Funeral services are scheduled for Friday for Patricia Borges, 50, a middle school English teacher at Roycemore School in Evanston.

Borges died suddenly at her home Monday night of what school officials described in an email message to parents as natural causes.

Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. at the Cumberland Chapels, 8300 West Lawrence Ave. in Norridge, followed by a mass at 10 a.m. at St. Eugene Church, 7958 W. Foster in Chicago.

Roycemore Headmaster Kevin Smith said Borges “was a beloved teacher and strong advocate for students and lived life with enthusiasm. This is a great
loss for our community.”

Borges also reportedly worked in the Chicago Cubs organization for 28 years.
