She loved life and was determined to enjoy and make it better for all.

Cats, traveling, people and dancing – four of Susan Ferrell’s loves. She had three cats, put a lot of miles on her feet in Europe, was always there to help a friend and loved to dance. Her mother, Sally Ferrell, said, “Susan had an incredible passion for dancing.” This included jazz, ballet, and belly dancing, which Susan called “Cultural Heritage Eastern Dancing.” She delighted in being a member of the Jewels of the Nile dancing troupe. Ferrell, 37, was an attorney for U.S. Housing and Urban Development.
