"HIT-RUN DRIVER KILLS MOTHER OF ALMENA LOMAX — Mrs. Genevieve B. Davis, 70, mother of former Los Angeles Tribune editor Almena Lomax, was fatally injured by a 19-year-old hit-and-run driver and died last week at General Hospital. Mrs. Davis, noted in the South and Midwest for her beauty, was also the mother of Gwendolyn Collier, wife of Alva Collier, Los Angeles probation officer and authority on juvenile delinquency control. She was struck in a marked crosswalk at 52nd St. and Western Ave., the impact shattering both legs, fracturing a shoulder and causing internal injuries. In an effort to save her life, one leg was amputated below the knee. The youth, whose name was not released by police, was apprehended a short while later, washing the blood from his car in a service station. Rites were conducted by the Rev. Harold M. Kingsley, lifelong friend of Mrs. Davis, from the View Park Utter-McKinley Mortuary Saturday, with burial at Forest Lawn." (California Eagle, Los Angeles, Calif., 20 Dec. 1962, p. 1, col. 6, and p. 4, col. 6.)
