A devoted mom and daughter, a dancer, cake baker and outgoing, loyal lover-of-life.
Those terms from friends described Neiky Pardo after the medical secretary was killed early Thursday while crossing a dark, rain-slick street in front of her mom's apartment building.
"She was a dancer, an excellent, beautiful mother," Salsa teacher Terry Zaifman said after dropping Pardo's mother, Eva Vasquez, at her Lawrence Ave. W. flat east of Dufferin St.
Vasquez was too upset to talk about her daughter.
"She was a very compassionate young lady," Zaifman said, adding Pardo sponsored her mom to move to Toronto.
Born in Morón, a city of 60,000 in central Cuba, she arrived 12 years ago and became a Canadian citizen. Her daughter, Monica, 7, was born here.
Trained as a ballerina and Salsa dancer, Pardo, 33, enjoyed baking cakes, dancing and "different things" to enjoy life, Zaifman said.
Also a keen dancer, Monica was at school when her mom began crossing the darkened street to catch a bus at 6:57 a.m.
Toronto Police said a westbound 2004 Nissan driven by a 28-year-old man hit Pardo, then an eastbound 2006 Volvo a 52-year-old man drove.
Police could not confirm reports of pedestrians and motorists manoeuvring around her body without stopping.
When pedestrians are killed or injured crossing a street mid-block, charges are rare.
Const. Clint Stibbe said Traffic Services investigators "don't see any criminality and, as a result, charges are unlikely."
Choking on her words, Alisa Brumenthal said her best friend was heading for the doctor's clinic where they worked together for 10 years.
"She was very outgoing and had lots of laughs," Brumenthal said. "She loved life."
Calling her "a very, very caring person," she said Pardo taught her Spanish, Cuban cooking and Salsa dancing.
They also visited her friend's family in Cuba, "where her final resting place will be after a service this weekend," Brumenthal whispered. "I will miss her more than you will know."
