When Hulda left Sweden she was travelling under her maiden name of Löfqvist. After the disaster she got confused with the Klaséns from Fliserys, Småland.
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 Hulda Amanda Adolfina Veström. The niece's father lived in USA and it is likely that Klasén was taking Miss Veström to her father.
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.
