MEDIAPOLIS (AP) -- Mrs. Harvey Ashby, 29, of rural Wapello was killed outright late Monday when her car collided head on with a semi on U-S 61 north of here, the Highway Patrol said.
The truck driver, Gerald D. Morgan, of Moline, Illinois, uninjured, told officers he was proceeding south when he observed the car in which Mrs. Ashby was alone weaving from side to side. No charges were filed.
Mediapolis firemen were called to the scene to flush a large quantity of fuel oil from the heavily-traveled highway.
Mrs. Ashby, the former Edith O'Neill was born July 16, 1939, the daughter of Daniel and Mary O'Neill.
She married Harvey Ashby December 7, 1960, at Mediapolis.
Survivors include her husband; four children, all at home, Daniel, Kathryn, Johanna and Kelli: four brothers, William O'Neill of Colorado, James and Robert O'Neill both of New London, and Thomas O'Neill of Mt. Pleasant; one sister, Kathryn O'Neill of New London.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday at the Dudgeon-McCulley Funeral home, Wapello. Burial will be in the Wapello cemetery.
