Dalys Judith Cordero

June 22, 1958 — June 7, 2024

Dalys Judith Cordero passed away peacefully with her daughter Junnys by her bedside on Friday morning, June 7, 2024, after a courageous battle against stomach cancer.  She was 65 years old.  Dalys was born on June 22, 1958, in Panama City, Panama, to Dilsia Chacon and Cesar Zuniga of Chiriqui, Panama.   In 1978, after completing one year of college, she gave birth to her daughter, Junnys Soto Acosta.  Unable to continue her college education, she turned her attention towards raising her new born daughter and joined the local work force.  She worked as a sales clerk in her home town of Panama City.  At 27, she married Almando Cordero, a U.S. soldier stationed in Panama.  In 1985, Dalys gave birth to her second child, Jose Anthony Cordero.  Soon after, the family left Panama, and several assignments later, they arrived in Shreveport, LA, in 1994.  The marriage dissolved, leaving Dalys to become head-of-household.  In supporting her family, Dalys worked several jobs, from sales clerk, to waitressing, to cashier at the base commissary.   She was also active in the local community, where she participated in fund raisers such as, The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, bake sales, food drives, fashion shows, and the local movie industry.  In 1996, she met, Juan Carlos Perez, and spent the next 28 years together.   A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, she did her best to ensure her children received a solid education and promoted a healthy, loving, and happy home for all.
