Dorys Ledet passed away July 13, 2017 at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The cause of death was lung cancer.

Dorys was born 1941 in Usulutan, El Salvador, but during her lifetime, she was a resident of: San Francisco, CA; New Orleans, LA; Miami, Florida; Elizabeth, NJ; Red Bank, NJ; and Kent, OH. While Dorys traveled around the world, her favorite country was Mexico.

Deeply faithful throughout her life, Dorys loved travel, music (especially Mariachi music), and good food. But above all, she loved her family. She is survived by her two sons and their wives, Carlos (Marianne Martens), and Alfonso (Rachel), her beloved grand-children Alexander, Christian, Olivia, and Audrey, her sister Marina, and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

Dorys made a difference in many people's lives—whether through her faith, her generosity, or her quick wit. Even while struggling with illness at the end of her life, her jokes made teams of doctors burst out laughing, and brought much levity to the sadness.

Funeral Services will be held 11:30 AM Saturday, August 5th at St. Patrick Church with Father Richard Pentello officiating.

The family would like to extend thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Cleveland Clinic. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to Cleveland Clinic Hospice. Donations may be sent directly to 6801 Brecksville Road, Suite 10, Independence Ohio 44131, tel: 216-444-9819.

Luke 23:43 - And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
