On Palm Sunday, April 11, 1965 while in their car Mary Wolter, her two sons and husband were tossed by the tornado over 100 yards north of Rt. 14 near Keith Ave. "Our car started rocking back and forth. My husband yelled for me to grab one of our sons by the hand and he grabbed the other one. A station wagon in front of us had a boat attached to it, and my oldest son yelled, mommy look at the boat, it's flying! Then our car started rolling over and over, north of the highway. Its strange, but I didn't have time to be scared, or even time to think.
