Died in the sinking/Body Not Recovered


Stina Viola Palsson, 3 years old, was travelling to Chicago with her mother Nils Palsson and siblings Torborg, Paul, and Gosta. They were to join their father, Nils, who had moved to the United States two years before the rest of the family. The Palsson’s boarded the Titanic at Southampton.

Sadly, the whole family died in the sinking, and their bodies, if recovered, were never identified. Hopefully the family was able to stay together until the very end.
