This is a story about Letta Bardwell and it’s been told in her obituary because there are 24 days left to Halloween and it’s a fitting place to lay it and her to rest.


Letta Bardwell, the daughter of the late Carmen Dorstand and Obadiah Dorstand was not born, she was spawned by the forces of darkness at an abandoned asylum for the criminally insane called  Morin Creekside on November 1st, 1910.

Her beloved parents summoned her from the morgue in a ritual involving human sacrifice- and after calling her forward on several  failed occasions they were successful at 12:01 on All Souls Day.

Letta was an active member of the Girl Scouts of America where she  excelled  in archery, sewing and cooking. As a result of her early training with the  Girl Scouts Letta became the prime suspect in several unsolved murder cases involving cannibalism, grave robbing and assaults involving high speed projectiles and fire.

She was also a gifted artist and a talented writer and  traveled all around the world, but after losing her right eye and suffering burns and a serioius chest injury  during a trip to Romania in 1960 in a fall,  she gave up her travels and threw herself into volunteer work in our community- where she gave help and comfort to our socieities less fortunate and tortured souls.

Her life will be remembered with reverence by her children- Cesya, Theresina and Mattias who’s whereabouts to this day are unknown but as per her last words, she called out to them and without a doubt they will return to the town where she brought them into this world, piece by piece.

Letta was proceeded in death by her husband ( four times to be exact )  Galen Bardwell, by her sister in law Julia Morin and her husband Parker, whose untimely deaths by attack by persons and animal unknown at the Open Grave Traveling Sideshow  has been the inspiration of several horror movies since  the tragedy in 1948.

Letta’s parents left this world shortly after she turned 16, but no one knows where they went. It’s assumed they went back to the Asylum and have been in residence there, off and on,  over the years
