In loving memory ~

We are so sad to announce the passing of Sonia Nevalainen on May 15, at the age of 84.

Sonia lost her husband Arvo last June and now we like to think maybe they are together again after 65 years of marriage. Arvo and Sonia started their life together down at the coast, before moving to rose lake where they spent many more years. In 1994 they headed to the Bella Coola valley where they lived for the next 30 years, in their spot they called "Paradise" they made lots of good friends in all the places they lived, and everyone enjoyed their company.

Sonia leaves behind their kids - Ellen, Eric, Rick, and foster kid Nancy. Also, grandkids Aric (Jenny) and Riza, as well as great-grandkids Lucy Sienna, Ruby, and Jax.

Rest easy - you will be missed by all.

Love, your family
