Adele Nasser (Nasrallah) was the daughter of Habib Hakim and his wife Ator Achem (Rose Gresati) from Zahle, Lebanon.
She was newly married to Nicholas Nasser and boarded the Titanic with her new husband at Cherbourg as second class passengers. She was pregnant at the age of 14 on the Titanic. To reach their destination New York, they bought ticket number 237736 for £30 1s 5d.
In the rushing to and fro which followed the Titanic's collision with the iceberg Mrs. Nasser was torn from the arms of her husband and lifted into the lifeboat where Mrs. Madeleine Astor was in too. The two women huddled together for warmth during the hours before they were picked up by the rescue liner Carpathia. Mrs. Astor tried to speak to the Syrian girl, but her language was incomprehensible to the grieving girl. (Mrs. Nasrallah has the mysterious eyes of the Syrian desert)
Mrs Nasser survived the sinking, whereas her husband did not. To the Immigration Officer she gave her destination as Cleveland, Ohio, but unknown adress. This was given in the Senate's list as 652 Bolivia Road.
Her little boy was born on 9 December 1912 but died hours later.
She later remarried to Albert A. Shamaley who was born 15 May 1884 and died in a car accident in August of 1969.
She died in El Paso Texas on 20 January 1970. She was survived by her four chuldren and her sister Mary and brother Richard who had also emigrated to America.
