Sonia Lee Ambrosek

July 12, 2021 — October 28, 2021

Sonia Lee Morris Ambrosek started her life journey July 12, 1954, in Grappenhall, England; she passed from this life on October 28, 2021. Sonia was the daughter of Lilian Doreen Langley Morris and Robert Lee Morris.

Sonia came to the United States at about 18 months of age with her parents and older brother, Howard. They came to eastern Nebraska and then moved to Illinois, where she spent the majority of her childhood.

Sonia married Leslie Ambrosek and moved to southwest Nebraska where she resided until her death. She had a steep learning curve with a different way of life and way of living. Sonia was never one to hesitate to expand her horizons and to learn new things. She embraced her new adventure with good will, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. Sonia arrived as a young city girl and became a very capable mother, wife and business partner. She was a mother to her children, but always had time and attention for many more through the years. She was a mother to all. Sonia was willing to listen and provide guidance to all both young and old. She became a valuable part of the business, especially with the communication with people which she loved to do. Sonia was no stranger to work, working everyday unless confined to bed, mostly for others benefit.

Sonia loved the sunrise and sunset, grandkids projects, and she loved the beauty of the hawks and owls and the mystic powers that they held for her, a love she encouraged others to notice and enjoy.

Sonia was preceded in death by her parents Robert Lee Morris and Lilian Doreen Morris; father-in-law Gerald Andrew Ambrosek; and mother-in-law Eva Emma Tepley Ambrosek and other family members.
