Funeral Friday #1 ~ Westin Funeral Card

Since I have scanned so many funeral cards and obituary's lately I have decided to post these items on Fridays, hence the title Funeral Friday. Some of these may not actually pertain to my family, however I wish to share what I have as they may be helpful to someone. Unfortunately, most of the newspaper obits do not list a date of print nor the title of the newspaper. I will try to give location and dates that may be helpful as I can.

In Memory Of
Jonas August Westin
December 3, 1884 --July 9, 1959
Services July 11, 1959
11:00 A.M.

Salas Brothers
Funeral Chapel

Rev. R.E. Segerhammar, Officiating
Richard Ryder, Vocalist
Bernice Smith, Organist

Eric Bystrom           Henry Perkins 
H.E. Bystrom        Birger Wickstrom 
Burt Ravizza        Ted Linden

Interment : Masonic Cemetery 

The 23rd Psalm is printed on the left side of this card. As far as I know at this point and time, Jonas was not related to my family in anyway, but maybe a relation will one day find this useful.

Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!

  1. I like the Funeral Friday, what a great idea.

  2. Hi Brenda,

    When I posted this, It didn't dawn on me that there is a "Funeral Card Friday" theme that Miriam Midkiff from AnceStories and Dee Welborn, founder of Funeral Cards and Genealogy uses. There may be others also that I am unaware of. I chose to use Funeral Friday as I wanted to include obituaries also. Thank you for the comment and liking my idea. ;-)

  3. What a great idea! I have a bunch from my aunt that I have no idea who they are.

  4. I'll look forward to these! I love reading obituaries and funeral cards.

  5. Hi TennLady,

    Doing this I may even find out who some of these people are in relation to my family. Of course many of them will be family also.

    Hi Tree Detective,

    You are like me, I like reading them too!
