Obituary Add details

Rhoda Abbott boarded Titanic as 3rd class with her 2 sons Rossmore (16) and Eugene (13). The family was asleep when Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 PM. Eugene and his brother sensed an adventure and went to go up to the boat deck, but their mother was cautious. A steward told them everything was fine. Eugene and his brother were distressed when they were sent back to their bunks. At 12:15 a steward shouted "All passengers on deck with a life jacket!" Eugene, his mother and brother dressed and put on their life jackets. They followed a crowded hallway. They passed through an open watertight door which had an open stairway which lead to the upper decks. They stayed with 3rd class men, women and children in the 2nd class area. Only women and small children were allowed to pass through the gate, but Eugene and his brother managed to pass the gate along with their mother. The 3 climbed a steel ladder and were led forward. As they went forward, distress rockets began firing. The family managed to reach lifeboat Collapsible C one of the last to be lowered. The mother was allowed to enter, but Eugene and his brother were not. The mother stepped back to join her 2 sons. The Abbott family among other passengers and crew waited for Collapsible A to be lowered, but people were swept from the deck instantly. Eugene and his brother held on their mother and were swept by the freezing Atantic ocean.
