Fallen Brothers» Cynthia Verberg

Line of Duty Death      Our condolences to the Verberg family and the Clayton, Ohio Fire and Emergency Medical Service. Firefighter-EMT Cynthia Verberg, 47, an 18 year veteran with the Clayton Fire Department, OH, died Tuesday July 10, 2001. Cynthia was killed in a bizarre accident when a tree fell on top of the ambulance she was riding in. Cynthia and her partner had just stopped to check the flow of a fire hydrant Tuesday morning when a 2-ton section of an old beech tree broke off, crushing the cab of their ambulance. Cynthia was pinned in the wreckage and declared dead at the scene.

     Cynthia's partner, Mickey Retman was able to get to the radio and call for help. The tree limb had broken the vehicles antenna, but other crews checking hydrants heard their calls for help and rushed to the scene. Mickey was treated and released from Good Samaritan Hospital and returned to the scene about 10:30AM.

     Cynthia Verburg's viewing will be held on Thursday, July 12, from 3:00PM to 8:00PM at the Baker Hazel Funeral Home in Dayton, Ohio. Funeral Services with honors will be held Friday, 10:00AM at the Precious Blood Church on Salem Avenue.

     Our sister Cynthia left a husband, Doug, and two sons, Matt, and Brian. Two memorial funds have been established. Donations can be made to:
