the 22nd, from 9:00 AM until the time of the service. For more information or to share a memory of Bev, please visit In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to WEMI radio. The family would like to offer their sincere thanks to the caregivers who made Bev’s final days so comfortable, especially Ann, Kim, and Jeanne. Thanks also to Mary and Mark for all of their assistance with help around the house and keeping her gardens beautiful for her. She appreciated all of you, and so do we.
