Sonya Kaye Summers, 55 of Glasgow passed away Thursday morning January 7, 2021 at her home. She was born on May 17th, 1965 the daughter of Andrew Hardin “Bud” and Bonnie Northrop Summers. She was a 1983 graduate from Winchester high School.
She enjoyed playing soft ball in high school and on the church league and on many other leagues throughout her life.
She was on the ambulance squad in the mid to late eighties. She made many of friends while she was on there and she mentioned many of times to friends that was when she found her faith thanks to the late Kaye Stice.
She loved riding and showing horses as a kid and spending time on the farm with her grandparents. And hanging with her parents at Little Ponderosa with the Bracketts’.
She loved to play darts and cards and played on many of leagues through the years. When she would walk in, she would say all right boys get your wallets out I will be taking home what is in them.
She enjoyed riding her beloved motorcycle and spending time with her friends and family. She maybe did not always see eye to eye with you, but she never stopped caring.
She worked in the Springfield school district as a teacher assistant with children that had learning disabilities. And got attached to many of the students. Because she showed them compassion and would give them encouragement that they could succeed.
She cherished her friends and never met a stranger she left smiles on people faces wherever she went, she truly touched many lives, and she would of gave anyone the shirt on her back and the last dollar in her pocket if she thought they needed it.
She will be greatly missed by all.
