Obituary for Sonna Marilyn O'Dowd

Sonna Marilyn O'Dowd, age 80, loving Mother of five, grandmother, sister, aunt, and so much more. She gained her wings on the 18th of February and left us to be with Jesus Christ. Her whole family was surrounding her with love and presence in her time of passing. Sonna was always surrounded by her large family and was active in being with them.

She has 5 children, Patricia Marie Piro, Christine Louise Piro, Samuel Vincent Piro Jr., Cynthia Marilyn Piro, and Vincent John Piro. She was a grandmother to 12 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and five great-great grandchildren. Sonna was known to her grandchildren as “Nonny”.

She was always a loving, caring, and strong woman that continued to show her strength even during trials. She was dedicated to all her children and a Godly woman. As a mother she was genuine, transparent, respected and honest. She was the most selfless women and was blessed to pass with her Big sister Mary Lou, nephew Donnie Teller, and niece Debbie Mercurio by her side.

In her free time, she loved to take small trips to Laughlin and enjoyed her time there. Her favorite games were video draw poker, wheel a fortune, and the triple diamond slot machine. During her time of leisure she would watch Wheel a Fortune, Let’s Make a Deal, Match Game, and Law and Order.

She believed it was very important to stay active and involved with her family. She will be greatly missed by all her friends and family. Although we do know she is in heaven worshipping God, and dancing with some of her children, family and friends. She will always be adored and will remain in our hearts, until we meet again.
