February 21, 1928 - July 3, 2012
One of the first original "Soccer Moms" has passed. Born in Eschwege, Germany, Sofie was the last remaining family member of 10 children, 5 boys and 5 girls. She will reunite with husband, Eric, who passed in March 1988. Sofie spent her early years and her 20's in this small German town. She met Eric shortly after WWII; they got married and decided to move to the U.S. Through a church sponsorship program, they arrived in Denver, Colorado in 1952. Along with Eric, Sofie helped start the first youth soccer program in Colorado. In 1961, the league was started in Aurora, Colorado. Eric's job with Continental Airlines had them relocate to the LAX area, where they landed in Torrance in 1966. Both sons, Charles and Peter, went to South High. Charles graduated in 1970, and Peter in 1974. They both still live in Torrance - Charles and his wife, Meg and Peter and his wife, Ellie.
