Pleasant Valley Township Woman Fatally Hurt In Cedar Falls Mishap

A 27-year-old rural Parkersburg woman, Mrs. James (Suzanne) Everts, died in a Cedar Falls hospital at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, an hour after she received head and chest injuries in a three vehicle collision on 27th Street about 1 1/2 miles west of Cedar Falls.

Also fatally injured in the crash was Mrs. Oakkie (Ruth) Mehmen, 47, of Cedar Falls.

A Cedar Falls man, David Shephard, 19, has been charged with manslaughter and OMVUI in connection with the accident.

According to authorities, Shephard attempted to pass a pickup driven by Mrs. Mehmen's husband and crashed head-on into a station wagon driven by Mrs. Everts.

Mrs. Everts' 10-month-old son, Corey, and a second passenger in the Everts vehicle, Mrs. Carrie Everts, 49, of Parkersburg, are hospitalized in Waterloo.

Mehmen and a passenger in the Shephard car, Karen Ceilley of Cedar Falls, were taken to a Cedar Falls hospital.

Shephard sustained only minor injuries and was not hospitalized. He was being held in Black Hawk county jail on $10,325 bond at last report.

The Dike emergency ambulance was summoned to the scene on a mutual aid call, and transported two of the injured to local hospitals.

Funeral services for Suzanne Everts were held at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Pleasant Valley Reformed Church. Burial was in the church cemetery.

She is survived by her husband; a son, Corey James; her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dale Schutz of Grand View; a brother, Carl Bartenhagen of Urbandale; two sisters, Mrs. Keith (Elaine) Grouwinkel of West Liberty, and Mrs. Lindy (Joan) Woods of Grand View; a step brother, Robert Schutz of Columbus Junction; and maternal grandmother, Mabel Hardman of Wapello.
