It is not clear which lifeboat rescued the Deans. Eva boarded one boat with her daughter but lost track of her young son. Eva was reunited with her son on the Carpathia, but her husband lost his life. The Dean’s arrived in New York where Eva and her children were taken to hospital to recuperate. Eva received £40 from an Emergency Relief Fund and a pension of 23 shillings per week for the care of her children until they were 18.
