Miss Daisy E. Minahan, 33, was born 9 January 1879 in Wisconsin, the daughter of Irish immigrants William B. Minahan and Mary Shaughnessy. Daisy worked as a school teacher and lived in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Daisy Minahan boarded the Titanic at Queenstown. Travelling as first class passengers, she, her brother William and sister-in-law Lillian occupied cabin C-78.
"I was awakened by the crying of a woman in the passageway." She recalled on 13 May 1912. Until the day she died she believed the crying woman was Madeleine Astor wife of John Jacob Astor, whose great-grandfather had once owned a considerable amount of land in Green Bay.
Lillian and Daisy were rescued in lifeboat 14 but were transferred to collapsible D during the night.
Daisy was never the same after the trauma of the Titanic. By 24 April 1912 she and Lillian were back in Green Bay. But less than a month after the disaster, Daisy was admitted to a sanatorium in Wood County for pneumonia. Having moved to Los Angeles about 1918, she died on 30 April 1919, aged 40. In a letter to her aunt on 1 May 1919, a cousin wrote, "Daisy's condition was very, very poor and the end could have been nothing but a great relief for her."
