Lorena was the daughter of Arthur Spring (also know as Adolf Karlsson Källström), 1878-1969, who was married to Selma Victoria Alexandersdotter Wargström, 1881-1956. (Selma was my mother's sister).

Hasse,

She was my last remaining first cousin and I have many happy memories of her. Here is her obituary.. they didn't mention she was born 9 Oct. 1905.
