In loving memory of Sonia Denise Rangeley, who sadly passed away on 10th September after a short illness. Sonia will be hugely missed by her daughter Julie, daughter in law Kay, grandchildren Lauren, Kira and Ben, sister Janet and family in Australia and loving brother in law Les Edwards and his family.

Born at her mothers home in Calne in 1948, Sonia grew up flitting between her family home and that of her older sister Maisie’s house (where she invariably got more treats and spoilt by Maisie and Les). Completing her education at John Bentley grammar school, Sonia went on to various jobs - from running a newsagent in London, being a receptionist at WHSmiths, supervisor at Tricom Borer and finally working at a school outfitters in Swindon.

Lifes journey took Sonia all over southern England and even across the world. Moving out of Calne to Swindon, to Australia, London and Devon but always returning to her home town Calne in between. During her life, Sonia enjoyed many interests including folk music, painting and sketching, reading, her garden (although she always swore she didn’t know what anything was or how to care for it), crafts such as cross stitch, knitting, country walks and quilting (the quilting 6). Sonia also loved to travel, whether around the UK on family / friends holidays or further abroad (including taking Julie on her first international holiday to Rhodes in 2011). Sonia also loved shopping and finding bargains, frequently joining friends and Julie on shopping trips (and successfully helping them part with their cash for that much needed item).
In later life, Sonia found faith in her church and received much support and friendship from her congregation. Sonia also loved being a supporter of Chatterbox parent and toddler group and church social events.

Finally settling in Quemerford Calne, Sonia had many wonderful and supportive friends and neighbours around her and will always be remembered, not only as the lady forever dragging her lovely but stubborn cairn terrier Tandy along the street for walks (and carrots) but also as a wonderful soul in all of our lives.

Gone too soon, but never forgotten Mum. You will always be in our hearts.
