Sandra Salas Miyares
December 23, 1962 – May 9, 2014
An inspirational light to all who knew her, Sandra Miyares lost her brave fight against cancer on May 9. She leaves behind her lifelong sweetheart and loving husband, Marcelino Miyares Jr., devoted father and mother, Juan and Connie Salas, and brother and best friend, Rafael Salas.
Born in Chicago, Sandra met Marcelino 35 years ago when they were both students. They just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.
Her media career at Univision Radio was cut short by her illness, but the company and her colleagues have continued to support her throughout her mighty efforts to find a cure. She touched and enriched so many lives and will be missed by all who knew her.
The world is a kinder, brighter place for her having graced us with her presence. Her light will continue to shine on those who loved her.
Family and friends will gather to celebrate her extraordinary life on Sunday May 11, 2014 from 1:00 pm until 9:00 pm at Rice Mortuary, 5310 Torrance Blvd., Torrance, CA 90503, 310-792-7599. Mass will be held at St. James on 415 Vincent in Redondo Beach, 90277 on Wednesday May 14, 2014 at 10:00 am.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the St. Jude Cancer Center.
