John Mattson obituary

Deaths

With deep sorrow we hereby let it be known
My dear husband and our father
JOHN EDWARD MATTSON
Born in Malax, Finland on the 20th of December 1884,
Passed away in New York on the 13th of August 1947
After a long, patient suffering.
Mourned by wife, a son, three stepchildren,
a brother in Escanaba, Mich., three brothers
and two sisters in Finland as well as other
relatives and friends.

Amanda and Melvin Mattson


The earth’s disquiet yields in face of
Lasting peace
Death reconciles all, heaven
Glorifies all
Although storms of life may rage
On land and sea
I will find a safe place in
The palm of God’s Hand
He protects me, He protects me
And all sorrow and distress disappear
He protects me, He protects me
In the palm of his Hand

(The obituary is written in old Swedish and the latter part of it is an old Swedish psalm. A word for word translation leaves a lot to be desired. The rhyme is, of course, lost but I hope you get the meaning of it. Signed Britt Mollerstedt)
