Sophie will forever be in our hearts. Her thoughtfulness and generosity made her the beautiful person that she was. From chocolate chip cookies, to chicken and polka dancing and everything in-between, she will always be remembered for the good times she shared with us. May Sophie forever Rest In Peace till we all meet again. We will miss you tremendously.
Sirina Kamieniecki and Rosa Mayer family.

Our Dear Sophie will be missed by all. As time waits for no one. She was always so caring and kind always remembering a Birthday with a special greeting and made you feel Special. so my mom 93 yr old Oma Rosa Mayer says and she will especially miss Sophie as she was one of her last friends she could communicate in Bavarian dialect. They always hung out together on their many Senior outings to Atlantic City. On one of my visits with them I still remember how Sophie just loved the ocean breeze and hanging by the beach. Then we would go eat at one of the many Buffets how she enjoyed just hanging out. She was always so much fun to be around. God Bless Her and may She Rest In Peace. Our heart goes out to Uti and her family . Rose ,Oma Rosa and Family.
