According to Dawn Prior:
Svea was a sweet and loving, generous person but also very tough and strong if someone instigated something with her.  She loved sweets and baking as well as knitting and quilting.  She won a blue ribbon one year for a quilt at the Minnesota State Fair.  She never owned a car.  She loved to walk and sometimes took the bus.  Swede Hollow, where they immigrated to in St. Paul, is now a city park.  Ruins of some of the homes' foundations can still be seen here and there.  
My mom never took us to see Aina. I never got to meet Aina. Svea never mentioned her to me. She was never at any of Svea's family gatherings. I never got the chance to meet Svea or know her children. Svea never talked about her sister Aina to me, when she would tell me about growing up in Swede Hollow, or her younger life and she didn't invite Aina to family gatherings. Svea loved getting her children and grandkids together for summer picnics or at Christmas. Mother did say that Aina and Svea would get together once in a while, but for very short visits. I know they have been proud of their Swedish roots. Svea wanted to return to Sweden and see her hometown and relatives before she died. Svea told me, Karl obtained U.S. citizenship, but it was after Svea was born so Svea did not inherit it. She did not understand that she was not a U.S. citizen until she went down to apply for a passport  Svea loved cats and often took care of strays.  She had a small collection of cat figurines and a lamp which she left me that has a ceramic cat as the base of the lamp. Svea was the one I knew best and since Signe was a part of her life, until Signe died, I had heard bits and pieces about her. When I was very little, I visited Signe's Joe. My mom said she would visit their farm and feed the chickens when she was little. Svea had a lady in the neighborhood teach the older children Swedish folk dances that they would perform on Swedish Days in Minnihaha Park Svea took part in an event that became big for the labor movement in the United States. She worked at the factory and participated in the strike.  She told me that the police came and beat her and dragged her through the street for picketing. Svea used to love to go out and listen to the big bands when she was young and she had told me she dated a saxophonist for a while.  She also told me before Karl left he had done well with his shoe shop and built them a home off Randolph St. and Snelling Ave. in St. Paul.  My mom had shown me a photo of it once with Svea and Aina sitting on the steps both in dresses with big bows in their hair as young girls.I am sorry I do not know Swedish.  Svea taught me a couple of words when I was a child, but none of her children speak it.  My aunt Karen and mother told me Svea spoke it often with Signe though and was fluent. 
I lived in Minnesota until 1994.  I moved down to Florida after college.  I work for a neighboring city in the information technology department helping people with their equipment setups and issues. I love to travel and read.  I also have a hobby business making soaps and such, that I sell at craft shows.
