Isidor & Ida Straus died on the RMS Titanic. Isidor urged his wife to board the lifeboat, but she refused, saying, "We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go." Her words were witnessed by those in Lifeboat No. 8 and many others on the deck. They were last seen alive sitting together quietly on deck chairs on Titanic's boat deck when a huge wave washed over them. A monument to them in a Bronx cemetery reads: "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it."
