Obituary of Sonia Faye Carlson
Sonia was born in Amherst, Colorado to Theodore Weyerts and Merna Folker Weyerts. She was the middle of three children. Sonia graduated from Holyoke High School in 1956. At the age of 18, she moved to Denver to attend Central Business School. After graduating she started working at Equitable Life Insurance. She began attending St. John’s Lutheran Church in Denver and was a member of the youth Walther League where she met her future husband and lifelong friends. Sonia married Donald Carlson in 1962. They moved to Lakewood, Colorado in 1964 where they raised their two children, Mitchell and Tami. They were married for over 55 years. While her children were younger, she a was a homemaker caring for them as well as fostering newborn babies. In the late 70’s, she went back to work in the banking industry at Capital Federal Savings, where she worked for many years. In the early 1990’s, Sonia began working as an executive assistant in the Denver IRS office. She retired in 1999 to help care for her elderly mother and her young grandchildren. She and Don enjoyed many years of travelling all over the country during their marriage. In later years, they relished many long road-trips with her sister and brother-in-law. They were charter members of Concordia Lutheran Church, heavily involved with church activities and Sonia served several years as church secretary. In her free time, Sonia enjoyed getting together with friends and family, hosting dinner parties, bowling, and playing cards and other games. Sonia was the ultimate caregiver always looking out for others above herself. She had a heart of gold, was so kind and gentle and had a great sense of humor. She always had a smile on her face, was easy to laugh and gracious to the very end. Sonia was preceded in death by her husband, Don, her mother, father, and brother Douglas. Sonia is survived by her son Mitchell and wife Maureen, daughter Tami and husband Sean Murphy, two grandchildren Elizabeth and Evan, sister Nancy Koratich and husband Jim, her niece Diane, as well as other family and many friends. Sonia was a friend to all and loved her family and friends unconditionally. We feel grateful and truly blessed for all the years we had with her. She will be dearly missed and will remain in our hearts forever.
