    gave birth to Anita 
    Address:
    868 Hollywood St. 
    • Anita Louise was born on November 3, 1931, in my parent’s home at 868 Hollywood St., Grand Rapids, Michigan. When I came home from school that day, they let me hold her. I was almost 10 years old, so she was like a little sister to me. A bed had been set up in the basement and they had put cement blocks under each leg of the bed; probably so that the doctor wouldn’t have to lean so far. This was strange to me. Anita’s father was Adam Fredericks, but I don’t remember seeing him there.
    Occupation Between 1933 and 1942  Detroit, Wayne, Michigan, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    was a secretary for the Property Management Department of Hannan Real Estate Exchange 
    • The Hannan Real Estate Exchange was located in the Detroit Free Press building on W. Lafayette Blvd. at the corner of Cass Ave. Evelyn earned about $100 per month working there.
    Residence 16 Jan 1933  Detroit, Wayne, Michigan, United States Find all individuals with events at this location 
    at 466 West Palmer 
    Accident 5 Mar 1934 
    • Evelyn was traveling from Grand Rapids, MI to Detroit, MI with a business associate from Hannan Real Estate Exchange of Detroit. At dusk, they encountered two trucks, facing in opposite directions with their lights out, the drivers conversing through their open windows.

      The driver of the car saw them at the last moment, braked hard and pulled to the left, causing the right side of the car, where Evelyn was sitting, to hit the tailgate of the truck. The tailgate came through the passenger window, and would have decapitated Evelyn had she not been thrown to the floor by the impact with the truck in the oncoming lane. She suffered a broken pelvis and collarbone, along with multiple other injuries, and was told by doctors for the next 11 years that she could not have any more children.

      Her father drove from Grand Rapids to see her in the hospital, and her future husband came from Detroit.

      The trucking companies involved were L&B Cartage Co. and Contract Cartage Co. There is evidence that Evelyn initiated a lawsuit against them. The exact site of the crash is unknown, but is believed to be Grand River Ave., near Portland, MI.
    Biography
    • Teenaged Evelyn charged some things on her father's charge account at the hardware store without asking. When he found out, he was furious and sister Wilma remembers him slapping Evelyn across the face several times.  It put the fear of God (and her father) in Wilma. Other than a spanking when deserved she doesn't remember him being that violent. He considered that she was stealing from the whole family. Wilma says she was a 'little devil' at times.
