Obituary for Sonja A. Chamides

Sonja A. Chamides, 83, of Stuart, FL, passed away Tuesday, May 26, 2020 in the care of Martin Memorial Hospital. She was the widow of Robert E. Chamides, who passed away July 7, 2000.

Sonja was born in Humenne, Czechoslovakia to the late Stanley and Anna B. (Balog) Vejchar.

She graduated from Central Catholic High School, Reading, in 1954 and went on to study at University of Miami and the City College of New York.

Sonja enjoyed a professional life of adventure and variety. As a young woman, she participated in broadcasts with Radio Free Europe. She served as the personal assistant to Faberge Hair Co. Vice President, Susan Rosencranz. Sonja was also personal assistant to Bill Solomon of Solomon Brothers in New York City. She worked for several years with Edler Dempster Lines, Ltd., in the World Trade Center.

She retired as an executive assistant at Palm Beach Gardens Marriott of Palm Beach, FL. Not one to be content relaxing in her retirement, she worked as a limo driver in Palm Beach. In her later years she was also “employed” by Seniors Helping Seniors from 2008 until 2013.

Though she did not have children, Sonja will be remembered by many dear friends and cousins living throughout the United States and Europe.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at her family’s convenience. Sonja will be laid to rest in Old Town Cemetery in Humenne, Slovakia.
