Miroslava was born in Quito, Ecuador on July 24, 1951 to Cumanda Ubillus and Galo Torres De la Torre (both deceased). She developed a love for dance at an early age and was a professional ballet dancer in Quito, before immigrating to the United States in 1973. Her life in the U.S matched her energy and passion for dance, fashion and friends.
It was during a night out dancing with her close girlfriend that she met the love of her life, and her only husband, Dan Young. Their marriage would be a true love story that found them sharing exotic travel, beautiful beaches, their shared loved of music, fine wine, cooking gourmet meals and sharing the home they loved with family and friends.
Style was immensely important to her. So important that she would not show her face outside of her bedroom door in the morning without lipstick, mascara and earrings on. Just ask anyone who ever spent the weekend how gorgeous she was in the morning. Her beauty and style did however, cause her to run late on dinner plans yet it was always worth it. Miroslava was always a showstopper, even though she never wore any colors except black and white. She loved wearing noticeable earrings and crosses. Only those close to her knew how truly beautiful she was inside.
When it came to friends and laughter, Miroslava had a limitless supply. People were drawn to her beauty and sophisticated style, but kept coming back for her open heart and never ending optimism. "Miroslavita" never had a bad word to say about people and she was the 'ambassador of the family' guiding us to see the best of one another. She was a fierce defender of her family and closest friends. She will be missed beyond words.
