Sonia Youssef Azer went to be with The Lord on January 12, 2016; she would have been 69 on January 26. Sonia was born in Cairo, Egypt and married her loving husband, Gad Amin Azer on May 27, 1972. They were blessed with two daughters, Mary and Sally. The family emigrated to the United States from Egypt on August 4, 1996. Sonia is preceded in death by her father, Youssef Naguib Abrahim, her mother, Laila Marcos, and her sister, Sylvia Youssef Naguib. She is survived by her husband Gad, daughters Mary and Sally; sister Souzanne and brother in law Nabil, sister Samira and brother in law Sabry, and her brother Samir. She was a loving aunt to Lydia, Joseph, Chris, Emad, Mariam, Sarah and Nancy.

Sonia was dedicated to her prayers and reading the Bible, particularly the Book of Psalms. She was devoted to her husband and daughters, and they were equally devoted to her. Her smile and her laugh will be remembered by all and she loved to laugh often. Sonia received her Bachelors of Science degree in Economics and Political Science from the University of Cairo and then worked as a Financial Analyst for the Egyptian Government. She was an accomplished seamstress and loved to embroider and knit. Her family will always remember her elegance and her bright smile that lit up every room she entered.
