After hearing and reading about Margaret Molly Brown, trust me, for sure, I'd like her.
Feisty and controversial, she fought and spoke out for animal, childrens', and human rights.
She also loved to have parties and entertained frequently in the farily modest home in Denver, Colorado.
Her friends called her "Molly." Surprisingly, she had just an eighth grade education and yearned to find a rich man, according to our tour guide, Janet, at Molly's home.
She and her husband had two children and helped raise three nieces whose mother died.
Margaret "Molly" brown survived the Titanic. A movie was made on this, titled "The Unsinkable Molly Brown." The tour guide said a lot of the information in the movie differed from reality.
Molly took the journey in order to get back to the United States. She had received upsetting news that her new grandchild , who she had not yet met, was very ill.
The night the massive ship sunk into its deep and watery tomb, Molly Brown put on warm woolen stockings. She also grabbed a stole and $50 and got into a life boat. (She had a necklace on board worth more than $20,000!)
A true philanthropist, she also started a special committee for other survivors of the disaster.
On wall in front of the Molly Brown House.Molly Brown stood five feet and seven inches tall. She spoke several languages including English, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. Green was her favorite color.
She separated permanently from her husband and died of a brain tumor in 1932.
Margaret Molly Brown sounded like a very dynamic woman who wasn't afraid to stand up for what she believed in. No wonder I would have liked her!
