February 25, 1967 - February 5, 2022
It is with the heaviest of hearts and profound sense of loss, that we announce Susan’s unexpected passing from this life on Saturday, February 5th. Susan passed peacefully from natural causes and was comforted and surrounded by family and friends, as well as the amazing staff at Inova Loudoun. Susan was the gentlest of souls. Creative, compassionate, caring, giving… quick to offer a kind word or compliment and provide comfort to people, she always made sure the needs of others came before her own. Susan cherished the close relationships with her family and friends above anything else in this world, innately recognizing the relationships we possess are what matter most in this life. Susan lived this life to its absolute fullest, always looking to take on the next adventure with family and friends. A lover of the outdoors and nature enthusiast, she was connected to, and understood life’s deeper meaning and all it’s blessings. Susan could often be found kayaking, biking, hiking, running, camping or taking part in some physical activity with her family and friends. She even overcame a fear of heights and went skydiving several times! Susan did not tire easily, nor did she take her time here for granted. Among Susan’s many other passions include a deep love of art, music, dancing, travel, old movies, a good book, and being anywhere near or on a body of water — be it a river, lake, or the ocean — with her family and chocolate lab Fenway. Susan is predeceased by her parents, Wayne and Sandy Harris (née Scagnelli) of Alexandria, VA. She is survived by her husband, soulmate, and best friend David; her three children Jordan (18), Luke (16), and Nathan (14); sister Sheri and brother-in-law John McGowan; in-laws Richard and Karin Beaupre; brother and sister-in law Derek and Kelly Beaupre; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She also leaves behind countless friends and her beloved dog, Fenway. In Susan’s final act of selflessness and caring for others, her wishes to donate her organs were honored, and ultimately may result in at least two lives being saved. We will gather to celebrate her life, as she would’ve wanted. Please join us anytime between 1-5pm on Sunday, February 27th. Location: The Barns at Hamilton Station 16804 Hamilton Station Road Hamilton, VA 20158 A second celebration of life will take place for her New England family and friends on July 2nd in Hampton, NH. In lieu of cards or flowers, and to honor Susan’s legacy, you can dedicate a donation to Susan at: the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, the Humane Society of Loudoun County, or the charity of your choice. Susan has slipped the surly bonds of this Earth to touch the face of God. We will carry her presence in our hearts for eternity and cherish the many memories we have. “And when the Earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.” Rest easy, our love.
