Dora Elva Zertuche

February 20, 1942 –
 March 8, 2023


Dora Elva Zertuche was born in Anáhuac, Nuevo León, Mexico on February 20, 1942 and passed away on March 8, 2023 in Dallas, Texas. She immigrated to the United States in the 1960s, where she married her first husband and had two children. She worked for many years in a manufacturing facility then went on to build and manage a myriad entertainment businesses, primarily catering to the Mexican community. She is survived by her husband, Vidal Jara, with whom she was married for almost 30 years of joy and companionship. They lived in Carrollton, Texas from the day they met until the day she passed. Dora is also survived by her son and daughter, Tony Zertuche and Denise Webb, and grandchildren, Michael, Lizeth, Lily, and JD. She was completely devoted to her family, especially her children and grandchildren, and sacrificed immensely throughout her life for their upbringing. She was a wonderful human who touched so many lives and made impacts on almost every person who was so fortunate to have met her. It is in that spirit that we ask you all to raise a glass of tequila in her name and help us honor this incredible woman. We love you Mama and will miss you so much.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
