Erma (Laubach) BRODHEAD
(Easton Express - Easton, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, September 14, 1959)

Palmer Woman Killed As Car Lurches Back
Mrs. Harry Brodhead Victim In Garage At Her Home
Mrs. Erma BRODHEAD, 54, of 2705 Stephens St., Palmer Township, was injured fatally in a freek accident in the garage at the rear of her home last night. She was the widow of Harry BRODHEAD.
Palmer Township police said Mrs. BRODHEAD was pinned against a pillar in the garage when the car from which she had just alighted lurched backwards. This happened, they said, as the victim's daughter, Miss Evelyn M. BRODHEAD, 29, attempted to set the automatic gear shift in "park" position.
Mrs. BRODHEAD was pronounced dead on arrival at Easton Hospital by Dr. Ward GYPSON an interne. Fred L. ASHTON, deputy Northampton County coroner, said death apparently was caused by a fracture at the base of the skull.
According to police, Mrs. BRODHEAD and her daughter were in the car as it entered the garage. Mrs. BRODHEAD, who had been driving, got out of the vehicle.
Police gave this version of the accident: Mrs. BRODHEAD, who was standing in the garage on the friver's side of the car, told her daughter to start the engine. The daughter complied.
Mrs. BRODHEAD then told the daughter to put the gear shift lever into the park position. Her daughter at first declined, citing that fact that the car might move or buck as the lever crossed from neutral position throught reverse to get to the park position. When Mrs. BRODHEAD insisted, the daughter moved the shift lever.
The car lurched when the shift passed into reverse. The door on the driver's side, which had been left standing open, caught Mrs. BRODHEAD, knocked her against the pillar and pinned her there.
The Suburban Rescue Co., Palmer Township, took the victim to the hospital.
Patrolmen Nicholas DiVIETRO and Charles WENNER investigated.
Police said today that no charges will be filed against the daughter.
Mrs. BRODHEAD was born Aug. 17, 1905, in Easton, a daughter of Mrs. Cora M. JUDD LAUBACH, of Palmer Heights, and the late Wesley B. LAUBACH. She was a member of Memorial United Church of Christ, Wilson. Her husband died Dec. 7, 1957.

Mrs. MoDavis Named Delegate To War II Mothers Convention
Mothers of World War II, Unit 14, at a meeting last night at the Legion home, heard a talk by Mrs. Priscilla PFEIFFER, a member of Unit 1, Allentown, and national treasurer. She spoke of the work of various units, of the progress they are making and the achievements for boys and girls in service.
Mrs. PFEIFFER said that chartered busses will take all mothers interested to the national convention at Indiana. Any member of the locak unit desiring to go is asked to contact Mrs. Ada STARNER before May 1. She said that although the War is over it does not mean that the work of the mothers is completed. Mrs. Adelle MoDAVIS, president, will attend the national convention, and Mrs. Ruth HESTER, is an alternate.
Mrs. MoDAVIS presided. Prayer was given by Mrs. Eileen ROSENKRANZ, Mrs. Louise BABROWICH was admitted as a new member. Committee reports were given. Birthday anniversaries of two members were celebrated. Gifts were sent to three members in hospitals.
