Ashes of last Titantic survivor scattered

The London Mail Online reports that the ashes of Millvina Dean were scattered in the water near Southampton's port, the port from which Titanic departed on it's ill-fated trip. Dean was the last survivor of the shipwreck, although only an infant at the time. She died May 31, shortly after it was revealed she was selling her collection of Titanic memorabilia in an effort to pay her nursing home bills. Additional coverage is in This Is Hampshire.
