Service for last Titanic survivor
The ashes of a woman who became the last survivor of the Titanic have been scattered following a memorial service.
Millvina Dean was nine weeks old when the liner sank after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic on its maiden voyage from Southampton on 15 April 1912.
Miss Dean died in a care home in Hampshire at the age of 97.
Miss Dean's ashes were scattered from a small launch on the water of berth 43/44 at Southampton Docks, the terminal from which the ship set sail.
Miss Dean's partner Bruno Nordmanis scattered the ashes accompanied by a small group of friends and relatives and the port's chaplain, the Reverend Andrew Huckett.
It followed a service at St Mary's Church in Copythorne, Hampshire, on Saturday morning.
Rest In Peace!

Thats the problem with the youngsters..they know only the cinematic version of history. :))
No Kate Winslet is still alive.
The Last Survivor. Gone but hopefully not forgotten.
Their stories should be shared with the younger generations to keep important parts of history alive.
May her soul rest in peace!

“there is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.”

Is she Hindu? Hindus cremate the dead and immerse the ashes in water.
End of a saga. May she rest in peace.
