She took turns rowing the lifeboat with the other passengers and argued to return to the site and pick up more passengers.When she returned to the US, a reporter asked why she didn’t go down with the Titanic and she responded, “because I’m a Brown, we’re unsinkable.”
Maggie Brown - Most people will remember her from the Titanic movie, but according to our tour guide, she was quite as abrasive as Kathy Bates portrayed her. And she wasn't some backwater ignorant redneck. At the time of the Titanic sinking she spoke 6 languages and acted as a translator and advocate for the immigrant widows who survived the wreck.
