Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement regarding the passing of Borah Van Dormolen:

"Throughout her extraordinary life, Borah Van Dormolen was motivated by a desire to serve her country and work passionately on the causes most important to her. After almost a quarter-century in the military, Lt. Col. Dormolen retired to champion the people and issues she valued, and she left her state, and her country, a better place for it. I was also proud to have appointed her to the State Cemetery Commission. We will all miss Borah's wisdom and boundless energy. Anita joins me in sending our deepest condolences to her husband, Rich Castle, along with the rest of her family and vast network of friends."
