Obituary for Liliana Myla Sanchez

July 11, 2012 - February 16, 2020
Elyria, Ohio | Age 7

Loving Daughter, Sister, Granddaughter, Great-Granddaughter, Niece, Cousin, Friend


Liliana Myla Sanchez, 7 years old of Elyria formerly of Boca Raton, FL passed away Sunday, February 16, 2020 at the Cleveland Clinic surrounded by her loving family after a 9 month battle with brain cancer (DIPG). She was born July 11, 2012 to parents Joshua Sanchez and Jamie Davis.

Liliana loved her school friends. She attended Prospect Elementary School and was a proud 2nd grader. She also attended The Goddard School as a pre-schooler where she was affectionately called the "spicy peanut". Liliana was feisty, spunky, sassy, witty and funny. She was really tough, fast, loved Wonder Woman, painting her nails, Pokemon, LEGO, coloring and crafts. She loved nature and all of the animals in it. She was never one to judge and made everyone feel loved. Liliana wanted to be a veterinarian, an engineer and a "colorer". She never complained during her entire sickness and her daily "To Do" list consisted of "snuggle, chill out and snuggle some more".

She is survived by her beloved parents Joshua Sanchez and Jamie Davis; her best friend and brother Makai; her Maga, Wendy Phelps; Papaw and Zsa Zsa Mark Davis and Marie Veninshek; Mimi and Grandpa Maria and Richard Sanchez; great-grandparents Dottie Phelps and Donna Brown; aunts and uncles Nicholas Davis, Portia Miller, Alexa Plantado, Michael Sanchez (Stacy) and Rachel Cotto (Juan Miguel); cousins Miles, Gianna, Aiden, Lincoln, Matthias, Carmen, Ninna, Maddie, Regan, Emma, Madison, and Lucas as well as a host of other cousins.

She is preceded in death by her great-uncle Lucas Del Valle; great-grandparents Jose and Carmen Del Valle, Kathleen and Alvin Davis and Richard Phelps.
