Lincoln Boris

Lincoln Mitchell Boris, 2 years and 8 days, went home to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Wednesday morning, Oct. 26, 2022. Lincoln died peacefully in his sleep at home. He was healthy until the moment God graciously called him home.

Lincoln was born Oct. 18, 2020 to his parents Devin and Kathryn (Henning) Boris and just welcomed home his baby brother, Samuel (3 months old).

He was so filled with joy, had a larger-than-life smile and had a humble and gracious heart. Lincoln brought a smile to everyone he met. He loved his cousins and family so much and he couldn’t wait for them to be around. Lincoln loved to help and embraced life every day.

Survivors include his parents Devin and Kathryn and brother Samuel; grandparents Todd and Lisa Boris; his uncle and aunt Justin and Megan Boris; cousins Rylan, Hudson, Violet and Norah; grandparents Kert and Christi Henning; his uncles and aunts Rebekah and Cory Henschel and cousins Colton, Easton and Penelope; Joshua and Maura Henning and cousins Everett, Clara and Evelyn; Laura Henning; Rachel and Chris Nadler; great-grandparents; Walter Boris and friend Kathy, Helen Henning and Mona Stack. He is further survived by his great-aunts; uncles; other relatives; and many special buddies that he met along his journey of life.

Lincoln was preceded in death by his great-grandparents James and Janice Randall, June Boris, Everett and Jellane Henning and Jack Stack.

“Our hearts are shattered and the pain is deep. We can’t begin to thank everyone for their prayers during this difficult time, but we believe in a Sovereign God who knew us before we were born and numbered our days here on earth. Isaiah 57:1 - ‘Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come.’

“We know Lincoln is walking in Heaven with our Lord and Savior because he believed when Jesus said in John 14:6 – ‘I am the way the truth and the life – no one comes to the Father except through me.’ If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ – ask Him to come into your life. We will miss him – his joy, his laughter and all he was, but God had greater plans for him and for us. God blessed us and the 2 years we had with him. Time to love and to celebrate the goodness that God has given us. May we praise the name of the Lord forever.”

Please join the family in celebrating the goodness that was given to them at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 4 at Faith Alliance Church, 468 N. State St., Chilton with the Rev. James Jensen officiating. Lincoln will be laid to rest at Bethlehem UCC Cemetery, town of Schleswig with a private family service.

The family will greet relatives and friends at the church from 9:00 a.m. until the time of service at 10:30 a.m.

The family requests that in lieu of all flowers and memorial items, please assist them in a memorial fund that will be established in Lincoln’s name.

The Boris family would like to thank the New Holstein and Calumet County Emergency Units, especially Josh Harn and Mike Klaeser for going above and beyond for the family during their time of need.
