A service for Charles Joughin, 78, of 574 E. 23rd St. who survived the sinking of the trans-Atlantic liner, Titanic, will be held tomorrow at 2 P.M. at the R. Charles D. Legg and Sons Home for Funerals, 384 Broadway. The Rev. William L. Griffin, Jr., of St. Paul's Episcopal Church will officiate. Burial will be in Cedar Lawn Cemetery. Visiting hours are after 7 tonight.
   Mr. Joughin died yesterday at the Barnert Memorial Hospital. Born in Liverpool, England, he lived in Paterson about 35 years. He went to sea at the age of 11, and later became chief baker on various steamships.
   He was aboard the Titanic when it sank on its maiden voyage in April, 1912, after ramming an iceberg. He also was on the SS Oregon when it went to the bottom in Boston Harbor a number of years ago. Before retiring 12 years ago, he served on ships operated by the American Export Lines, as well as on World War II troop transports.
   His wife, Mrs. Nellie Ripley Joughin, died in 1943.
   He leaves a daughter, Miss Agnes Joughin, of Liverpool, a stepdaughter, Mrs. Henry (Rose) Stoehr, of Paterson, and nieces and nephews.
