Sonya was an animal lover with particular fondness of horses. She was an accomplished rider and enjoyed trail rides.
Sonya will be remembered for her curious and loving spirit, as well as her warmth, sensitivity and sense of humor. Sonya was admired for her amazing ability to grow beautiful flower gardens. Her wild flowerbeds were picture -perfect. Sonya like to build things. She enjoyed cooking, baking and sewing. One of her most notable projects was building a pole barn. Her flair and passion to create was robust. Sonya had a lust for life and enjoyed spending time with her family and close circle of friends.
Sonya is survived by her husband Brad Leedham, her son Klein Leedham, her parents Larry and Judy Wrolstad, and her sister Leslie Wrolstad. She lives on in the hearts of all she touched.
A Celebration of Life to honor Sonya will be held on a date to be determined. Those wishing to make a donation in Sonya’s memory can mail checks payable to: Molalla Ambulance C/O Molalla Fire District, PO Box 655, Molalla, OR 97038.
