Susan Pearl was the daughter of Frederic Warren Pearl and Amy Lea Duncan Pearl. She traveled as a first class passenger with her parents, three siblings and two nursemaids on board the Lusitania. Susan died in the disaster and it is believed she was with her parents and nurse when the four were washed of the deck by a large wave. Susan's body was not recovered. Her parents and two siblings survived and years later, a sister was born named after Susan and her sister Amy, who also drowned.
