Marjorie Pye 18 months old boarded Lusitania as 2nd class passenger with her mother Charlotte. Marjorie and her mother were seen in the 2nd class dining room eating lunch when the torpedo struck. When Charlotte and Majorie stepped into a lifeboat, the boat tilted and Marjorie gave a terrible scream and both fell in the freezing Atlantic Ocean and were pulled underwater. The Suction caused them to be separated. Charlotte somehow survived the disaster but Marjorie was lost and her body was recovered.
