Memorial services for Donna Sock, 87, Alpharetta, Ga., formerly of Norfolk, will be at 11 a.m. Friday, March 15, at St. Brendan’s Catholic Church in Cumming, Ga.
Donna passed away on March 3, 2019, at Tranquility Hospice in Marietta, Ga., surrounded by her four adoring children.
Donna was born on Oct. 13, 1931, in Lindsay to Bill and Mary Bierman. In 1953, she married Gene Sock, and they resided in Columbus before moving to Norfolk in 1957.
Donna and Gene raised their four children with love and compassion. Donna was always the number one supporter at all of her children’s activities. She was active in Norfolk Catholic Schools, Norfolk Country Club and loved working at The Style Shop.
In 1987, Gene and Donna moved to the Atlanta area, where they owned and operated furniture stores until her retirement in 2005. In Atlanta, Donna was involved with St. Brendan’s Catholic Church and Alpharetta Bridge Club.
Donna never missed an opportunity to see her grandkids play a game of football, soccer, golf, tennis or her favorite cheerleaders. She loved her children and grandchildren unconditionally.
Donna will be remembered for her kindness, her love of life, her love for a great card game and most importantly, a family dinner.
Donna was preceded in death by her spouse, Gene Sock, and her parents, Bill and Mary Bierman. She is survived by her children, Ron and Sallie Sock of High Point, N.C., Larry and Pam Sock of Lincoln, Randy Sock of Roswell, Ga., and Cheryl and Jim Brackett of Alpharetta. Donna had a huge impact on her surviving grandchildren and one great-grandchild, Taylor, Alexander and Colgan Harris, Grant and Megan Sock, Bailey and August James, Tyler and Kelsey Brackett, Garrett and Erin Sock, Conner Sock, Eric Sock and Jack Sock. She also is survived by Marilyn (Cliff) Shotkoski.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to the family for a future charity.
