Mrs. Hahn's husband, George D. Hahn, aged 31 years, well-known amateur golfer, driver of the one car, is in a critical condition in the Jameson Memorial hospital, with a fractured skull, fracture of the left ankle and multiple lacerations of the head.
Also in the Jameson hospital are: Jay Buchanan, aged 24 years, of 1330 Capital avenue, San Francisco, Calif., fracture of right lower leg, fracture of right collarbone and concussion. He has been here on a vacation visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clare R. Buchanan, of 1420 West Washington street.

Miss Patricia McBride, aged 30 years, of 461 Neshannock avenue, an occupant of the car driven by Hahn, suffered abrasions of both legs below the knee. She was treated and discharged.
In the New Castle hospital is Matthew Vukovich, aged 32 years of 109 Jefferson street, Campbell, O., fracture of the left leg just above the knee.
According to the facts as learned by state police and Coroner Charles E. Allen, who investigated the crash, Mr. and Mrs. Hahn and the later's brother, Jay Buchanan, with Miss McBride, were returning from a dance at Yankee Lake, near Brookfield, O.
They were traveling east on route 422 at a point about four and a half miles west of the city. Hahn was driving his brother-in-law's car and had just passed another vehicle.
Vekasy, driver of the other machine, and the occupants of the Vekasy car, Vukovich and Misses Stanar and Rainey, all claimed that they were in the right lane, traveling west, when the car driven by Hahn failed to return to its side of the road after passing another car. When they realized that it was continuing over towards their side it was too late to avoid the collision and the cars collided, virtually head-on. They were just out for a ride, they stated.
The car driven by Hahn was knocked across the highway, directly opposite the point of impact, it is stated, while the Vekasy car went off the highway on the other side of the road.
Ambulances were summoned and brought the injured to the hospital here, Mrs. Hahn being found to be dead on arrival at the Jameson Memorial hospital. She sustained a fractured skull, fractures of the lower jaw and severe lacerations of the forehead and lower lip., with a possible broken neck.
All but Mr. Hahn were getting along nicely today, it was reported at the hospitals. He is in a critical condition, however, and is not expected to survive.
Mrs. Hahn was born in New Castle July 15, 1919, daughter of Clair and Gertrude Sergeant Buchanan. She lived here all her life and was a clerk at the Moser Wallpaper and Paint company for 10 years.
Mrs. Hahn was a member of the Wesley Methodist church.
She leaves her husband, George D. Hahn; a son, Brian Jay Hahn, and brother and sister, Jay E. Buchanan of San Francisco, Calif., Mrs. Donald McCoy, this city; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clare Buchanan, this city, and grandmother, Mrs. L. M. Buchanan, of this city.
Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday at two p.m. from the Joseph B. Leyde mortuary, Highland at Winter, Rev. Everette F. Spring to be in charge.

Overcome by Heat

David Wheale
dies at the Shenango Valley Hospital Friday Morning
Another Victim who Will Recover

Thursday was hot. The thermometer at McKinley & Haley's drug store registered up in the nineties during the afternoon. There was considerable discomfort experienced by the new citizens who have not yet accustomed themselves to the lightening changes of atmospheric conditions to which New Castle is subjected, and there were several overcome by the heat.
David Wheale, a laborer employed at the New Castle Steel and Tin Plate works, was overcome during the afternoon. He was taken to the Shenango Valley Hospital where he died Friday morning.
The physicians attending Wheale saw that he must have been unconscious for at least an hour before he was found. His comrades who found him say that he was sitting down with his head fallen forward, as if asleep. They had noticed him some time before they tried to arouse him, but thinking that he only slept, they did not. Wheale's home was in Sharon. His son was summoned to the city Thursday evening, and will take the remains to Sharon for interment.
Patrick Rohrer, an employe of the Shenango Valley Steel company was also overcome by the heat of Thursday afternoon. He was taken to the Shenango Valley Hospital and was in a fair way to recovery Friday morning.
(This was a weekly newspaper at the time, and it is later noted in the December 30, 1895 issue that David "Wheel" died on the 29th of May, as described in the above story.)

Martha Elizabeth Dangerfield
Martha Elizabeth Dangerfield: born March 8, 1944 in Kirkwood, MO passed away unexpectedly and suddenly on April 18, 2012. She was a resident of Canyon Lake for the past twenty years. Her soft and gentle spirit will be missed by every person who met her.
Martha passed away peacefully on April 18, 2012 of natural causes related to COPD after tirelessly caring for her late partner, Phil Cook, over the past year until his death shortly before Easter. She said she was at peace and only complained of being tired and thought she "was getting sick with a cold."
Grave-side service, memorial and burial were held honoring Martha in Salt Lake City, Utah Saturday April 26, 2012.
Martha is succeeded by her daughter Pamela Pearson of New Part Beach, grand children: Jazmyn Carpenter of Chino Hills CA, Shyloh and Jake Jackson of Yorba Linda, CA as well as a sister, Ruth Stone, a brother Enoch Dangerfield and several nieces and nephews of Salt Lake City and Seattle.
Many will remember Martha as having painted whimsical Holiday greetings on local business windows in Canyon Lake, Sun City and nearby communities. She was artistic and worked fast-making "window painting" look easy. Most likely, Martha would have worn high heels and lace- even while painting these windows. She always "dressed up, as she loved looking her best. Her family and close friends remember Martha as the embodiment of love, caring and generosity. Caring for flowers, birds, animals or anything fragile in life gave Martha her greatest pleasure. She once made a living as a "home health care giver" in Salt Lake City and maintained close relationships with many who she cared for there during those years. Martha's hobby was shopping Canyon Lake's garage sales where she thoughtfully discovered treasures to give away to others.
