29 crew and the Captain were lost in the raging swells of Lake Superior 35 years ago. Resquiat in Pacem.
From CNN: QUOTE"So you've got a grave marker there now," Farnquist said. "And the original bell, which is the soul of the ship and the voice of the men, was brought up and it gets tolled every year in the museum gallery for those that want to come and families that want to be close."

The bell is rung once for each man lost. As many as 10 family members are expected this year to step forward and sound the bell, Farnquist said.
"We helped bring closure, or as much closure as you can, to people who couldn't recover their loved ones -- sons, fathers, husbands, grandfathers and so on, who are still lying on that ship for eternity."UNQUOTE
