Gretchen Fiske Longley Leopold

I am looking for information on Mrs Gretchen Leopold (née Longley), the daughter of a Mr and Mrs Longley, Mrs Longley's mother and father's name being Robert E. and Matilda Fonda Andrews. Gretchen was born, I believe, in Hudson, New York, and she was educated at the Quincy Mansion School in Wallanton, Massachusetts, and graduated there in 1910.
In 1912, Gretchen Fiske Longley (21) and her two aunts, Kornelia Theodosia Andrews (63) and Anna Andrews Hogeboom (51), wife of John C. Hogeboom, boarded the RMS Titanic at Southampton in Hampshire, England. The three escaped in Lifeboat No 10, and Miss Andrews, the eldest of the party, died no less than two years later. Mrs Hogeboom died in 1947.
All I know about Miss Longley is these facts, and that she was later Mrs Leopold, and was wondering if anybody is of this line, I listing as many names as I could for her line.
If anyone can help me with in learning more about her, I would be very thankful and grateful.
