In her younger years, she sang in the Church Choir, was a Cub Scout Leader, served on the Church Altar Society Ways and Means Committee, and volunteered at her Church. She was a member of Rockhurst Mothers Club, St. Agnes Altar Society Sacred Heart Circle #3 and Our Lady of Fatima Circle. She was also an excellent seamstress and quilter.

She was also an avid reader. She was preceded in death by her husband, Mike, son Gary, sister Bernice Bukaty, brothers Stanley and Edward Bortko. She is survived by her son, Michael, daughter Vicki Smith (Tom), granddaughters Valerie Beachy (Bobby) and Madeline Cook (Kevin), and sister-in-law Delores Bortko. Her granddaughters gave their Babka so much joy. The family thanks Sophie’s priests, Fr Jerry Arano-Ponce, Msgr Lawrence Bukaty (nephew), and Fr Bill Porter for their religious and spiritual support.
