Great Aunt survived Titanic- immediately became a nun
I don’t know much other than my great Aunt, Sister Patrick Joseph, was 3rd class Irish coming to US. The story is she had long red hair and one of the ship guys liked her and saved her. She was coming to NY to be w/her sister (my grama) and had made a pact w/God when she was saved from death to become a nun – which is exactly what she did. She taught school in a parish in Elmhurst Ilinois. My cousins,the Murnanes, attended the parish/school. “Sister Pat” did not appear to be a very happy person and my relatives in the parish said she was known to be very strict/mean. Although I knew her & knew she survived, she never spoke of her experience to the best of my knowledge. She’s dead now. I found her name on the list of survivors when The Titanic display was in Denver a few years ago. Her last name was “Kelly”.
BTW, I love Know Your Roots. I was disgusted to channel surf tonight (Fri. 5/24) & see NBC do a TOTAL poach/copy of “Know Your Roots” They have Rob Lowe on tonight. I’m thoroughly disappointed w/NBC & intend to contact them (Rob Lowe too), but you might check it out and sue for infringement. It’s a carbon copy in format… This was actually why i came to your website – to tell you.
