Miss Constance Willard
Miss Constance Willard, 20, was on born 6th June, 1890, the daughter of David Willard and Cora Bay. She had a brother, and two sisters Jean and Irma.
Miss Willard, who lived in Duluth, Minnesota, boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a first class passenger (Ticket Number 113795, £26 11s).
At first, Miss Willard refused to get into a lifeboat, and so an exasperated officer said, "Don't waste time--let her go if she won't get in!" But eventually, Miss Willard got aboard. She was rescued, probably in lifeboat 8 or lifeboat 10.
Constance Willard never married, she died on 25th April, 1964 in California. Her sister Irma McCall died in Long Beach, California in 1976 just short of her 77th birthday.
