Jessica Rae Simmons

September 17, 1985 — January 2, 2018

Jessica Rae Simmons, age 32 of West Springfield, Pa., was offered the hand of God early Tuesday morning, January 2, 2018 at UPMC in Erie. PA  

 Jessica was a very special young lady who loved people as well as material things but not as much as the real living  thing.  She was very much in love with her two children:  Lilian and Jacob.  She spent as much time with these two peas in the pod as she could.  She loved to play with the kids on the playground and she especially liked baking with them and teaching them how recipes work.

 Jessica was re-united with her mother,  April (Brown) Grove, who passed away last January 6, 2017.  Together, they are looking down and watching over their precious children and family.

 Besides her two beautiful children; Lilian and Jacob, Jessica is survived by two sisters:  Gabrielle and Sabrina and three brothers:  David, Joshua, and Joey and two nieces, and four nephews and Grandparents:  David and Nancy Brown.
