Sonja Lain passed away on Sunday, November 10, 2019 in Cleburne. She was born on June 02, 1943 to Billy Fern and Iva Christene (Hankins) Harvey in Cleburne. She was a 1961 graduate of Cleburne High School and in 1962 attended Airline Stewardess School in Dallas. From 1963-1965 she worked at 1st National Bank in Fort Worth. She married Tommie L. Lain on April 17, 1964 in Cleburne.

She worked over 10 years as a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). Sonja thoroughly enjoyed the new Corvette, Cadillac Convertible, new Lincolns and new sports cars she purchased with the fruits of her labor.
She was a beautiful, smart and capable woman, retiring in 2004 due to health reasons and was of the Presbyterian faith.
