Helen R. Ewachiw WMAR-TV clerk


A Mass of Christian burial for Helen Rose Ewachiw, a retired payroll clerk at WMAR-TV, will be offered at 9:30 a.m. today at St. Dominic's Roman Catholic Church, Harford Road and Gibbons Avenue.

Miss Ewachiw, who was 75, died of heart disease Wednesday at her home on Fairdel Avenue.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of Eastern High School. She worked for The Baltimore Sun before transferring to the television station in its early days, when both it and the newspaper were owned by the A. S. Abell Co. The station began broadcasting in 1947.

She retired about 10 years ago.

Before becoming a member of St. Dominic's Church, Miss Ewachiw attended St. Michael's Ukrainian Catholic Church in Baltimore.

She is survived by three sisters, Anne Ewachiw and Mary Budko, both of Baltimore, and Gloria Karolenko of Granite; and a brother, Eugene A. Ewachiw of Lutherville.
