Rasmus Finnestad death

The 3rd son of Ole and Mari Finnestad, Rasmus, died September 5, 1945 in Everett Washington. He and wife Carrie have a headstone at the Saskatchewan River Church Cemetery.

After speaking with Rasmus' granddaughter, Carmen Hurd, I was told that Rasmus' wife, Carrie, wanted to be buried in Saskatoon, Canada so her body was shipped via train to Saskatchewan for burial.

According to Carmen, Rasmus did not want to be buried in Canada so he is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Everett, Washington.

Carmen also stated she believes Rasmus' sister, Mary was also buried at Evergreen Cemetery. She will check on that and let me know. If she is, I would then have the "final resting" information of all 11 of Ole and Mari's children.
