Rosalie Ida Straus had managed to find herself place in one of the lifeboats, but when told that Isidor Straus could not join her, she left the lifeboat, saying, "We have lived together many years. I will not be seperated from my husband. As we have lived, so we shall die. Together." When it was then suggested that because of the couple's ages, it would be alright for Isidor Straus to join Rosalie Ida Straus in the lifeboat, he replied, "No. I do not wish any distinction in my favor which is not granted others."
Ellen Bird managed to board lifeboat No. 8, and survived the sinking of Titanic, but Isidor Straus, Rosalie Ida Straus and John Farthing were all lost in the sinking and only the body of Isidor Straus was recovered and identified.
