Obituary

Sonia Olive Salmon-Potter was born on February 10, 1952, to Vasilda Salmon nee Brown and Jethro Salmon in Kingston, Jamaica. She was the second child of eight children. Sonia was suddenly called to be with the Lord on October 1, 2019, at Memorial West Hospital, Pembroke Pines, Florida. Sonia has finally reunited with her parents and only soulmate, her “Dear Angus.” She obtained her formal education at Half Way Tree Primary School, Saint Martin’s High School, and Durham College of Commerce in where she received a business diploma.

Sonia was a very well rounded person being the oldest girl of her siblings. She would help clean, cook, sew and support around the home. There was a time when she obtained her first summer job, she saved her money and bought Christmas gifts for her family. She would even dress up her sisters on Sunday mornings for church service. Sonia participated in many school chorals singing at special events. Throughout the years, she was still able to remember the songs she sang, and with no hesitation, she would always belt out a few of the songs.

Sonia migrated to Freeport, Grand Bahama after college and worked in the foodservice industry for many years. In 1990, Sonia relocated from Freeport to Mami, Florida, then to New Castle, Delaware and returned to Florida in 2000. She worked as a CNA, caring for private clients until her disability. Sonia was a woman of God, her faith was strong in the Lord. She loved her church and church family. She had an enchanting and strong personality that touches everyone who comes in contact with her. She loved life and lived her life to the fullest. Often times her words would be “I have done it all.” Sonia loved people and she was always the life of the party or any events that she attended. She always wanted to be seen and heard. Sonia was known for her fabulous style, wittiness, jokes, and her complimentary words. She was also very outspoken and was quick to offer sound advice to friends and family.

Even though Sonia lost her leg in 2016, it did not deter her from living a full life. Prior to her losing her leg, one of the most memorable times of her life was when she visited the Holy Land of Israel and was rebaptized in the River Jordon. Sonia kept a smile on her face, her spirit was high and always praising God with songs. She was a true believer and often talked about God has brought her through her illness and she believed that God will forever continue to bless and care for her.

Sonia is survived by seven siblings Albert Salmon(Marjorie), Derrick Salmon, Kingsley Salmon, Christine Hargrove(Shelly Jr.), Janet Salmon, Novlet Salmon and Gary Salmon (Victoria); a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, along with many other family members and long life friends.

My husband and I recently met Sonia at a birthday party. We sat and spoke with her for a while. My husband said this about Sonia, “she makes you feel like you know for a long time.” I had the same sentiment. We talked about her native Island of Jamaica and some of her experiences. I got a feel of her vibrance from her tone, inflections in her voice and body language. I am glad we had the pleasure of meeting her.
