Tombstone Tuesday - Nystrom

Ingrid A. (Olsson) Nystrom
1905 - 2005

 Ingrid Nystrom was a beloved friend of mine. She loved me and loved my family. She taught my youngest son to say 'I love you' in Swedish. Her life began in Sweden; included travel across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States (not, thankfully, on the Titanic, though the family came close); life in California, where she lost her beloved husband in 1956; and a final move to Missouri. Living just over 100 years, Ingrid not only experienced a lot, but also influenced many. She has a large and loving posterity. I feel privileged to have known her.
