Last Titanic survivor dies at age 97 - May 31st 2009, 09:19 PM

Millvina Dean , the last survivor of the sinking of RMS Titanic , has died, her friend Gunter Babler said Sunday. Babler said Dean's longtime companion, Bruno Nordmanis, called him in Switzerland to say Dean had died in her sleep at her nursing home in southern England. He said staff members discovered her in her room Sunday morning. Babler said Dean was hospitalized with pneumonia last week but had recovered and returned to the nursing home.

Wow, it's crazy to think there's nobody alive who remembers the sinking now... I have a feeling she was the youngest survivor of the tragedy afterwards, wasn't she only a baby?Ņ (I used to have a heavy obsession with the Titanic when I was younger )

EDIT: Yeah. she was. I'm cool. (:

Here's what happens when time goes by. Soon it'll be that no one remembers World War I, then the depression, and eventually WWII.

^Same thing with 9/11. One day we'll all be gone and no one is going to be around to retell what happened that day. Of course it's different because there's video but still the emotion will be gone from it.

They weren't in "the public eye" and it seems like an attempt for people to remember the Titanic event, the true one not Hollywood's many versions. But, with everything, people forget it or undermine it, even if it is documented in text. This will happen to President Obama, 9/11, whenever WWIII happens, etc... . Aside from that, there's no reason for this to be documented in the news. If the person's name was given, few would care but slap on "Titanic's last survivor" and people care a bit more but it's still nothing spectacular.

Died on the anniversary of the launching of the Titanic. Eerie.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

Its ashame, I was mesmorized about the titanic & would have loved to meet someone who was on it...oh well...never mind. If Im being honest I think they should build a complete replica including the real minor stuff like cuttlery.

That's really sad =(

I am sure she must have been a really interesting lady with lots of stories to tell.




Live on love.

At least she didn't throw The Heart Of The Ocean overboard so she's one up on the movie woman.

Hmm. I just realised that there wouldn't have been anyone anyway... seeing she was a couple of months old at the time she probably didn't exactly remember MUCH...
