Karen, So sorry to hear of Marks passing. Edna had received a notice about it on facebook, but we neglected to check on the arrangements until today and found the calling and service was held last Monday. Sorry we could not express our condolences in person.

We are saddened to hear of Mark's passing. We watched the video of Tom and Kari's wedding and rehearsal recently and laughed at the stories Mark told and saw the love he has for his family. Mark's legacy will live on through Tom, Amy and Kathy and all of your beautiful grandkids. Celebrating his life with you and the gift of eternal life in heaven.

I am very sad for you Aunt Karen, Tom, Kathy and Amy. Praying for you also. I have so many great memories of Uncle Mark in Milwaukee, our bbq’s, picnics, birthdays, get-togethers, Christmas(s), 4th of July’s @ Smith Park together. He trusted me and I sat with the kids a few times too. Always made you feel welcome, part of the family. Basically was a #1 Uncle all around. When I was real small I’d say he was my rich Uncle Mark, cause he’d give me a dime to go get an ice cream. I Love and miss him almost as much as you.

Steve & I have known Mark for at least 40 years. Starting at Trinity, he was the Principal there when we joined the church. We regularly sat behind them in church and watched their children grow up. He was also my daughter Lisa's 4th grade teacher. Then he was Principal at Zion when my son Perry was a student, and we saw both him and Karen at church regularly. Mark will be missed, I know, but I am comforted to know he's in heaven now with Jesus. We will see him again :)

In the short time I knew Mark, he impressed me as a good man, father, husband and school principal. He was a great influence on me as well as my children, as students at Trinity Lutheran. My prayers and condolences to Karen and the family. 🙏🙏🙏

Karen and family, I have so many memories of Mark from our time at Concordia. Our student teaching including the trip from NE and adventures while in Denver area. His directions as we drove to our first teaching assignment and planned to meet him at his aunts home in Milwaukee. Remember we were to smell the beer from the brewery and know we were near! He had to come find us as we drove all the way through Milwaukee and didn't find the turn off. His humor was always evident in Christmas letters and never failed to bring a smile to our faces. The Lord sustain you in this time and comfort you with memories of a life well lived. Love to each of you... Glenda Dobbertien

The Boerger clan has lost another great man. My deepest condolences to Aunt Karen, Tom, Kathy and Amy. My uncle Mark was one of a kind. His sense of humor was almost always welcomed. He was loved by many and has left me with many fond memories.

Our love and prayers go out to Karen, the kids, and our friends in New Palestine. Mark was a good friend and wonderful, caring man. God bless you all!

I remember the fun times at Buck Lake, the Indy 500 (for 11 years in a row), and at Pokagon with Uncle Mark and Aunt Karen. One thing about those Boergers: they knew how to laugh and have fun. He can now finally know the truth about the sauna at Buck Lake. Dear Uncle. He will be missed.

I didn't know Mark well; but, he and I stood up for his brother John and Fay Boerger's wedding when we were only about 8 years old. I also remember spending time with him when he visited my Grandparent's cottage on Lake Huron. I know he will be missed by all and I will keep you all in my prayers.

Karen, my prayers are with you and your family. I always enjoyed Mark's humor and jokes. Working with him was a pleasure.

If they don’t serve beer in Heaven? They do now! RIP Uncle!
Renae Behnke Henning left a message on July 30, 2020:
I can vividly remember always feeling welcome at the Boerger household. Sleepovers, or visits Mr. and Mrs. Boerger always made us feel welcome. Mr. Boerger was my best grade school friend's dad first and principal second. I was never in his office (at least I don't think i was ;-) I know he was a trusted servant of the Lord. My sincerest condolences to the entire family. Much love, Renae (Kathy's grade school classmate at Trinity Lutheran)
