Hannah Elizabeth Wallace

November 30, 2003 ‒ April 06, 2021

Delaware, Ohio

Hannah Elizabeth Wallace, 17 of Delaware, Ohio passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family and caregivers on April, 6 2021 and is now walking, talking, and no doubt singing praises in Heaven.

Hannah was born November 30, 2003 at Riverside Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She was born with Cerebral Palsy and had several medical complications, but that never stopped her from being part of anything, her siblings made sure of that!

Hannah began to receive care in her home from nurses through Nationwide Children’s HomeCare to assist in the provisions of her day to day care and many of the nurses and providers became like family to her. Hannah also received support services from the Delaware County Board of Developmental Disabilities who provided direction and assistance for her and our family throughout Hannah’s life. For both of these organizations, we are extremely grateful.

In Hannah’s early life, she loved attending school. She started at Hickory Knoll preschool and transitioned to Delaware City Schools special needs program. Hannah attended elementary school at Schultz Elementary and then Woodward Elementary where she had many wonderful teachers who started the “Hannah Helper” position for students to be able to hold doors and assist with getting Hannah where she needed to be.

Hannah also enjoyed going to church, where she would laugh and make noise with the music. The louder, the better. She loved being outdoors, taking walks through the neighborhood in her wheelchair and attending her siblings soccer games when she could. She enjoyed listening to her favorite music and books, but most of all, she loved being with her family. Whether it was at home with her siblings, chilling in her lounge chair, going to extended family gatherings for holidays, or traveling on our numerous family adventures, she was always there and always happy.

Hannah is unique in her own way, she brought joy to our lives and has touched many through her contagious laugh and beautiful red curly hair. She taught us how to love unconditionally and how to live a meaningful life even through adversity. She taught us how to see and live life with a different perspective and that those with special needs are truly special indeed.

Hannah is survived by her loving parents, Jeff and Amy (Davis) Wallace of Delaware; her 5 siblings, Jonah, Makaylah, Micah, Isaiah, and Gabrielah; Grandparents, Jeff and Nora Wallace of Athens and Ken and Laurean Davis of Delaware; Great Grandmother, Iola Wallace of Stockport; Aunts and Uncles, Chris and Courtney Thompson of New Plymouth, Ethan Wallace of Athens, and Levi and Melissa Oatney of Lewis Center; as well as numerous cousins, great aunts and uncles.

The family will receive friends on Friday, April 9, 2021 from 5 – 8 pm at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive at W. William Street, Delaware, where services celebrating Hannah’s life will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 11:00 am with Pastor Al Perry officiating.

  • Thomas Carlyle said, “Music is said to be the speech of angels. ” I think we all saw that through Hannah Music was truly her connection and seeing the joy in her face when the music was playing loud, brought all of us a little closer to God too. Love to you and your family. – The Darrahs

  • Deepest condolences to Amy, Jeff, and family. I just loved Hannah so much. She was a joy to “hang out” with, and I told her often. I’m not sure who enjoyed reading books, listening to music, and going for walks outside more, me or her? I will miss her greatly and remember her fondly always. Getting to know her was truly a pleasure and a blessing.

  • Jeff and Amy, My visits to your home were treasured ones, there was so much love for sweet Hannah and for each other. I have always remembered how she was included in whatever was going on. Know that you were amazing parents. I will forever carry Hannah in my heart.
