Sonja Britt Lawrence was born on May 23, 1966 and slipped into eternal life on June 22, 2023.
Born in Milwaukee, WI, she has been a resident of Wilmington, NC for the past 20 years. Sonja, a devoted daughter, was the love of her parents; the late James “C” Lawrence, Jr. and Jean B. Lawrence. She valued education and obtained degrees from Marquette University and Norfolk State University. She continued expanding her knowledge with several certifications and certificates in various disciplines. Sonja loved and appreciated her family and friends. Affectionate towards her Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Sisters, she valued the bonds created by the Sisterhood. She was an enthusiastic “Cheese Head” who loved the Green Bay Packers. She loved all her dogs, past and present. Max, her current loyal, loving Bichon Frise, held a special place in her heart, despite his dislike for anyone except Sonja and her mom.
