Nearly a century after she was rescued from the decks of the sinking Titanic,
the last remaining survivor of the disaster has died, aged 97.
Elizabeth Gladys Dean, known as Millvina, died today at the nursing home near
Southampton where her care had been subsidised by Leonardo Di Caprio and
Kate Winslet — stars of the Titanic film — who were moved by her story.
Millvina, the youngest passenger on the ship, was 9 weeks old in April 1912
when she set sail for a new life in America with her mother, father and
brother. The family, from London, were supposed to have emigrated on a
different ship, but because of a coal strike were transferred to the
Titanic, travelling third class.– Times Online
