A former Tacoma woman who was celebrating her 18th birthday aboard the SS Titanic on the day it went down, Mrs. Gordon (Anna) Kincaid, died Tuesday in Olympia. She was 81.
   Mrs. Kincaid was believed to be one of few survivors still living. As Miss Anna Gustavson, she and two other girls had left their native Munsala, Finland, to come to America, where they were to be met by relatives.
   She came direct to Tacoma and lived here until 1955, when she moved to Olympia to be near her son, Harold. Mrs. Kincaid's late husband was a longtime employee of Tacoma City Light.
   Mrs. Kincaid was a member of Topaz Circle, Neighbors of Woodcraft, and once was active in Emma E. Shaw Rebekah Lodge here.
   Besides her son, survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Evelyn Hendrickson of Seattle, a brother, Andrew Gustavson of Tacoma, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
   Selene Mortuary, Olympia, is in charge.
