last titanic survivior dies
Millvina Dean, the last known survivor of the Titanic, passed away on Sunday at 97 years young.
Although Dean was just an infant when the ship sank, she was extremely involved with Titanic enthusiasts and historians over the past three decades.
She survived the tragedy along with her younger brother and mother but did not discover that she was aboard the ship until she was 8 years old.
Dean's death fell on May 31, exactly 98 years after the Titanic was launched.
