November 21, 1948 - July 27, 2021
Jeanne Kay (Burgess) Borders, 72 passed away on Tuesday, July 27, 2021. She was born in St. Louis, MO November 21, 1948 to the late Harold and Hilda Burgess. Beloved wife of 52 years to Fred L. Borders, dear mother to Mark (Kristi), Brian (Kelly), and Greg (Jenny) Borders, loving "Nan" to her grandchildren Brendan, Carson, and Harrison Borders, Kate and Jane Borders, and Jake Borders. Jeanne graduated from Normandy High School in 1966. She earned a B. S. degree in education from Central Methodist College in 1969 and a M. Ed. degree from Covenant College in 1994. Jeanne and Fred lived in St. Louis until 1986, before moving to Atlanta, GA. After many years of being a stay-at-home mom, Jeanne began her professional career as a teacher and as a Head of School. She served at Eastside Christian School for 13 years and then founded Cornerstone Preparatory Academy, serving as the Head of School for 15 years. Upon retirement in 2019, Jeanne continued to serve as Founder Emeritus of Cornerstone Prep. Jeanne enjoyed time at the beach, reading all genres, taking walks, home decorating, learning, and pickle ball. She and Fred enjoyed traveling the world. But most important to her was her relationship with Jesus Christ. Her life verse was Phillipians 4:6-7, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." The family will have a visitation on Sunday, August 1, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. till 6:00 p.m. at Cornerstone Preparatory Academy, 3588 Hickory Grove Road, Acworth, GA 30101. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to Cornerstone Prep in her honor.
