Sondra had the biggest heart! She has welcomed me (and my kiddos) in her home for holidays and family dinners on multiple occasions. She has offered her motherly advice, on more than one occasion too! She is very loved and will be missed greatly!

I worked with Sondra at Belk. I will never forget her laughter, her boldness to share her faith and letting us know there is nothing that God cannot do. Thank you Sondra for teaching me to let God fight my battles. I will miss your presence here on this earth but will meet you again someday on that beautiful shore

I remember Sondra during my days at Charity Baptist Church. What a fun lady she was! I remember thinking that I wanted to be like her😊. She was a great example to me of how you could have fun and be fun and still be a Christian. She will be missed.

I knew Sondra through Celebrate Recovery. I was in a Bible study with her several years ago. She had a vibrant and bubbly personality and an infectious smile and laugh. I live in Texas now, but when I come back to NW Arkansas, I generally sing in the choir. Sondra’s was one of the faces I looked for from the stage. I will miss looking for her… Lots of love and prayers to the family.

Bob and Sondra lived on Janet Street in Springdale. Mandy was the same age as my daughter Sara. Sondra and I used to swim in her pool. We also exercised during the day. She was so much fun to be around. Always had a smile on her face.
