Delilah Simmons, 14, died February 6, 2020 at her home, Highland Park, Pennsylvania.

At birth, doctors did not expect Delilah to live long. She spent her first week of life in the NICU where specialists soon diagnosed her with the rare chromosomal disorder, Trisomy 13. Her prognosis was grim, with a life expectancy of about six weeks; thus, her parents took their newborn home on hospice; however, Delilah defied the odds.

She lived, grew and thrived in her own way. She attended both the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children in Oakland and Child’sWay Child Care Center for medically fragile children in Garfield. Delilah was feisty. She knew what she liked and what she did not.

Her funeral service is Thursday, February 13, 2020 at Macedonia Church of Pittsburgh  2225 Bedford Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA

Delilah is survived by her parents, Vernon Simmons and Kym Simmons; brother, Ellis Simmons; aunts and uncles, Juliet Morgan, Kermath Simmons, Stanton Simmons, Gary Simmons, Jeffrey Simmons and Keri Jordan Leander.
