About Beatrice Wilhelmina Witherbee (La Touche)
Mrs Beatrice Witherbee-Brown
- RMS Lusitania survivor
Beatrice Witherbee (1890 – 1977), 24, was traveling aboard Lusitania with her mother Mary Brown and son Alfred Witherbee, Jr.. The family was relocating from New York City, United States, to London, England, where she and her husband Alfred, Sr. had recently set up residence. During the Lusitania sinking, Beatrice survived but lost both her mother and son. She subsequently refused to talk the disaster, so the exact details of her experience during the sinking are not known.
