Delaney, of Shrewsbury, Pa., was on a walk with her grandmother at about 7 a.m. Monday when they were hit near the intersection of Girdwood and Londonderry roads in a residential area of Lutherville-Timonium, police said. Limmer lived in Timonium.

Family members have asked mourners to remember Delaney by donating to Defenders of Animal Rights, and Limmer with donations to the Make A Wish Foundation.

The incident took place at Girdwood and Londonderry roads near Dulaney High School, the Baltimore County Fire Department said.

Delaney was recalled in an obituary as a “beloved daughter,” survived by two “feline siblings.” Limmer was a “cherished sister” and “devoted mother,” her obituary read. Limmer worked as a nurse in the intensive care units at Sinai Hospital for 28 years.

She was walking her granddaughter in a stroller on the sidewalk when they were struck by a Kia SUV, police said. Both victims were transported to area hospitals in critical condition and later pronounced dead.

The driver of the SUV is a 22-year-old woman, Baltimore County police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Peach said. The woman remained at the scene before being taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, along with a 25-year-old male passenger, police said. Police are still investigating the cause of the crash.

Peach said a routine blood test of the driver was taken, “but it will take weeks for the results to return.”
