Birth: May 12, 1851
Death: Mar. 8, 1929

Survivor of the Titanic disaster. Born just outside of Toronto, she was the daughter of John MacDougald and his wife Mary. She grew up with her 14 brothers and sisters in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba. Married to Mark Fortune and resident in Winnipeg, Manitoba, she boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a first class passenger. Also with them were their three daughters Alice Elizabeth, Ethel Flora and Mabel, and their son, Charles Alexander Fortune. The family occupied cabins C-23-25-27. Mary and her daughters were rescued in lifeboat 10. Her husband and son both perished. She later recounted that there was a man dressed in women's clothing on her lifeboat. (bio by: Patrick R)
