Mrs. Dorothy Sausman was buried Saturday in Breman. A former radio dispatcher in the Portage police department, she died last Wednesday as a result of injuries sustained in a car-truck collision near South Bend.
Mrs. Sausman was en route to visit her mother when she lost control of her car on Ind. 2 3 1/3 miles west of the city. The car skidded across the pavement and the grass divider on the four-lane highway and was struck by a pick-up truck.
The accident occurred at 2:15 p.m. Her chest was crushed in the accident; she was dead on arrival at South Bend Memorial Hospital.
The diver of the truck, Richard Kinderman, of LaPorte, was unable to avoid the collision. He was not injured.
Mrs. Sausman had been a Portage resident for 13 years, and had worked with the police department since November, 1959. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Culver, and the White Shrine of Gary.
She lived at 10113 E. 25th Avenue and was 54 years old.
She is survived by three daughters, Helen Kilmer of Portage, Janice and Ruth Sausman at home; five sons, James. R., Thomas M., William G., and Larry S. all of Portage, and Terry D., serving with the U.S. Army in Korea.
Also, her mother, Mrs. Rose Carl, and a sister, Myrtle Clouse, both of south Bend; and a brother, Floyd Carl of Phoenix, Ariz.
There was a White Shrine service Friday. The funeral was Saturday afternoon at the First Christian Church in East Gary. Rev. Ariel Brady officiating. Burial was in the Breman Cemetery by the Olson and Reiser Chapel, East Gary.
