Child's Death is Probed
Police Thursday afternoon continued their investigation of the death of a 17-month-old girl.
Deborah Dawn Sadler, of 1009 Bluff St., died at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday at Allen Memorial Hospital.
According to Dr. Paul T. O'Keefe, county medical examiner, the girl died of a massive brain hemorrhage which could have been caused by a fall or a blow on the head.
Dr. O'Keefe said he tentatively has ruled the death as accidental.
Says Fell from Chair
Police said the girl's mother, Mrs. Lorraine Sadler, told them the baby fell from a chair Wednesday morning and hit her head.
She said the baby was unconscious after the fall and that she took her to the hospital.
Police, who said Thursday morning they had no evidence of foul play, intended to continue their investigation during the afternoon.
There are no other children in the family.
Funeral services for Deborah are planned at 2 p.m. Friday at Bethel United Presbyterian church. The Rev. Earl D. McCrae, pastor, will officiate.
The casket, which will be taken from the Kearns-Dykeman Chapel to the church at 12:30 p.m., will not be opened at any time.
Born in Waterloo
The girl was born here July 9, 1964, daughter of Charles and Lorraine Spiering Sadler.
Surviving besides the parents are the maternal grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. Robert C. Spiering, 911 W. 2nd St.; the maternal great-grandmothers, Mrs. Claire Lowe, Casper, Wyo., and Mrs. Matilda Kolashefsky, Madison, S.D., and the paternal great-grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Irving Sadler, Jacksonville, Wis.
