Sonia E Cody

November 9, 1934 - June 13, 2022

Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

To Sonia Sons, I was saddened to see the passing of your mother but she lived a full and beautiful life. As a teacher at Douglas I was blessed to get to know her when she painted the Carrousel building where her work still shines. She was talented and kind and the world was a better place because she was in it. Many blessings to you both. Peace and Joy. Mary Coates

Sonia was a lovely and energetic aunt to my cousin Donna, brother Jerry, and me. We always loved the rare times we got to spend with her and always came away with great stories. The last time I was able to see her was too long ago. My wife and I traveled to Rapid City from Johnson City, Tennessee. We have a terrific Chinese dinner with Aunt Sonia and Bob. The next day, Sonia, seventy-five years old at the time, took us on a whirlwind of a tour through the Black Hills. My wife, Leesa (who had never been in that part of the West and, more importantly, had never met Aunt Sonia), had an awesome time, perhaps a little more death-defying than she was expecting. Try as I might, I couldn't convince Sonia to let me drive, so we careened from one Black Hills site to the next, sometimes with the driver's eyes actually on the road. We survived, and it was a great, great day (only dampened by the absence of Bob, who wasn't able to come along). . . . Even though I saw Aunt Sonia much less than I would have enjoyed over the years, my family (that of her brother-in-law) and I appreciated--too often from afar--all that she did in the care of the uncle we knew as J.C. (And we appreciate the care that Bob provided her in her last years.) . . . She was amazing, and my trips into the West will be diminished by her absence.

Sonia, What a kind soul. you always hunted me down at the credit union to see how I was doing and check on the family. My daughter was amazed of your Art ability and loved when you substituted. Heaven has a new angel.

I enjoyed assisting Sonia in painting the circus animals in Carousel school. She was afraid of heights so I was there to remind her and make sure she was secure and safe. The whole time talking and teaching art. What a Beautiful and Super lady.

She was living, walking, smiling kindness. Grieving with the family today and all that were blessed to have known her.

Sonia Cody was a grand lady, a talented artist, a delightful conversationalist, a loving wife to Jim, and a devoted mother to Paul and Bob. Many came to know her through her dedicated years of volunteering at Douglas High School, where she was an ever-present parent and a loyal booster. Back in the mid to late 1970s, Sonia would hand decorate a commemorative football and basketball for every home game to be raffled as a fundraiser. Some of us still have one of these prized mementos. She was a gentlewoman, who lived an energetic and venturous life and was a friend cherished by many throughout the community. Let us all take the time to enjoy a lovely spot of tea as a toast to such a dear, lovely woman. Jeff & Cindy Bailie
