Obituary of Susan Evans Carr Saunier
Susan Evans Carr Saunier, lifelong resident of Lexington Kentucky, passed away on Wednesday 16 March 2022 1:25 p.m. Eastern Standard daylight savings time due do an unknown blood disorder unrelated to covid. Her immune system was compromised so she never received the covid vaccine. Many Thanks to the following: Phi Mu Fraternity Delta Theta Chapter University Transylvania, CHI Saint Joseph Health Lexington Kentucky, Father Anthony Lexington Kentucky Diocese, and Care Cremation Lexington Kentucky. Susan suffered immensely over the past six years from an unknown blood disorder, possibly related to poisoning from contaminated Losartan Potassium medication which was recalled in January of 2019. It all started with a simple nose bleed. First the doctors thought it was aids. Next the doctors thought it was lupus. Then the doctors thought it was cancer because all of her hair fell out. Finally the doctors said it was an unknown blood disorder and treatment was simply B vitamins and minerals and her hair grew back in. At the end of July 2021 all the doctors gave her a clean bill of health with all organs and immune system normal. In December of 2021 she was hospitalized with congestive heart failure, liver failure, kidney failure and an unknown infection. She died in my arms crying out for her mother.
