Daughter of Arthur Webster and Mary (Greeley) Newell, aged 88 years.

Madeleine Newell was a graduate of Smith College.

Madeleine Newell and her younger sister, Marjorie Newell, were survivors of the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic. Their father, Arthur Webster Newell, was among the 1,500 people who perished in the disaster. His body was later recovered and buried in the Newell family plot at Mount Auburn.

Madeleine Newell never married and devoted the rest of her life to charity work.

Madeleine Newell would seldom ever speak of the Titanic disaster during her life. When she died speak of it, she never forgot and was haunted by the memory of "the terrible screaming and wailing after the Titanic sank."
