Calgarian Vera Gillespie was born in Ontario Canada on June 12, 1894.  She was listed as being a housewife and she and her Calgary business man husband boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as first class passenger.  The ship log stated that the couple was in cabin B-20, travelling under ticket #17474 and paid 57 English Pounds for their passage.  

The following photos are of an article that was printed in the Calgary Herald, in which Vera gives her recollection of the fateful night where she and her husband were rescued in Life boat #3

She died in Banff, Alberta on October 7, 1973
