She was always ready for anything. Sophie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please make donations to Arizona's
or an Alzheimer's organization of your choice. The family also asks that prayers be sent to all the employees at The Woodmark and the SPA where Sophie was able to live her last two years surrounded by abundant care and love. Memorial services for Sophie's family and friends will be announced at a later time.
