Sonya Hothian "Sonny" Tromel Obituary
May 28, 1937 -
December 31, 2018

Sonny passed away December 31, 2018 at Pete Moore Hospice house. She was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and moved to California when she was 10. It was a positive move for her, and she always felt better living in the West. She proudly graduated from John Burroughs High School in Burbank, California. During her early working years as a medical assistant, she met her lifelong mate and married in 1961. They honeymooned on the coast of California, where both of her children were born. She enjoyed an active family life, traveling, camping and visiting much of the US. In 1983, Sonny and her husband chose Eugene to be their forever place. With her sons enrolled in colleges in Eugene and Corvallis, Sonny enrolled at LCC and focused on the Arts, being awarded a prized Associate of Arts degree accompanied by being a member of Phi Theta Kappa. Sonny and her husband held season tickets with Eugene Symphony and Mozart players, and she loved the Broadway musicals that came to the Hult.

Sonny is survived by her husband Rick Tromel, and sons Chris Tromel of Oregon City, Oregon and Keith Tromel of Exeter, California.
