    Notes 
    • When Sophia was 18 months old she was stricken with infantile paralysis that left her with a permanent limp, but she recognized no handicap. She attended the local school and two years boarding school at Westphalia, taught by the Notre Dame Nuns. After that she taught school for several years, and then worked for two years as a seamstress at Famous Barr Department Store in St. Louis, MO.
      When the Catholic School first opened at Morrison, MO, Sophia was the first to teach at the school - a one room, one teacher school. She was an expert seamstress, made many wedding dresses, suits, and taught girls how to sew. After teaching school for twenty-five years, she then worked as Assistant Post Mistress at Morrison, MO.
      A flag with a silver star for each service man was made by Sophia and this hung in the church during World I and II.
      She was a very talented woman who served her church, town and country well. [2]
