Eugene Matte, 71

Eugene Matte, 71, formerly of Potter Street,  passed away on Saturday, September 15, 2007 at the Eden Park Nursing Home in Rutland, Vt.

Born on Aug. 28, 1936 in Whitehall, he was the son of the late Herman R. and Edith Mae (Webster) Matte.

Eugene attended Whitehall High School.  He was a former custodian at the Old School Apartments on Williams Street and the Notre Dame des Victoiries Church in Whitehall until he retired.

He enjoyed bowling at the Elks and playing basketball at the Recreational Center with his former classmates.

Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his sister, Dorothy.   

He is survived by one brother, Larry Matte and his wife, Rosemary of Ticonderoga and one sister, Billie Mae Matte of Whitehall and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins in Vermont.

A funeral service was held earlier in the week at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams Street in Whitehall. Rev. Roberta Proper, Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Whitehall, officiated.

            Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation in Eugene’s name to the Whitehall United Methodist Church, 56 Greenmount Cemetery Lane, Whitehall, NY 12887.
