Obituary for Ines Y. Ortega

January 4, 1939 - March 27, 2019
Landenberg, Pennsylvania | Age 80


Ines Y. Ortega, age 80, of Landenberg, PA passed away March 27, 2019. Ines was born in Cocorote, Venezuela on January 4, 1939 to the late Rafael and Luisa Salcedo.

Many would describe Ines as a free spirit. She cherished her family and taught them to always be themselves, live life to the fullest, and take chances. She raised her children in a home that was loving and educational. Ines loved all types of music and made sure to expose different genres and artists to her children. She taught her family Spanish and all about their culture. She even travelled with her family each summer to her homeland in Venezuela. Ines gave up her life to raise her family and when she became a grandmother, she experienced a whole new meaning of life. Ines loved animals and she enjoyed camping with her family. She was a natural dress designer and seamstress and you could always find her with a book in her hand.

Ines is survived by her nephew, Alberto Villasana of Wilmington, DE; daughters: Natasha Ortega (B. Greenhill) of Newark, DE and Natalie Ortega-Moran (Mark) of Landenberg, PA; sons: Vladimir Ortega (Amanda) of Glenn Mills, PA and David Ortega and fiancé Lija of Philadelphia, PA; grandchildren: Thomas Moran, Joseph Moran, Raphael Ortega, Sarah Moran, Mateo Ortega, Maximus Ortega, and Vivian Ortega; two sisters; and four brothers; and many cousins and nieces and nephews.
