Mrs. Mary (Mowad) Nackid, 184 Meriden Rd., who was among the survivors when the Titanic sank, died yesterday in St. Mary's Hospital after a long illness. Mrs. Nackid was the widow of Said Nackid.
Mrs. Nackid, her husband and infant daughter were among those who left the Lebanese colony aboard the giant liner on her maiden voyage April 14, 1912 to New York. All three survived the sinking which took an estimated 1,500 lives. The daughter has since died.
Mrs. Nackid was born in Lebanon, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Michael Mowad. She is survived by three sons, John, Anthony, and Frederick, all of Waterbury; and three brothers, Buddy and James of Lebanon, and Michael of Argentina.
The funeral will be held tomorrow at 8:15 a.m. from Mulville Funeral Home, 270 West Main St., to SS Peter and Paul Church for a solemn high Mass at 9 o'clock. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home today from 2 to 5 and 7 to 10 P.M.
Waika "Mary" Nakid
