Sophia was happiest being a “Nana” to her beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren, was always busy with her hands knitting and crocheting, and was easy to find working on a crossword or word search puzzle.

Final memorial arrangements for Sophia are private at her family’s convenience.

Please honor her with a memorial donation to The Grafton Food Bank, PO Box 324, Grafton, MA 01519.
