Sonia was born on May 1, 1937 to the late Ben Overbeck and Rose Hecht Overbeck in Kansas City. She graduated from Southwest High School in 1955 and attended the University of Oklahoma. The Overbeck family were long term members of Beth Shalom Synagogue in Kansas City. Sonia’s passion was always her family. After raising her two sons in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she returned to Kansas City in the 1990’s to be close to and care for her loving parents. She worked for many years as the building manager at the Montreux On the Plaza and then Oak Hall communities in Kansas City. She was also an enthusiastic volunteer at various Kansas City cultural institutions, most notably the Nelson Atkins Museum. Sonia moved to Scottsdale, Arizona in 2016 to be closer to her family and enjoy the warmer weather. Among her many accomplishments was becoming a duplicate bridge three-time life master. Her sons also remember her as unbeatable at gin rummy. She was an enthusiastic presence at any of her grandchildren’s activities, including innumerable band and orchestra concerts, and sporting events. Sonia is survived by her 2 sons and a daughter-in-law: Jeff, of Chandler, Arizona and David and Gretchen Livingston of Evanston Illinois. She has 3 loving grandchildren: Nathan, Clara and Noah Livingston. She will also be missed by her many friends.
