Aunt Sophia was a beautiful ,kind woman who was so devoted to her family and her faith. Living so close to the Erdman clan on Greengarten, we have many happy memories with our cousins growing up. I remember Aunt Sophia's beautiful voice at the Mass choir on Sundays. Deepest and heartfelt condolences to the entire Kloecker family, Mary (Lou) Mullenhoff (Erdman)
