Sonya was known as the cool aid mom and boo boo healer to all the children in the neighborhood when her children were younger. She donated to every charity that she could and was known for her giving heart. Sonya later became a Nurse and took care of special needs and gifted adults and children for fourteen years. She also had a patent for a swing arm chair to make it easier for the disabled to get from their wheel chair to their chair. When she finally moved to Massachusetts she loved to feed every animal that came into the yard but especially the bears. She had names for every bear and would hand feed them cookies and snacks. She loved being outside working in her yard and flower beds until she became ill.
Sonya was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother and is loved now and forever. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends. Sonya was a very happy and generous person to all and the world was a better place because of her. And now heaven will have another Angel to watch over us.
