Hannah Phillips, a special-needs adult in Palm Desert, California left this world, Friday July 17, 2020. She was 30 years old.

The daughter of Carl Phillips and Katherine Phillips (deceased), Hannah was born in Seattle May 17, 1990 and later moved with her family to Illinois, Virginia and 21 years ago to California. She was born with cerebral palsy - severe and profound, spastic quadriplegic - and with intellectual disability.

While Hannah was nonverbal, she brightened everyone's day. An inspiration to those who met her and were in her life, she exuded love and being in the moment.

Hannah loved being around people, especially family gatherings. Her biggest smiles and laughs were when she was with her family. During the last seven years of her life, Hannah attended daily the Angel View Day Program - a remarkable place where individuals with special needs gather daily for stimulation and friendship. Angel View was vital to Hannah's well-being.

Hannah loved to go for trips to the large community park nearby her house where she would be stimulated by being outside and watching children play. She also loved Hallmark movies, Mister Rogers, Barney, Curious George and Major League Baseball.

Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed. When you think of Hannah celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.

Hannah was preceded in death by her mother who loved Hannah with all her heart. Her mother used to say "Hannah is the sweetest little girl in the whole wide world". Hannah leaves behind her brothers Sean and Mark who loved Hannah unconditionally and were so positively shaped by their sister; and her daddy who just loved his "Little Hanny Girl" so.
