It is with great sadness that the family of Sonia Luba Hosfield (nee Beyak) announces her peaceful passing on August 7, 2020, after a short stay at Riverview Health Centre.
She leaves to mourn her children, Pam (Peter), Kari (Harry), Tom (Marilyn), and Andrea; her grandchildren, Jeremy, Bradley (Jen), Maggie (Claude), Megan (Scott), Andrew, Brendan (Brooke), Alex, and Keenan; her great-grandchildren, Abagail, Leah and Henry; her sister Sylvia; and her many nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. Her niece Valli held a special place in her heart. She was predeceased by her husband Harvey and her beloved brothers.
Sonia was born in Vita, Manitoba, and spent her formative years in Rainy River, working at the family hotel. It was here where she met and married Harvey and had three of their children. They moved to Winnipeg and lived here for six decades.
Sonia led a very full life. She played piano, excelled at school, curled, golfed, bowled, played bridge and other card games, and loved to cook and bake. She enjoyed the ballet, symphony, theatre, opera, and was an ardent Jets fan. She and Harvey travelled the world and had great stories to share. They spent much time with many lifelong friends with whom they enjoyed endless card games, delicious dinner parties, and robust conversations.
Throughout Sonia's life she put into action her beliefs. She was a youth volunteer at the church when the family moved to Winnipeg, and attended St. Aidan's Anglican Church, where she volunteered for years. She was on the founding board of Osborne House, volunteered at the YWCA, and delivered Meals on Wheels with Harvey. Sonia was a lifelong proud member and supporter of the Liberal Party. She instilled this volunteerism into her children.
For those who knew our mom she was a caring, dynamic, spirited woman who will be sorely missed.
We would like to thank her doctors and the CancerCare team, the Community Palliative Care team, and her nurse Maureen and all the staff at Riverview for looking after Mom.
Due to COVID-19, no formal service will be held. A private Celebration of Life for Sonia and interment will be planned for a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined.
