On November 13, 1918, ninety-four years ago today, Anna Elizabeth (Stålberg) Lowenburg (1869-1918), my 2nd great grandmother, died in Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon. According to her death certificate, Anna died from bronchial pneumonia, which developed from influenza.
Anna was buried on November 16, 1918 in Milwaukie Pioneer Cemetery in Milwaukie, Clackamas Co., Oregon.
At the time of her death, Anna was married to her second (possibly third) husband, Emil Conrad Lowenburg (1875-1930), whom she married in about 1901 in Sweden. With Emil, she had five children. Prior to her marriage to Emil, she was married to Nils Johan Larsson Spolander (1872-1900), with whom she had a daughter before his death. Prior to her marriage to Nils, Anna had two sons out of wedlock, one son who died young and my 2nd great grandfather, Wilhelm Percy Wellin (1895-1977). Anna, Emil, and their children (including Wilhelm) immigrated to the United States in 1906.
