Yolanda Torres, a beacon of joy and love, was born on June 29, 1936, to her parents David Guzman and Cristiana Maldonado Guzman.

On May 22 1965, Yolanda united in marriage with her soulmate, Victor Manuel Torres Sr. Together, they embarked on a journey of love and companionship that spanned many joyful years. Yolanda’s dedication and warmth extended beyond her marriage as she became the loving mother of Jeannina and Victor along with their spouses: Carlos and Christina.

Yolanda was a force of nature, embodying qualities that endeared her to everyone she met. Her cheerfulness, determination, energy, forgiveness, friendliness, generosity, and boundless love enriched the lives of those around her. Her memory will forever inspire and remind us of the beauty that exists in kindness and compassion.
