“I know she touched so many hearts and that the significance of this loss will be felt by all, including her family, friends, staff members and clients.

The cause of her death was not disclosed.
McCusker, who qualified as an advocate, was severely injured in an altercation with a taxi driver in Lonehill on September 13 2011.
Doctors at Fourways Life Hospital gave McCusker little chance of survival. Among other injuries, she had lost 58% of her skin, which was scraped off, exposing bone, ligaments and muscle. Her spinal vertebrae were fractured in seven places, as were both her legs.
