Mrs Arthur Cook (Selena Rogers), 22, a newlywed from Oxford, England boarded the Titanic at Southampton. She had left her husband to visit relatives in New York.
During the voyage she shared a cabin (F-33) with Mildred Brown, Amelia Lemore, and Elizabeth Nye.
After the collision on the night of Sunday April 14th Mildred Brown was very reluctant to get up even when Swane and her room mates encouraged warned her of the danger. Only when Selena Rogers exclaimed that she was surely the only person on the entire ship to remain in bed, did she stir.
She was rescued in lifeboat 14 and sat next to Leah Aks as the boat was lowered and the two women remained close after their rescue by the Carpathia.
Mrs Cook was later joined in America by her husband, they settled in Pennsylvania where she became an officer in the Daughters of the King organization. She was also an active member of her church and the local history society. She died in 1964.
