U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the passing of Borah Van Dormolen:
“Sandy and I are deeply saddened at the early loss of Borah Van Dormolen, a remarkable patriot, respected leader, and loving wife.
“Borah rose through the ranks of the Army achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. After more than two decades serving her nation, Borah poured her energy and sense of duty into Texas. Frequently offering frank advice in only the way Borah could do, she was a leader by example and a friend.
“Borah's legacy will live on in many ways, including in the young Texans she helped me select for nominations to our nation¹s military academies through her service on my Military Academy Selection Committee.
“Sandy joins me in sending our thoughts and prayers to Borah’s husband, Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Rich Castle, their families, and all of those that Borah touched throughout her journey in life.”
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) paid tribute to the late-Republican National Committeewoman for Texas, Borah Van Dormolen:
In politics, Borah fought for what she believed with dogged determination and a commanding presence. In the military, she served our nation admirably with distinction. In business, she was a true entrepreneur in the spirit of limitless Texas opportunity.
Heidi and I extend our deepest condolences to her husband Rich and their entire family. Borah will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her.
