Obituary for Sophronia M. "Sophie" David (Carper)

Sophronia M. “Sophie” David, 100, of Altoona, went to be with the Lord, Sunday evening, October 9, 2022.
She was born December 28, 1921 in Sinking Valley, a daughter of the late Samuel and Mary (Harpster) Carper.
She married George Edward David, and he preceded her in death in 1999.
Surviving are a daughter, Carol Mattern; two granddaughters, Beverly and Cherie Anderson; 3 great grandchildren; Jacinda and Donald Graham, and Alicia Menifee; a sister, Alberta Huff ; and a multitude of nieces and nephews, including special nephew, Butch and niece, Freda.
She was preceded in death by eight siblings, Norman, Arthur, Percy, Wilson, Earl, Howard, Geraldine and Arietta; and a great-great grandson, Derrick Menifee.
Sophie was a 1941 graduate of Warriors Mark-Franklin School and worked for John R. Wald Company during World War II. An avid bowler, she enjoyed the sport into her early 90’s. She was a diehard Pittsburgh Pirates fan who never missed watching a game and was always hopeful for another World Series win. Crocheting was her passion, always making a “special afghan” for every new member of the family.
Sophie enjoyed spending time with family and friends during the holidays. She never missed a special occasion, always letting you know that she cared and loved you.
To honor Sophie’s wishes, there will be no viewing, visitation or funeral service.
Interment will be at Burket Cemetery, Warriors Mark.
