Hendrika Catherina Sofonio Palm Springs - Our beloved mother, Hendrika Catherina Sofonio, passed away peacefully during the evening hours of June 11, 2020. As a dedicated wife, devoted mother, loving grandmother, and trusted friend, Hendrika has shared her love for life and adventure, and her refreshing humor and optimism, bringing joy to our family and the desert community. Born in Frederiksoord, Netherlands, on August 2, 1935, she was 84 years old at the time of her death. She moved to California when she was 24 years old and has lived here ever since. Hendrika was married to Lawrence Sofonio, CPA and hotelier. Hendrika and Lawrence worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for their three children and she was constantly at her husband's side as he developed various projects in the Palm Springs area. As a young mother, Hendrika kept busy as a volunteer for the "Kids are Different" educational program where she traveled to elementary schools throughout the state to educate students about children with disabilities. She was active in the Desert's Junior League and National Charity League. Lawrence and Hendrika supported numerous charitable organizations, most notably St. Theresa Catholic Church. Hendrika and Lawrence were married for 60 years until his death in 2019. Hendrika will be welcomed into Heaven by her loving husband. She was loved dearly by many and will be deeply missed by her son, Mark and wife, Caroline; her daughter, Bianca and husband, Roger Carter; and her youngest son Rex and wife, Ashley. She was blessed to have 8 grandchildren: Vincent, William and Winston Sofonio; Ronan and Natasha Carter; Colten, Rocco and Tidus Sofonio.
