November 15 1923 – October 10 2014
Sonja Faintuch passed away on October 10, 2014 surrounded by her children.
Sonja and her husband Henry had 3 children; Helene Kesten, Shelley Faintuch, and Jack Faintuch, Daughter in law Tamara Faintuch and Son in law Cyril Kesten. 8 grandchildren and 4 great grand children.
The legacy and gift that Sonja leaves behind is a passion for the care of our Senior population. As Henry’s right hand at the Sharon Home, Sonja honored a very important Mitzvah: To care with respect and concern for one’s elders; for our Babi’s and Zaidas. Sonja provided an environment of beauty and dignity for all of our grandmothers, grandfathers,and great grandparents. This was a world that she embraced every day of the week for the 46 years she spent at the Sharon Home.
We will remember the grace and elegance with which she conducted her life. Her intelligent and organized approach to everything touched all of our lives. Our mother will be missed by all of her family; but remembered for her amazing contribution to our lives and to the life of Jewish Seniors in Winnipeg. Contributions can be made in Sonja’s memory to the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba.
