2,206th Titanic Passenger Dies

Barbara West Dainton, one of the last two surviving passengers of the Titanic, has died at 96.

Her father, Edwy West, was killed when the vessel sank after striking an iceberg.

Dainton, her mother, Ada, and her sister, Constance, were rescued. They returned to England.

During her life, Dainton said she "wanted nothing to do with the Titanic people," the Encyclopedia Titanica said. [Link]
