Dorothy Sonnenberg

On Thursday, February 21st 2013, Dorothy Sonnenberg passed away peacefully at 90 years of age.

Dorothy grew up in Salmon Arm and was a long-time resident of the Thompson area. She will be remembered as a gentle and loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. For many years, Dorothy was very active with the Chase and North Shore Lions. Her caring and generous spirit also led her to donate her time and energy to knitting over one hundred teddy bears for sick children.

Dorothy is predeceased by her loving husband, Harry. She will be greatly missed by her son Harry, of Dawson Creek, BC, daughters Sheron (Verne) Erickson of Tsawwassen, BC, Dianne (Peter) Englisch of Kamloops BC, Tannis (Tony) Read of Kelowna, BC, Jo-Anne (Ron) Guglich of Lamont, Alberta, ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

The family would like to express its sincere gratitude to the staff of the Kamloops Seniors Village as well as Louise Peters and the parishioners of St. Paul’s Cathedral for their aid and support.

Those who wish may make a donation in Dorothy’s name to the Camp Winfield Improvement Fund, 1790 Davidson Rd., Winfield, BC, V4V 1J8
