Willard Young killed
Tragedy hit early in 1936. On January 30th, Willard Young was struck and killed by a fast moving train.
Left with three children (ranging from a second grader to a high school senior) and a business with which she was unfamiliar, Eva successfully combined the role of housewife, mother, and business woman. With the help and cooperation of the store's employees, International Harvester, and her family, the business grew to one of the most active, if not the largest, in the area.
