My Mother, Daughter and I had the honor picking up and attending a Church service @ Proctor and then enjoying a picnic afterward with Sonja. I will always remember my Daughter singing Silent night in German, one Christmas Eve, with Sonja right next to her. Sonja will for sure be missed..

You are a lovely person and will be missed. It thrilled you when we brought you German liverwurst from The North Market. Rest In Peace.

Sonja will be greatly missed! I enjoyed getting to know her the past few years through Altrusa. She was a very generous donor to Carnegie Library and funded many projects for the Children's Dept. She would always say upon presenting us with a donation, "This is for the children of Fayette County". The "100 Best Children's Books" collection in the library is named in her honor. I will always hold special memories of Sonja!

What a special lady. I was blessed to have her in my life for so many years. She will be missed here on earth, but I am sure she is celebrating with her beloved husband.
