Funeral services for Mrs. Catherine E. Crosby, 72, widow of Captain E. G. Crosby, founder of the Crosby Steamship line, who died Thursday at her home, 474 Marshall St., will be held Saturday, 2 PM, at the residence, with entombment at Fairview mausoleum.
The death of Mrs. Crosby recalls the Titanic disaster, Apr. 14, 1912. She was a passenger with Capt. Crosby and their daughter, Harriette, when Titanic struck an iceberg and went down off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. The mother and daughter were saved, but Capt. Crosby went down with the ship. His body was recovered a few weeks later and brought to Milwaukee for burial.
Mrs. Crosby was born in Waterloo, N.Y., Oct. 25, 1847, and came to Milwaukee about twenty-five years ago.
She is survived by her daughter, Harriette Crosby, and a son, Fred G. Crosby.
