Elyse was one of my professors and an absolute light in my time at YSN. She always told me how much she loved cows and asked me how my pet cow was doing. She was able to find something to bond over with every person she saw, and provided endless positivity and compassion to every one of her students. She will be so deeply missed and all of my love goes out to her family.

My deepest condolences to Elyse’s family. We had switched our children to Elyse after our pediatrician had retired. I am still trying to process because we saw her for an ear infection on Friday. Our family has known her since our first son was born 8 years ago. She was lovely and extremely knowledgeable. Our thoughts and love to the family and everyone at Orange Pediatrics.

Elyse was one of my professors during my time at YSN. She truly cared about the students and our wellbeing. She was excellent at keeping in touch even after we graduated, whether it was wishing a happy birthday, or reaching out to catch up and see how we were doing. She was always vivacious and engaging, and I loved following her life on Facebook. I am truly saddened by her passing and sending love and comfort to her family and friends during this extremely difficult time.

Elyse and I went to Binghamton and worked on Harpur’s Ferry together. We’ve kept in touch over the years through Facebook. I was shocked to hear of her sudden passing. My deepest condolences to family, friends, colleagues and all those whose lives she touched. Baruch Dayan Emet.

Elyse cared for both our girls (16 months and 4 years). Elyse was always kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. I never worried knowing that Elyse would always know what to do. She thought through every issue. Sometimes she even called after an appointment saying you know what I’ve been thinking more about this and we are going to change our plan. I appreciated her attention to detail when it came to my kids health. Her love of nursing and her patients is unmatched. I cannot imagine the loss her family, friends and colleagues are feeling. I pray all of you find some comfort during this difficult time.

Hi Rebecca / Matt and Borsuk family, my sincere condolences on your loss of such a wonderful mother and woman.

I thought I would share a short story of how your mom makes it into my family holidays just about every year

In 2002, I was the catcher for the Orange Little League baseball team. At the same time, I was attending a science camp 3 days a week with a final project of building a telescope.

The construction of that telescope involved industrial grade hot glue and on the day of the state semi finals – both of my hands ended up in the glue. Severely burned, painful, and brutal to look at – when my mother arrived to pick me up, the perspective of catching a full baseball game was slim to none.

My mother rushed me to Orange Pediatrics where I met Mrs Borsuk for the first time. When we got in there the burns were deep, nasty, and painful. As I asked questions about what a nurse practitioner was, she started her magic. Within one hour we had removed the glue, cleaned and treated the wounds, and tried several different padding and tape combinations to make sure we could do anything I could to try and catch + throw with them.

Well, she did it. That night I showed up with 2 hands taped like dog paws and for the remainder of the season I was taped up and able to play. We won the state title and had a memorable year.

My mother tells me this story at most holidays and Mrs Borsuk is always the hero in it.

We will keep telling this story, as it’s a fond one for us, and I hope it can be a reminder of the caring and intelligent woman she was.

Sending love and prayers.
– Chris Peterson

Elyse was our son’s pediatrician. Always compassionate, personable, and comforting for both my boys and us as parents. This one really hurts because we built a strong relationship with Elyse wanted her to always be our boys’ pediatrician. We enjoyed hearing about her family that she loved dearly. It showed through in every visit. My prayers go out to Elyse, her family, and everyone that loved her. No doubt that’s a very long list.

Rest in peace, Elyse. We know you’re in a perfect place now.

I’ve know Elyse for most of my life. I taught her daughter at dance before I even had my own kids. One I had my children I of course took them to her for care. When my daughter had my grandchild we of course took her to Elyse. She was a wonderful person and I cant say enough good things about her. My love goes out to Ed, Rebecca and Matthew. She will be missed.

My heart is broken to hear this… I am so sorry for your loss. Elyse was my preceptor for a year at Orange Pediatrics during my time at YSN. She was also a mentor, teacher, and friend. She spoke about her dear family with so much love. You could tell how much she loved her patients and students as well. Sending all my love to you…

Elise made a difference in my families life. She was my daughter’s pediatrician and a trusted source not only to help my teenage daughter but me in navigating these sometimes difficult years. Elise was so so smart and I was in awe of her. She spoke often about her sons and her husband and her love of her family. While I am shocked and saddened by this news I am happy to have had her in our lives.

I men Elyse almost 20 years ago in the office. She has been a friend, a mentor and cared for my children during sickness and health. She will always be a pillar in our families lives. She taught me so much, always giving so much. I would be in awe of her love for her Ed, her children, friends and family. iI loved her stories and relished her advice. This is shocking and I send my heartfelt condolences . May her memory always be a blessing.
