I enjoyed waiting on Sophie at Wells Fargo Bank for many years. I just returned from out of town so just now read about Sophie's death. I always looked forward to her coming into the bank and allowing me to help her out with her financial needs. She was a very sweet lady. Sincerely, Audrey Tobin
Sorry for you loss. Thinking of you. Your in our hearts and prayers.
I first met Sophie through the ricecounty piecemakers club and our quilting several things together which was very enjoyable. I got to know her better yet when she lived at Infinia Health Care, although she did not want to stay there I saw her at many other events around town and admired her spirit and determination and energy. I will miss you and a piece of my heart is with you always. Thanks for being my friend.

Please know that Stew's mom is not well and if we do not make it to the wake tomorrow know that our prayers are with your family during this time. Our Sympathies Stew and Cindy Schuenke
