Sonia graduated from high school in Baltimore, Md. She went on to become a fashion model, and she loved to paint, garden and redecorate. She was a talented cosmetologist, even owning her own beauty salon out of her South Thomaston home for several years.

Sonia had many passions, but devoted her life to her special needs daughter, Heidi Lee, of Owls Head.

Sonia was a favorite among staff at Windward Gardens, where she resided since May 2019. Family was important to Sonia, and she especially loved Christmas. She will be sadly missed by many. Sonia was feisty, quick-witted, fun, quirky and had an adventurous personality.
