Sonja Webb

December 6, 1939 - December 25, 2013


With family by her side, mom peacefully passed away late Christmas night after several years of illness. Mom was born in Svendborg, Denmark and moved to Canada with her family in 1957 when she was 17.  While working at BCFP she met her best friend and future husband Ernie Webb.  In 44 years of marriage they raised two daughters, and enjoyed time with their two grandchildren. Mom loved spending time in her garden and greenhouses tending her dahlias and creating beautiful hanging baskets and planters.  Mom and Dad had many hobbies they loved to do together, including travelling, shuffleboard, going to the casino and singing Karaoke. Mom is survived by her husband Ernie, daughters Penny (Phil) Parsons, Christa Webb, grandchildren Erika and Aidan Parsons, brothers Poula and Heine Larsen, sister Jytte and many extended family members.  Mom had a great love for her family and friends and enjoyed life to the fullest. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Our family would like to thank Rae Marie Nekleva (The Gatehouse Adult Care Ltd) and Jacquie Marsh for helping Mom find her peace. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke foundation in mom’s name.

Relation: Daughter's friend

It was with great sadness that I heard about Sonja’s death. Although I haven’t seen the family much except in passing for the past few years, I remember them all so fondly. I grew up with Penny and Christa and I remember Sonja as a particularly warm and lovely person, always with a smile, and kind words. This family are lovely, friendly, positive wonderful people, and I know Sonja was very proud of her children and grandchildren. Sonja will be greatly missed by the community and by her friends and family. It is a shock that she died so young. Please accept our family’s condolences. May your fond and happy memories bring you peace.

Dear Ernie, Penny, Christa and family,

We are so very sorry to hear of Sonja’s passing. We have wonderful memories of the time we spent with the Midget ‘B’ team of 1983-84, and 1984-85. Our son, Darryl, stayed at your house on many weekends when the boys had early morning games. We shared motel rooms with you for tournaments on the mainland. These were fun times for the team and parents alike.

Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
