The Worthings Return From Trip Abroad

Thirteen countries were on the itinerary for a European trip from which Dr. and Mrs. Hugh O. Worthing, 2330 N. 6th St., have returned. During the period of approximately three months, they traveled in Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France, Monaco, Luxembourg, Western Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Scotland and England. The first part of the trip was not pleasant - for five days winds on the Atlantic blew a 100-mile gale while they were aboard the Christopher Columbus. The ship docked at Naples, Italy. In that country, they were among the throng that viewed the remains of Pope Pius X, whose body had been brought back as promised. When the Sheboyganites reached Paris, France, they were the guests of their niece, Miss Marion Worthing of Chevy Chase, Md., who is a first secretary in the American Embassy. She has been abroad two years and has been re-appointed for two additional ones. However, she will be having a two-month leave, beginning in November, and will be coming to the United States. She also expects to be visiting the Worthings in Sheboygan. By motor Miss Worthing took her uncle and aunt to Luxembourg, Western Germany - Cologne, Bonn, Coblenz and Heidelberg. En route they spied a sign that read "Gunstbach," which Miss Worthing knew was the home of Albert Schweitzer. They stopped at his little home town, where he had rebuilt the organ and recorded much of his music.................

James was born on May 2, 1943 and passed away on Saturday, February 24, 2007.

Jim grew up in Norman, OK. He was adored by his younger sister Karen (that's me) and by all who knew him.

My favorite memory of Jim was when he bought his first car, a 1952 Nash Rambler convertible with a white rag top. Jim wanted that car to be perfect. Noticing there was some mildew on the rag top, he went into the house and came out with a bottle of bleach. He put the bleach on full strength. He was so proud and made us all come out and look at the startlingly white roof. Next morning when he came out to drive to school, he was aghast when he looked at his beautiful white roof, which now had holes eaten into it by the bleach! It was a very funny day for us all.

Jim served his country in the US Army for over 20 years, retiring as a Lt. Col. He served two tours of duty in Viet Nam. He served as a helicopter pilot flying troop transport. He was awarded the Bronze Star with oak leaf clusters in honor of his bravery in battle. He and his family moved around the US and Europe during his service. After Army retirement, he continued to help his country as a civil servant working where he could be of most help. He retired from that job in 2006

He left behind a wife, Carol, two daughters Laura and Lannette, and a grandson, Reece.

More detail on this person: My dad was born May 2, 1943. He was in the hospital suffering from heart and lung issues and was on a respirator during his last days. He had numerous heart "events" during this time and was getting progressively weaker. My mother eventually came to the agonizing decision to sign a "do not resuscitate" and another heart attack took his life a few days later (making a very long story short). Extremely sad, needless to say, but most deaths are. He passed 3 1/2 yrs ago now and we miss him all the time. He really was a great guy and a great dad. There were topics we were both mutually interested in, such as finances that I cannot easily discuss with others and he gave great advice on that subject and others. He loved his country and his fellow man. I miss him all the time. From: Laura Hoffman

Hello there Borens! It is so strange to see people with my last name. It is just uncommon enough that, growing up, I always felt that "Boren" belonged only to my family, a feeling I'm sure many Borens out there share. My father is James Robert Boren of Texas, but originally from Norman, Oklahoma. His father, my grandfather, was also named James Robert Boren, AKA J.R. I know very little about this part of my family. I heard once that the name Boren was Scottish, but do not know if this is true. If there is indeed a Borensberg in Sweden, is it Swedish?? I am 1/8 Swedish, but from my mother's side. I was not aware of any Swedish blood coming from the Boren ancestry. I'd love to learn more about my name.
