She finally settled into a position as an employment and training counselor first with the state and then with the city of Minneapolis where she finished her career.

Sondra loved to travel. Her favorite trip was to San Francisco in 1967, The Summer of Love, during which time she attended The Monterey Pop Festival. Later in life she joyfully traveled with John to Saint Lucia, to the Oregon Coast, New Orleans, The Republic of Panama, and New Mexico as well as a number of trips to Florida.

It was a pleasure to spend time with her and she enjoyed nothing more than entertaining her friends. She will be missed.
