Eugene Arthur Zaborowski (9 Feb 1929 – 18 Sep 1948)

A Requiem High Mass was held at 9 a.m. today in St. Louis Catholic church, Dorchester, for Eugene A. Zaborowski, 19, who died Saturday of injuries suffered in a traffic accident near Melrose. The Rev. Father Philip T. Weller officiated at the rites, and interment was in the Gilman cemetery. Pallbearers were Joseph Zaborowski and E. Zaborowski, cousins, and Jerry Reynolds, Alfred Scheiber, Howard Bedroske, and Jerome Ludwig.

The body lay in state at the Fuchsgruber Funeral Parlor until time of the funeral service.

Eugene was killed at about 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, when the motorcycle he was riding went out of control and crashed into a tree after he was blinded by lights of an oncoming car. The accident occurred at the junction of Highways 54 and 108. Miss Margaret Gullickson, 19, La Crosse, who was riding with him, is hospitalized at La Crosse, with a fractured arm, cuts and bruises.

Eugene Arthur Zaborowski, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Zaborowski, was born at Gilman Feb. 9, 1929, and moved to Dorchester with his parents in 1946. He graduated from Dorchester High School in 1947, and after working with his father for a year moved this spring to La Crosse where he was employed.

Surviving besides his parents, are three sisters, Mrs. Melvin Grewe and Mrs. Louise Warns, Dorchester, and Mrs. Lester Green, La Crosse. His three brothers preceded him in death: Louis lost his life while serving with the United States Army in Burma during the war; Bernard died two years ago, and Eugene, who died in infancy.
