The Ogden Reporter 5-2-1907:
Thursday, the 25th of this month, shall long be remembered as a mornful [sic] day in the history of the Swedish people in Ogden and especially so to our beloved family, R. Storesund, well known to all. On that day death came to their daughter Olga Elizabeth and took her away from us all, after a week's sickness. She had been in Des Moines for the last few months, and, as it seems came home to die. Olga was born the 14th day of April 1891, and died the 25th day of April 1907. The funeral was held at the Swedish Mission church last Sunday forenoon. She was well liked by all who knew her, and a large number of friends followed her remains to their last resting place at Glenwood. Olga was a Christian and was not afraid of death. Her last words were "Do no [sic] cry mamma; I am going home. God bless you all." Therefore, Rev. Strom selected Rom. 8, 17-18 for his sermon.

There shall be no sorrow there,
Soon will our Saviour from Heaven appear,
Sweet in the hope and its power to cheer;
All will be changed by a glimpse of his face.
This is the goal at the end of our race!
Oh, what a change, Oh, what a change.
Whenst shall see His wonderful face!
Oh, what a change, Oh, what a change.
When I shall see his face.
