Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is June 3rd, 2009, I’m Royce, and I’m here to announce that Milvina Dean, the last Titanic suvivor, died on May 31st, 2009, living for 97 years.
Recently, Milvina Dean was living in a care home near Ashurst, in the Southern English county of Hampshire. There had been news earlier in the year that she had been selling her Titanic memorabilia to pay for her nursing dues.
Elizabeth Gladys Dean was merely nine weeks old when her and her family boarded the Titanic in 1912. Her family were immigrating to Kansas for her father to open a tobacconists shop.
“I was really sad to discover that she passed away. I had always admired her for being known as the last survivor. She was a world figure to everyone.” Melanie, a writer at the Modern Typewriter said.
Milvina was born on February 12th, 1912 and was the youngest passenger on board of the Titanic of just nine weeks.
“I was shocked, yet not shocked. She was aging to 97, she wouldn’t live much longer, but I had hoped she would.” says Cody, another writer.
Elizabeth Gladys Dean died on May 31st, 2009. She will be remembered throughout history as the last survivor of the Titanic.
We apologize for not posting a post in the past two months. We are terribly sorry.
