Hurricane Katrina

Susan Allen, 53, Biloxi

Susan Allen died alongside her husband, John, in their Biloxi apartment near the Broadwater Marina during Katrina.

Susan and John were married 18 years and they traveled extensively for John's work with the U.S. Air Force. She had no children with John.

Her father-in-law described Susan, who worked at the casinos, as a kind, free-spirited person. "They were sweet people," Eldo Ray Allen said.
