Possibly could Ruth Becker have been wheeling her brother on A Deck and looked into the Palm Court/Verandah Cafe? I mean I don't know if at any time in the voyage 2nd class passengers were allowed in that area... they had big huge windows.

I suppose my question doesn't implicate a new thread, but I know a single interview of Ruth Becker, the one that appears in the recent Cameron's DVD (the one she's wearing a red shirt. Is there any registers of the interview's date? I'm interested in other interviews and conferences she gave at old age.

Joao, it is possible that the same interview was included in "Death of a Dream/The Legend Lives On". My guess is that it was sometime in the late 1980s, after the Titanic was found.
Ruth had died before "Death of a Dream/The Legend Lives On" first aired.

Ruth also was interviewed after September 1, 1985. She was another survivor who wished that the wreck site be left alone. She is also the last survivor to have had her ashes scattered at the wreck site.

She died in July 6 and I did one minute silence for her death at 9.00am. She was a nice lady!

Yeah, I heard she had a son who lived in Mexico. Don't know if he's still alive!

I bought a VHS copy of the A & E documentary on Titanic Death of a Dream / Legend lives on. That was before 1990, about two years after the ship was found.

I still feel a catch in my throat when Ms. Becker-Blanchard broke down describing the cries of the women.

Hi Marilyn,

The A&E documentary was done in 1994.​

Hi Jason,

I need a new pair of glasses. Why do they put the copyright in small print. It looked like 1988.

Maybe it happened on Sunday where they went to mass and maybe they attended the mass on the first-class so Ruth probably saw the first class dining room(Well, I read the book Titanic Crossing by Barbara Williams.)
