The New York Times of April 29th 1912 stated that Mrs. Rood had arrived on board the German liner Kaiserin Auguste Victoria. It identified her husband's cabin on board the Titanic as A-32. Mrs. Rood originally came from Denver, her husband Seattle.
Mrs. Rood travelled to Halifax, Nova Scotia where the recovered bodies were being taken, and wired a description of her husband to one of the ships in hopes that it could identify him should the body be found. It was not, and afterwards she placed flowers on the graves of all the unidentified dead after their burial in Halifax. She also sent flowers to all the churches in the city holding memorial services
