Sonja Barth Moreno, 68, passed peacefully Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2014, surrounded by her loved ones.
She was born to Einar and Ellinor Barth in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Sonja was retired from Nocatee Elementary where she helped many students through the Title One program and continued to support the school through Angel Tree continuously since her retirement. She was a devout Christian and a proud member of both Trinity UMC and Pleasant Hill UMC. Any way she could help those in need in DeSoto County, she was always there. Sonja was president of the Sons of Norway in Port Charlotte, Fla., for the past 15 years and a member since 1996 as she held her Norwegian heritage close to her heart. As a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and best friend to all that knew her, she will be missed deeply.
She is survived by her husband Emigdio Moreno; two sons, Joseph Galicia and Rafael Moreno; daughter, Suzanne Price; three grandchildren, Christopher Galicia, Joseph Galicia and Jennifer Galicia; great-grandson, Joey Galicia; brother, Richard Barth; sister, Ruth MacDonald; and many cousins and dear friends.
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation for her family in her name through Seacoast National Bank, 1601 E. Oak Street, Arcadia, FL 34266.
