The oldest of three children, Mrs. Bork was born August 19, 1900, in Flora, Ore., to Frank and Ella Davis Lindley.
The family moved to Wallula early in her life, and later returned to acquire more land through home steading and continue to farm.
She went to school in one-room schools in several areas, including Star and Sunny Glade in Wallowa County. She attended high school in Flora.
On May 19, 1919, she married William Bork in Enterprise, Ore. They made their home on a ranch about 30 miles from Enterpise for several years, where they also raised three children.
In 1939, the couple moved to the Stateline area, where Mrs. Bork lived until the death of her husband in 1988. She then lived with her daughter in California and her son in Pendleton.
She was baptized into the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in 1938. She and her husband helped establish the Stateline Seventh-Day Adventist Church, which was built on land donated from their field.
For many years, she was a teacher in the children’s division of the church. She also was active in Dorcas Welfare. She especially enjoyed making quilts.
Mrs. Bork was preceded in death by one son, Leonard Bork, as well as her husband.
Survivors are one son, Herbert Bork of Pendleton, one daughter, Wanda Esposito of Highland, Calif., six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
