Transcribed into English:

One year after the passing of Mrs. Lundin, death came to Mrs. Anna Bengtson, born in Farlof's parish, Skane, Sweden, Oct. 29, 1870. Coming to America in 1887, she settled in Detroit, Minn. On April 2, 1898, she was married to Elof Bengtson, and in 1910, the family moved to Crow's Landing. They joined the Nazareth Congregation in Oct. 23rd., 1914. At the time of her passing, she was 43 years, 11 months, and 24 days. Pastor W. Magnuson held an English service from the altar of the church on I Cor. 15:42-44 and a Swedish service on II Tim. 4: 7, 8. Remains were laid to rest in the Turlock Citizen's Cemetery.

May she rest in peace until the resurrection morning.

Church organist: Mrs. Hannah Norquist."
