Miss Susanna Juhantytär Riihivuori

Miss Susanna (Sanni) Riihivuori, 22, was born on 23 April 1889. The daughter of Juho Riihivuori, she lived with her father in Ylihärmä, Western Finland. They were neighbours of the Panula family and when the Panulas decided to go and live in to Coal Centre, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Sanni went with them (possibly to work as their maid). She boarded the Titanic at Southampton with Maria Panula and her children on 10 April, 1912.

Sanni died in the sinking, her body was never found. Her father asked the fund for money, but there are no records of any payments however, £50 was paid out in compensation.
