Dorothy L. Duerr was crossing the street at the Garden Terrace apartment complex when she was struck by a car driven by 52-year-old Robert Taffin, also of North Arlington, around 4:15 p.m. Friday, police said.

She was taken to University Hospital in Newark, where she succumbed to her injuries on Saturday.
