Mrs William Lahtinen (Anna Sylfvén), 26, was born in America her parents having settled there from Finland. She had a brother in Hancock, MI.
Anna boarded the Titanic at Southampton with her husband Rev William Lahtinen. They had been visiting Kemi, in northern Finland in order to help their friend, Lyyli Silvén who was immigrating to America. Now they were returning, with Miss Sylvan to the home they were building in Minneapolis, MN.
After the Titanic collided with an iceberg, Anna had initially boarded a lifeboat, but decided that she wanted to stay with her husband. Miss Silvén, however, got in a boat and was rescued. She later told that Anna Lahtinen had looked very nervous, while William had calmly smoked a cigar. Neither of their bodies were found.
