Mrs Hulda Kristina Klasén (or Clasén), 36, was born 18 March 1876, the daughter of Peter Edvard Löfqvist from Salmunds, Stånga, Bjärges, Vänge, Gotland Island, Sweden. She had a sister Emma Josefina Veström. Hulda Klasén had emigrated to USA on 17 October 1902, she lived in Los Angeles, California and worked as a dressmaker.
Hulda had been visiting Gotland and was now returning to Los Angeles with her niece
On Titanic, which she boarded at Southampton, she accompanied a group of Swedish third class passengers led by Thure Edvin Lundström.
Mrs Klasén died in the sinking, her body was never found.
The Mansion House Fund paid 1787.52 (£98) to her father and 1276.80 Kr (£70) to her sister. No damage claims were made as her father died before legal processes could start and the lawyers concluded that nobody else was dependent on her.
