Titanic Victim Margaret Rice-- Part 4: She Perished Along With Her Five Sons

From Hub Pages:  The Titanic Irish Mother Margaret Rice and Children Died When the Ship Sank.

Two boats, the PS "America" and PS "Ireland" took boarding passengers from Queenstown Pier out to the Titanic.

Boarded April 11, 1912:

Albert 10, George 8, Eric 7, Arthur 4 and Eugene 2 1/2.

In 1998, a memorial stone in Cobh (Queenstown in 1912) for the Titanic passengers who boarded there depicts Margaret Rice and her five sons.

On April 15, 2009, a monument was dedicated in Spokane Cemetery at Fairmount Memorial Gardens for Margaret and her sons as well as three other Spokane residents who died on the Titanic.
