Ida Sofia Strandberg

Miss Ida Sofia Strandberg

Miss Ida Sofia Strandberg, 22, lived with her widowed mother Sofia, a crofter, in bo (Turku), Finland. She was on her way from her home to New York. Like Karl Ivar Berglund and Alfred Gustafson, Ida travelled from the land Islands via Gothenburg, Sweden on the Calypso to Hull. She therefore came on the lists as a Swede. In White Star's list she is noted as coming from Croyem in Bulgaria and going to Mitral Perdarrichi 709 West Adam street Chicago, while the US Senate list more correctly gives her destination as New York.

Ida Strandberg died in the sinking, her body, if recovered, was never identified. 50 in compensation was later paid to her mother.
