The Eberhardts, of 3035 Old Glenview Rd., were among three persons killed last Wednesday evening when a car driven by Mr. Eberhardt collided with a Chicago and North Western Ry. passenger train at a grade crossing one mile south of Aniwa, Wis.

Mrs. Eberhardt's sister-in-law, Mrs. Johanna C. Brunner of Chicago, also was killed.

The accident occurred about dusk on Shawano County Road ZZ. The Shawano County sheriff's office says the railroad crossing was marked by a gate but no lights or warning bells.

Mrs. Eberhardt, 59, had worked as a part-time department store employee.

The Eberhardts are survived by two children, Donald and Dianne, and three grandchildren. Mrs. Eberhardt is survived by one brother, Frank, and a sister, Mrs. Mildred Murphy. Mr. Eberhardt is survived by his brother, Edward.

Burial will be at Acacia Park, 7800 W. Irving Park Road., Chicago, following today's services.
