The 62-year-old grandmother was walking in Marionville Road at around 10.50pm on May 6, when she was hit by a silver Vauxhall Zafira.

She was taken to hospital but died as a result of her injuries the next morning.

Following her mother’s death, Suzanne’s daughter Kerryann Hutchison described her as “the sweetest, kindest, most loving, gentle, beautiful soul” and said she was “enjoying life”.

"She is sorely missed by everyone who knew her,” said Kerryann in her touching tribute.

"I am broken by what has happened as are the rest of the family and all her friends who knew her.”

Now Nicola Rankin, Suzanne’s niece, has set up a GoFundMe page in memory of her aunt, who was originally from Piershill but lived in Port Seton.

On the page, Nicola said: “Tragically following a night out which Suzanne enjoyed doing most Friday and Saturday nights, she was caught up in a tragic accident which involved a car colliding with her outside The Hoppy Bar on Marionville Road.

Suzanne Farrell, 67, who died in the Marionville Road crash, was described as a 'beautiful soul" by her family.

"She was taken to hospital but sadly her daughter Kerryann had to make the decision for her machine to be turned off.

“Suzanne's family are devastated by this tragic news and are broken.”

Nicola also paid tribute to Suzanne, who she said loved to party and dance with her friends and family.

“She loved dancing and would always be the first up to dance and would have everyone up dancing,” she said.

She added that the devoted grandmother had raised her grandson John from a young age and that he was still in her care when she died.

"He is absolutely broken as are her daughter Kerryann and her other grandkids,” said Nicola. “We know Suzanne would be the first to help many folk out if they needed help.

"We would appreciate any donations towards the help of Suzanne's family no matter how small it is. It would all help.”

So far, more than £500 has been raised of the set £1,500 goal.
