    No one in Titanicdom has found her date of death so far as I know. She stayed in Havana, Cuba and married--is said to be buried in Cementerio Colon but without a married name can't be located. A cousin of mine in Havana recently found the address of her daughter and has been to her home but unfortunately the daughter is in Spain for an extended period. I should know much more about her by year's end. Phillip Gowan
