Of Everett. Beloved partner of the late Melvin (Kenny) Butler went peacefully to be with God on her next leg of the journey on October 18th, 2023 after a lengthy illness.

Sona always believed that laughter was the best way to face life’s challenges and this belief helped her and so many others to face the hard times in life with a smile and humor. Sona was an extremely kind and caring person who touched so many people’s lives and will never ever be forgotten. She cared very deeply for her family, many friends and pets and will be so deeply missed by them all. To honor her memory, Sona has requested that each person reading this notice will pay forward an act of kindness –no matter how big or small – to any person or animal in need. Sona’s funeral service will be private.
