Sonia was a cherished neighbour to my late grandparents. Our entire family loved Sonia for her beautiful spirit, her knowledge, her quick wit and her infectious laugh. Margaret, Denise and myself (Deana) would like to extend our condolences to the Cobourne family. We thank you for sharing your loving sister, mom and auntie with the rest of us. We truly, as a community, were all richer for knowing Sonia
I was so very sorry to hear of Sonia’s passing. I knew her from Sat. Evening church and like the others we sit with we will miss her..her fabulous hugs, her beautiful smile and her sense of humor. My sympathies are with her family and may she rest in peace.
Sonia was a beautiful friend and will forever be missed xoxo
Sonia was a wonderful, gentle, gracious and welcoming person. My husband and I would chat with her at St. Joseph Church on Saturdays. She was a loyal member of our Catholic Women’s League and often talked about her family whom she dearly loved.
I wish to extend our deepest sympathy, to her family members and closest friends.
May Sonia rest in Peace.
Maureen and Paul Harper
Sonia, may you rest in eternal peace. I have known you my whole life. You were ever present, thoughtful and kind. In recent times you really helped me and my family so much after my mom passed. You provided us with such wisdom and love. I am forever grateful. You will be sadly missed, but I know that you are having some laughs with my mom right now.
