Sonja Jean (Mann) MacKenzie Obituary
Sonja Jean (Mann) MacKenzie
July 21, 1938- February 14, 2014
Born in Burwell, Nebraska to Wayne and Helen Harrod Mann. She moved to California in 1942 and for 55 years was a resident of San Pedro. The last 25 years she divided her time between her two homes, one in San Pedro, the other in Pahrump, Nevada. She was a local Real Estate agent, a Cub Scout leader, a Girl Scout leader, and on the board of the Taper Avenue PTA. She was a Hockey mom, an avid rock collector, loved panning for gold, exploring ghost towns, and the L.A. Kings. For many years she had to file a W2 form on her gambling winnings! She lived to decorate her home(s), spend time with her family and to talk to her friends on the phone. She was always there to hear a problem, solve a dilemma, or just lend an ear. More than all of this, she was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She orchestrated every good fortune for her husband, children and grandchildren... A matriarch in the truest sense of the word. She leaves behind, her husband of 59 years, Donald MacKenzie, her daughter Kelly MacKenzie McNerney (Michael), son Donald MacKenzie Jr. (Socorro), grandsons Joseph and Sean MacKenzie, and granddaughter Jeanne McNerney - along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Services are scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Thursday, February 20, 2014 at McNerney's Mortuary Chapel. Graveside services will follow at Green Hills Memorial Park. Visitation will be Wednesday 4:00 to 7:00 pm at
