Bertha Newstrom1

F, #21016
     Bertha Newstrom married Donald Henry Bezanson, son of Calvin Bezanson and Florence M. Haverstock.1 It is worth investigating whether she went by the name "Birdie", and if so, an SSDI entry may refer to her.2

     Donald Henry Bezanson and Bertha Newstrom were mentioned in an article that appeared in The Winona Republican-Herald (Winona, Minnesota) on 14 May 1947:
Bethel Treasurer Bound Over for $2,000 Shortage

St. Paul—AP—Richard Golling, state public examiner, said Tuesday an audit of the accounts of Donald H. Bezanson, village treasurer of Bethel, in Anoka County, during 1945 and 1946, discloses a shortage after certain repayments still totalling $2,000.

Golling quoted Bezanson as saying he found it necessary to use village funds to meet his living expenses and doctor bills and make a full accounting to the Standard Oil Company which employs him to sell and deliver bulk gasoline, including a repayment of $600 in company funds which he lost while on a collecting tour.

Copies of the report were sent to Bethel officials and L.D. Cutter, Anoka countr attorney. Golling said Bezanson was bonded for $2,000.

"Bezanson specifically admitted misappropriating funds to cover the loss of $600 in money belonging to the Standard Oil Company. Mrs. Bezanson also admitted taking money from the place where the village funds were kept for the purpose of paying household expenses."

When Bezanson became aware late in 1946 that the shortage in his villae accounts was "substanial," the report continues, "he says he sold his Plymouth card for $700. He obtained $500 from the sale of bonds and an addition $500 on a loan from the First State Bank of [illegible]."

This $1,700 was turned over to the village and another repayment of $737.70 on May 10, 1947, reduce the shortage to an even $2,000," Golling said.3
