Have you tried simply rebooting the phone?

I went through everything and deleted it but it still shows up.

Is there a way to reset/update the search function?
Go to Settings, General, Spotlight Search, and uncheck all the items. Wait for a bit, then go back and check them all again. That worked for me.
