Emily Ryerson, her husband Arthur Ryerson, and her three children were traveling in France when in 1912 when they received word that their oldest had passed away in a car accident. They decided to take the RMS Titanic back home for the funeral and then tragedy happened. Emily and her three children survived the night the RMS Titanic sank, but her husband, unfortunately, did not make it and was never found.
