Kanoweh L. Simmons was born on October 21, 1958 to the late Loretta Hunt Simmons and Henry L. Simmons, in Cleveland, Ohio. Her primary education was in the Cleveland Public School System where she graduated from Glenville High School in 1977.
Kanoweh had a passion for cleaning, which led her to a career in Housekeeping. She was the Supervisor of Housekeeping at the Radisson Hotel, Cleveland, Ohio for 14 years and the Hyatt Place Hotel at Legacy Village for 4 years.
Her favorite pastimes included traveling, especially to Las Vegas. She enjoyed cooking, dancing, shopping, and fashion. She was always “creased” from head to toe.
Kanoweh was full of life and lived her life on her own terms. Kanoweh never hesitated to offer a helping hand, even if it was her last. She always had a smile and a kind word. Her laugh was infectious and will be greatly missed.
