Borowick, Josephine (4 Mar 1902 - 13 JUN 1920)

On Sunday afternoon last, Miss Josephine Borowick, in the company with others, went to the river three miles west of the village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) to go bathing. Shortly after entering the water she sank and rose to the surface twice. A young man from Stanley dove several times and pulled her out, but too late.

Miss Borowick was born at Marysdale, Pa., on March 4, 1902, and came to Thorp with her parents two years ago. She leaves to mourn her untimely death, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Borowick, two brothers and two sisters. The funeral took place on Tuesday morning from St. Hedwig's Church. Interment followed in the nearby cemetery.

Thank you for posting Josephine's obituary on the internet. I just ran across it a few days ago. She is my aunt. I knew she had drowned at a young age and this information is a wonderful addition to our family history. Thank you.

Florence (Borowick) Jones.
