Lily Ledbetter Obituary

With our deepest sorrow, the family of Lily Alyscia Ledbetter, born May 18, 2001, announces her sudden death in St. John, USVI, on June 6, 2023.   She is survived by her mother, Sharon Thrash; brother, Jarrett Clark; father, Patrick Ledbetter, stepmother Sarah; brother, Lawson Ledbetter; and grandmother, Marie Ledbetter. Lily is also survived by a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Graduating as an honors student from Opelika High School in 2019, Lily was active with the dance team, show choir, band, and numerous clubs and organizations. Lily attended Auburn University and competed with the Auburn University Women’s Rowing Club.
Her sparkling smile, contagious laugh, and spice for life inspired everyone she met. Knowing Lily, loving Lily, and being loved by Lily were transforming. Lily lit up a room when she entered. She met no strangers, and her laughter and zest for life were infectious. As an animal lover, especially cats, she spent time working at the animal shelter in St. John. Lily was everyone’s best friend.
To see Lily dance was awe-inspiring. She was absolutely captivating, and her passion illuminated the stage.  Lily was an accomplished, multi award-winning dancer. In dance, Lily was truly free- free to be herself -free to express herself. Because Lily mentored, impacted, and blessed many people, #LeaveaLegacylikeLily has spread, even in everyone’s sadness.  
As we thank God for his precious gift of Lily, please join us for visitation at First Baptist Church Opelika on Saturday, June 17, from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. The memorial service will follow at 11 o’clock.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Lily’s name to the Lee County Humane Society. A fund will be established at a later date in Lily’s name for #justiceforislandgirls. 
“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.” Psalm 62:5

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
