The 14 year old girl died Friday morning at the Rumford Community Hospital from her injuries.
Miss Glines, in company with Eda Roberts, Mrs. Kenneth Silver and her daughter, Ethelene was returning from a dance shortly after midnight when White’s car turned out to pass another car and hit the group, said authorities. It was snowing hard.
Mrs. Silver and her daughter received minor injuries. Miss Roberts was uninjured.
The accident occurred about 1 a. m. Thursday, following a dance in Andover.
White was driving toward Rumford Center from Andover with Livingston Dolloff and another youth as passengers.
Near the Ray Thurston residence in Andover he met some people walking in the road and turned out to pass them.
Further on he spied four women walking at the side of the road . As he approached them he turned the car to pass them, but the car skidded and the rear struck them, knocking three of them down.
They were Miss Glines, Mrs. Kenneth Silver and her daughter, Ethelene and Miss Roberts.
Miss Glines, who was seriously hurt, was taken to the office of the Andover physician, and later to Rumford Community Hospital where her condition Thursday was described as very serious. She was suffering from a fractured skull, and it was expected the injury would prove fatal, her physician said.
Mrs. Silver and her daughter sustained body injuries, but Miss Roberts was not hurt.
The night was stormy with a high wind.
Miss Glines, who was 14 years old last December, was a leader of the Girl Scout Patrol, a member of the Congregational Church choir and Sunday school, the Flying needle 4-H club and a freshman at the Andover high school.
Surviving are her father and mother, David and Grace Mitchell Glines; two sisters, Kathleen and Sally E. Glines; her grandparents, Mr. And Mrs. William Mitchell, with whom they lived, and her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Glines, Rumford.
The funeral services were held at the Congregational church Sunday at 2 p. m. Rev. George W. M. Keyes, pastor of the church, officiated.
The Girl Scouts attended in a body. The casket was banked with many beautiful flowers. The church was filled to capacity and the bearers, classmates of the deceased, were Norman Hall, Junior Poor, Stephen Richards and Homer Richards, Jr.
The body was placed in the receiving tomb at Rumford to await burial at Woodlawn cemetery, Andover, in the spring.
Among those attending from out of town were Mr. and Mrs. Brooks Stratton, Rumford Center, Supt. Of Schools, Sherman I. Graves, Mexico, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Dorion, Lockes Mills, Mr. and Mrs. Herschell Glines and son, Roland, Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Glines, Mr. and Mrs. Elwood Richardson, Mr. and Mrs. M. H.
