Sophie (Fall) Dennis was born on May 2, 1928, to Aniela (Gocek) and Elias Fall, in Vance Creek Township, Barron County, Wis.

She attended Jones Creek School through eighth grade and graduated from Clayton High School. She worked at the Bank of Clayton prior to marrying George Dennis on Oct. 31, 1953, at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in rural Clayton, where she and George were lifetime members. Sophie and George raised five daughters on their dairy farm near Reeve. She was active in the church choir, Mother’s Club, and Sunday School as well as being a 4-H leader. She enjoyed singing in the church choir, quilting, gardening, dancing, and antiques. They retired from full-time farming in 1985, remained on the farm, and traveled extensively. She continued to live on the farm after George passed away in 2011. Her faith remained strong. The last two years of her life she resided in Golden Age Manor, Amery, Wis., until her death on Sunday, May 24, 2020, at the age of 92. She was preceded in death by her parents, beloved spouse George, brother Clement Fall, and sister-in-law Maryann (Krecker) Fall.
