SIMMONS, Sevanah Kathleen Burke
Sevanah passed away September 4, 2015 in the loving arms of her Mother and Father after a brave and graceful fight with brainstem cancer (DIPG). Sevanah is survived by her parents, Angelina and Christopher; her paternal grandparents, Carolyn and Scott; Uncle Alex; Auntie Melissa and Uncle Matt; Uncle Jonathan and Auntie Amy; Uncle Nathanael and Auntie Megan (Mikayla and Levi); Uncle Wesley; Uncle Timothy; her beloved Auntie Elisha-Joy; Papa; and many more family members and friends.
Although Sevanah was only with us for a short time, she filled our lives with such joy and happiness. Sevanah loved people and always made sure to make everyone one of her beautiful homemade gifts. Her sense of humour was often expressed through her beloved “Monkey Crew.” Sevanah’s love for her monkeys was only outshone by her love for the Lord which she proclaimed until her last breath. “The joy of the Lord is my strength” Nehemiah 8:10
