98 years ago today, the Titanic was launched.

And we know what happened a couple of weeks later.

706 passengers survived.  And the last survivor of the Titanic died this morning.  She was 97.  Milvina Dean was just over two months at the time of the sinking.  She was in lifeboat 13.

She was in the news a few months ago when she had to auction of her Titanic memorabilia in order to pay nursing home costs.

But Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet stepped in paid her nursing home fees….
