Carmen Adela Ledo, 87, passed away peacefully on September 8, 2023 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Born July 25th,1936 in Havana, Cuba, Carmen grew up in a small village in Cuba, La Esperanza. She attended Dominicas Francesas school in Havana, Cuba, Inmaculada Concepcion, and Universidad Central Martha Abreu in Santa Clara, Cuba where she studied math and accounting. Carmen immigrated in the United States in 1963 to escape communism. She graduated from Mercy College in New York in 1971 with a degree in social work. Carmen had a dedicated career in social work, working in New York for ten years before moving to Apollo Beach, Florida. She was recognized for her endeavors, twice winning the Hillsborough County Hispanic Woman of the Year Award and serving as a founding member on the board of the Mary and Martha House, to support abused and homeless women and children. Carmen would go on to retire from Hillsborough County in December of 2000, after more than 20 years of service. In her retirement, Carmen moved to Newberry, Florida and then, Jacksonville, Florida to be closer to her family. She enjoyed traveling, visiting family and friends, eating good Cuban food, and spoiling her two grandchildren.

Carmen was a devoted mother, grandmother, and friend. She is survived by her only child, Ivo E. Solis (Kimberly), and grandchildren, Ivo and Isla. A mass and celebration of life reception will be held on October 23rd, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Historic Church.
