She graduated from Lenawee Christian School in 1993, after which she attended Jackson Community College and Cedarville University. In 2003, Susan graduated from Siena Heights University with a BA in psychology. She continued her education with near completion of her Masters.

Wonderful, witty, kind and gracious - just a few words that can even start to describe what an awesome person she was. She was so full of love for others, and I am forever thankful I was blessed to know her. Our prayers will be said for the Perry family until that happy day when we are all reunited with her again.
