Sonia Winfield passed away peacefully at home with her family on January 2, 2009 after a two year struggle with cancer. Sonia was born in Middlesex, England and immigrated to California in 1957 with her husband and two children.
She was a very generous, charming, and beautiful woman. Very clever and witty with a gift for the gab; she loved life and people, had a passion for liberal politics and never let a day go by without completing the crossword puzzle.
She lived in the San Luis and Santa Barbara Counties for the past 20 years. She is survived by her devoted husband John of 63 years, two loving children John and Susan, 3 sisters and 3 brothers, 5 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren.
She will be dearly missed by everyone she touched. A Celebration of Life Party will be held at her daughter’s house in Summerland on January 17th @ 2pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details. In lieu of flowers please send donations in her name to the Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care of Santa Barbara, 222 East Canon Perdido St. 93101.
