Sophie was a life-long, faithful member of St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Church in Northampton. She spent most of her life as a homemaker, except for the years she worked in the garment industry. Later, she spent time at her beloved “garden shop”. It was a job she loved!
Sophie was a phenomenal baker, cook, seamstress, and gardener of both vegetables and flowers. Most of her meals were prepared with items right from her garden. She was a devoted mother, loving baba and doting big-baba. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
The family would like to extend special appreciation to all those who tended to Sophie at Phoebe Nursing Home. The staff and especially their manager, Manny, truly cared for her.
Sophie is survived by three daughters: Monica, wife of Thomas Tassi, North Catasauqua; Patricia, wife of Martin Hacker, North Catasauqua; and Roxane, wife of Daniel Guzie, Allentown; seven grandchildren: Tara Winkelbauer, T.J. Tassi, Michael Hacker, Kathryn Pammer, Belle Hacker, Rebecca Keck, and Anthony Guzie; and nine great-grandchildren: Derrick Russell, Gianna Winkelbauer, Cecelia Winkelbauer, Jacob Tassi, Hailey Baez, Gavin Hacker, Weston Pammer, Bowen Pammer and Lennon Keck. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a son, Stephen John and six sisters: Mary Mayorak, Anna Krawchuk, Helen Novak, Rose Zwiryk, Catherine Terleski, and Margaret Matika.
