Dolores Sons, age 84, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 26, 2022, at her home in Hessmer. She married her husband, Julian “Sonny” Sons in 1965 and moved to Avoyelles Parish in 1979. Dolores worked for and retired from Cleco. After finishing her work life, she enjoyed sewing and many types of crafts. If you were a friend or family member, chances are you were lucky enough to enjoy homemade gifts made from love or maybe a jar or two of jelly or preserves. Dolores also was a member of the Altar Society, quilting at the Council on Aging, and Crafting Club. She also loved pokeno and gardening.

Those left to cherish her memory are her 5 children: Frances Sons Rentrop (Kurt), Juliana Sons Synder, Jeffery Mark Sons (Francine), Justin Michael Sons (Donna), Kim Naquin; sister, Barbara Vinning, brother, Melvin Vinning. She is also survived by 8 grandchildren: Cody Thompson (Tabitha), Jason Thompson (Aliseha), Caleb Sons, Telizia Rentrop, Martin Sons (Danielle), Dustin Sons (Crystal), Harley Snyder, and Lance O’Nishea; 4 great-grandchildren, Arabella Manuel, Lillian Sons, Enola Sons, and Vayda Sons.

Those honored to serve pallbearers: Cody Thompson, Jason Thompson, Caleb Sons, Martin Sons, Dustin Sons, Harley Snyder, & Telizia Rentrop.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, Julian “Sonny” Sons, Jr.; parents, Clarence & LouElla Vinning; her birth mother, Frances Pennison Vinning; and son-in-law, Phillip “Phil” Synder; sisters, Sylvia Stansbury (Larry), Jeaneze Frentz (Gary), Ruby Crappell (Roland); brothers, Clarence Vinning, Jr. and Francis “Rileaux” Vinning (Lindy).
