We Remember


December 9, 1941 — June 12, 2023

Sonjia passed away peacefully on June 12, 2023, in Kelowna, BC. She was born in Toronto, Ontario. When she arrived in the Okanagan, she made sure to live her life to the full in BC. Sonjia would join Gordon while he worked as a truck driver. And they had many adventures together while trucking.

She will be greatly missed by all who had the honour of knowing her. Her husband Gordon will especially miss her as they were always together, at each other’s side. Sonjia was also survived by her daughter Linda.  She was predeceased by her parents, her younger brother, and her son Glen.

There will be a Memorial Service to honor Sonjia on Saturday, July 15, 2023, at 2:30 PM, at Orchard City Seventh Day Adventist Church, 1710 Garner Road, Kelowna, BC.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
