Last Titanic survivor's ashes scattered at sea

"LONDON — Friends and relatives of the last survivor of the Titanic gathered on Saturday to scatter her ashes at the point where the ill-starred ocean liner set sail in April 1912.

Elizabeth Gladys Dean -- who died on May 31, aged 97 -- was only nine weeks old when the 'unsinkable' liner hit an iceberg on its maiden transatlantic voyage, drowning 1,517 of its passengers and crew."
