Kathleen M. Black, 69, a Washinton area resident since 1931 and a member of local bridge clubs, was fatally injured Nov. 14 in a car accident near Fort Myers, Fla.
A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said Mrs. Black was riding in a car driven by her husband, Revus R., when the vehicle was struck by an oncoming tractor-trailer that swerved to avoid an automobile that was slowing to a stop. They said the accident occurred on Rte. 80 about 12 miles east of Fort Myers.
Mrs. Black was killed and her husband seriously injured. Police said the driver of the tractor-trailer had been charged with failure to use due care.
The Blacks, who had been married for 45 years and who were longtime residents of Oxon Hill, were visiting a son, Ernest T., when the accident occurred.
Mrs. Black was a native of Halifax, England. She came to the United States with her family at the age of nine and was reared in Erie, Pa. She was a former employe of the Veterans Administration.
She was a member of the Camp Springs and Oakcrest Duplicate Bridge Clubs and Oxon Hill United Methodist Church.
Besides her husband and Ernest T. Black, survivors include two other sons, Alex G., of Mill Shoals, Ill., and James R., of Laurel; a daughter, Nancy K., of Oxon Hill; a sister, Ivy McIntyre of Albuquerque, N.M., and two grandchildren.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the American Heart Association.
