    History On 27 December 1956, the family was on their way to visit Gladys' sister for Christmas, when a drunk driver hit them head on. Danny was thrown from the vehicle and killed. Loy's foot went through the floor board trying to break, and he suffered a broken jaw, foot, and other minor injuries. Gladys was the only conscious person after the accident, and crawled up the bank to the road side to flag down help. She had neck and back pain for the rest of her life. Both she and Barbara were originally pronounced dead at the hospital. Rodney had a broken leg. Barbara had a broken jaw and leg. Jimmy had a skin graft performed to his severe head wound. Mary had minor injuries. The family stayed with their grandmother Fisk after the accident while those in the hospital were recovering. None of them were able to attend the funeral of Danny.

    Before she died, she wrote: "I was born Custer Co. NE April 5, 1927. We moved to Otoe Co. In May 1933 when I was in 1st grade. I finished 8th grade in a country school named Mudturtle College - went 4 years to Burr High School. Was out of school for one years, then in the summer of 1945, I passed the 16 teachers exam and went to a special 12 week course at Peru State Teachers College and got my teachers certificate. I taught the first year south of Burr in Johnson Co. The next two years I taught Distr. 81 in Otoe Co.

    I got married June 19, 1948. We lived in Syracuse for a couple of months and moved to Crofton, NE. Loy worked for Roberts Construction C. Barbara was born March 27, 1949. In June we moved to Pawnee City, NE. Then in winter we moved back to Crofton. In March we moved to Brownlee, NE in Cherry Co. Loy worked for Cherry Co. Rod was born April 23, 1950. Jim was born June 17, 1951 - both boys were born in Valentine Hospital. In the summer of 1951, we moved back to Crofton, where Loy got a job with Knox Co. In the summer of '52, we moved to a farm near Bloomfield, where Loy continued to work for Knox Co. In fall '52, he went to work for List & Clark on the Gavin Point Dam. We bought a trailer house and parked it in Chet's yard. Linda was born Jan 29, 1953. When she was 6 wks old we moved to Oklahoma City, living in the trailer house. We moved the trailer to Spencer, OK. We moved to Pickstown, SD where Loy worked on the Ft. Randall Dam with List & Clark. We moved to Red Cloud, NE when Barb was in kindergarten" - This was all she had written before she died.
