Sophie was a member of St. John Evangelist Catholic Parish since residing with her daughter and son-in-law in Kohler for the past three years ago. Sophie enjoyed playing cards with the Klub 55 group and at the Life Center at Blessed Trinity parish. She also golfed, bowled, watched Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune TV shows and Brewer and Packer games. She loved going out with family and friends. At 97 she learned to play mahjong and became an avid player. Amazingly faith-filled, she was kindhearted and generous. She was outgoing, always with a positive attitude, and a stylish wardrobe.
