The Last Titanic Survivor Has Left Us



Millvina Dean, the last survivor of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, has died.

In 1996, I blogged about the death of the last Titanic survivor with a memory of the sinking of the ship. The tragic story of the family of Lillian Asplund has stuck with me ever since.

Miss Dean's father went down with the ship, but her brother and mother survived. She was two months old when the ship sank.

Rest in peace.
