AMSTERDAM, N. Y., July 28 (AP)---Miss Marie C. Young, one of the survivors of the Titanic ship disaster, died yesterday at a rest home near here. Her age was 83.

Miss Young had been a piano teacher and numbered among her pupils the children of President Theodore Roosevelt. She

As a traveling companion to Mrs. J. Stuart White of New York, Miss Young was aboard the White Star liner Titanic in
1912 when it sank on its maiden voyage after striking an iceberg off Newfoundland. There were 1,517 lives lost and 690 survivors. Miss Young had lived at the rest home for the last six years.
