Miss Manca Karun
Miss Manca Karun, 4, from Austria-Hungary (modern Slovenia), was born in 1907. She boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg with her father Mr Franz Karun they were travelling to Galesburg, Illinois.
Franz and Manca were rescued in (probably) lifeboat 15.
About a year after the disaster the family returned to Austria-Hungary (Slovenia), Manca's four siblings later returned to the United States but Manca remained in Slovenia where she married Anton Juvan. They had four children: Toucka Juvan; Marjan Juvan (b. 1940, d. 1991); Anica Juvan, married Tone Kosnjek; and Lojzka Juvan (b. 1946) married Tone Zorman.
Manca made occasional visits to relatives in America, as reported in the local press of the time. She died in Slovenia in September 1971 some of her descendants still live in Milje, Slovenia.
