Ivette Del Carmen Marrero Matos

Posted By Hall-Wynne On July 3, 2018 @ 12:59 pm In Durham,News,Obituaries | 29 Comments

Ivette Del Carmen Marrero Matos, 59, died peacefully at Duke Hospital on Saturday, June 30th, 2018 after years of bravely surviving and fighting against cancer.  Born July 6th, 1958 in Coamo, Puerto Rico, she lived her early years in Puerto Rico, where she graduated from the University of Puerto Rico and began her professional life as a medical technologist.

In 1983, she became a mother for the first time, and then for a second time in 1989.  In 1993, she moved to Durham and began another chapter in her adult life as an employee for UNC Hospitals, where she would gracefully spend her next 25 years.

In April 2002, she married José Antonio Nava León, with whom she spent the most meaningful years of her life.  Together, she dedicated herself to provide, support and help her family to follow their dreams of becoming professionals.  As a result, her eldest daughter, Michele Marie, became a lawyer, while her second daughter, Stephanie Marie, a doctor of medicine, and her stepdaughter, Alexa Gabriela, a computer engineer.  Lastly, she also helped her stepson, Jonathan Iván, graduate high school and start his college years.

She was passionate about music, dancing salsa, cultivating roses, the beach, and being the most supporting friend, sister, and person anyone could have met.  A hard working woman, dedicated to helping and caring for all and anyone who would let her, Ivette left a lasting impression in all whom had the pleasure to meet her.

Ivette will be remembered for her charm, energy, passion, care for all others, laughter, and hospitality.  We are grateful she fulfilled her long-life dream of becoming an amazing mother, wife, and grandmother, and wise adviser; having spent her last year closely teaching her granddaughter those first lessons of life that will forever remain present and shape the woman that she will grow up to be.

Surviving are her daughters, Michele M. Silva Marrero of Puerto Rico and Stephanie M. Principe Marrero of Durham, her granddaughter, Mikaela I. Baerga Silva of Puerto Rico, and her husband, Jose Antonio Nava Leon; as well as her mother, Neida P. Matos Borges of Durham, her brother, Miguel A. Marrero Matos of Pittsburgh, PA, and her sisters, Maria Milagros Marrero Matos of Sunrise, FL, and Ada Marrero Matos of Green Bay, WI.  Ivette will also be forever remembered by numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family and dear friends.  She was preceded in death by her father, Miguel Angel Marrero.

Friends may visit 6:00-8:00PM Thursday, July 5th, at Hall-Wynne Funeral Service.  A Catholic mass will be celebrated at 3:00PM Friday, July 6th, at the Immaculate Conception Church, 810 W. Chapel Hill St., Durham, NC.  Her funeral and burial will be in Bayamón, Puerto Rico.

Flowers may be sent to Hall Wynne Funeral Service in Durham, NC.  Gifts or donations in Ivette’s memory may be made to Pretty In Pink Foundation, Sociedad Americana Contra el Cáncer de Puerto Rico (American Society Against Cancer of Puerto Rico), and Fundación Cabecitas Rapadas (Shaved Heads Foundation – charity for children, adolescents, and some adults with cancer in Puerto Rico).  Flowers for burial service may be sent, please contact the family.

Descanza en paz mi querida prima hermana … le agradezco a Dios haberte conocido y el que fueramos familia. Siempre fuistes muy humilde, superinteligentisima, bella y hermosa … gracias por haberme aceptado casi como un hermano tuyo. Siempre fue un honor para mi el tenerte ahi para charlar sobre nuestras raices familiares. No me gusta que esto suene a despedida pues no lo es ya que algun dia nos encontraremos nuevamente en el cielo. Vas a hacernos mucha falta a mucha mucha gente. Se que estas tranquilita disfrutando de la compa;nia de Dios y la Virgen. Te lo mereces. Bastante trabajastes y te esforzastes por darle lo mejor a todo el mundo que se acerco a ti siempre. Le pido a Dios que le de fortaleza a tu esposo Antonio, tu mama mi querida titi Neida, tu hermano, hermanas e hijas queridas por ti. Amen …

Deseo que Ivette pueda ser iluminada por la luz del Divino Rostro de Dios y gozar para siempre de las maravillas del Cielo y a su esposo José Antonio y sus hijas y familiares les conceda la fortaleza y la paz.

Recuerdo que tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer a Ivette en una ocasión que ella visitó México, al estar aqui, pudimos ver en ella el carisma y alegría que contagiaban a quien tenía la oportunidad de compartir con ella. Recuerdo que ella nos dijo que se llevaba una parte de México con ella y en verdad fue así pues se llevó también nuestra estima y gratitud por todo cuanto hizo por mi hermano José Antonio.

Desde aquí les enviamos un fuerte abrazo a José Antonio y su familia y nuestras más sinceras condolencias. Ahora tienen un ángel que los acompaña y los cuida desde el cielo.

Familia Juárez Nava
Querétaro, México

Condolence from Luis Angel Ferrao on July 9th, 2018 10:00 pm

Mis más sinceras condolencias a la Familia Marrero, al esposo y a sus hijas, por tan sensible pérdida. Recuerdo a Ivette y a su hermana Milagros desde que eran estudiantes en el Colegio Santa Rosa de Bayamón, y ambas sobresalían por su hermosura, inteligencia y por ser emprendedoras. A pasos de allí tenía su padre una relojería, donde lo visité en varias ocasiones. Con su hermano Miguel pasamos largas horas y días en nuestros torneos de ajedrez. Eran una familia ejemplar y su hogar en Río Hondo, Bayamón exhibía las características de unidad familiar que garantizó que todos ellos fueran personas profesionales de gran éxito. Que descanse en Paz junto a nuestro Señor en la Gloria que se merece, y el mayor consuelo para su familia. Luis A. Ferrao

Condolence from Anna Delmy Vera on July 10th, 2018 7:24 pm

Nuestro paso en esta vida es efimero. Lo que perdura para siempre es el legado que dejamos a nuestros seres queridos y a la humanidad. Y tu, Ivette, cumpliste con tu mision de dejar un legado valioso a tu familia y a los que tuvieron la oportunidad de conocerte. Ahora, Dios te concede el descanso eterno. Hasta luego, Ivette.
