MONTCLAIR, N. J., Jan. 24 ---Word has been received here of the death of Mrs. Annie May Stengel, a survivor of the sinking of the Titanic. Mrs. Stengel died Sunday in Norwalk, Conn., while on a trip with her granddaughter, Mrs. Inez Horton Gay, with whom she lived here.

Mrs. Stengel, who was 88 years old, was the widow of Charles E. H. Stengel, Newark patent leather manufacturer. Mr. and Mrs. Stengel were aboard the Titanic when she hit an iceberg on April 15, 1912. Mrs. Stengel was helped by her husband into the third lifeboat launched. Mr. Stengel later leaped into the sea, and the couple were reunited on the deck of the rescue ship Carpathia.

Mrs. Stengel is survived also by two sons, Karl R. of Spring Lake and Henry I. of New York, two other granddaughters and a grandson.
