Mrs William Thompson Graham (Edith Ware Junkins) was born on 6 December 1863.
A resident of Greenwich, Connecticut, Mrs Graham was the wife of a leading industrialist W. T. Graham, founder of the Dixie Cup Company.
She boarded the Titanic at Southampton with her daughter Margaret; she occupied cabin C-91 (ticket number17582, £153 9s 3d).
According to a newspaper interview the two ladies were helped to the lifeboats by Washington Roebling and Howard B. Case.
"They shouted goodbye to us, and then what do you think Mr Case did then? He just calmly lighted a cigarette and waved us goodbye with his hand. Mr Roebling stood there too - I can see him now. I am sure he knew that the ship would go to the bottom. But both just stood there."
Mother and daughter were rescued in lifeboat 3.
Edith died in Greenwich, Connecticut on 29 December 1924. She was buried at Putnam Cemetery, Greenwich, Connecticut.
