  • I’m so sad to read this notice. Sophie was such a sweet lady and an amazing cook. She was always very kind and welcoming to me all those years ago. Sending my condolences, thoughts and prayers to Zane and the rest of her family.

  • Auntie Sophie always had nice things to say and that wonderful smile when we visited with her. She has joined Uncle John and Dad in heaven where they are probably kibitzing together now. Hugs, Rosann Semchuk
