Sonia A. Mathias, born on September 20, 1940 in Lewiston, Maine, passed away on December 7, 2015, after a short, painless illness. She was the daughter of Marcel and Aurore Garon.
For many years, both before and after earning her MSW degree, she worked for nonprofit organizations providing assistance to homeless, abused and developmentally disadvantaged children. After retirement she enjoyed working in her large garden, volunteering for a cat rescue organization, playing with her dogs and visiting with her grandchildren. She moved to an independent living facility in 2014, where she participated in exercise and other activities and made many new friends.
Sonia’s parents and her only sister, Claudette, predeceased her. She is survived by her daughter Monica, her son Fletcher, her granddaughters Haley and Severine and her husband Nick.
