Sonja was such a sweet, loving and caring friend. From high school (Overton '65) to now, I always loved to talk with her and remember some old stories. But, mostly, I loved to hear he sing! She was so very talented. My favorite was her "Bobby McGee".
Rest in Peace, Lady Songbird

Sonja had a wonderful spirit, lived a trul Christian life and was good to everyone she knew.

She helped our Overton class of ‘65’ through events we could never have had otherwise.
She was our leader when we needed one, fun to be with and I know how much tireless work she put in on our committees for the reunions.
We all worked hard but no one took on the responsibility and hours in that she did for all of us.
She made us all shine.
If you’ve never been on a class committee then the amount of work on one is almost overwhelming for the leader. She was always there for us month after month, being a great friend.

Aside from all her selfless help, she was as beautifully artistic lady making wonderful jewelry that I’m thankful to have a piece of. .

I’m sure I speak for all members of our class that Sonja is remembered more than fondly.
We will miss her and her sweetness.
