Edith Russell (Rosenbaum)


Edith Russell was a first class passenger on Titanic.  On the night of the disaster she was saved by boarding lifeboat number 11 along with her lucky pig!  She was at first reluctant to leave the ship, not quite believing the severity of the situation. 


Click on the link below to listen to her recollections of that awful night and how her lucky pig served to calm the children who were on the lifeboat with her.
