Sonya Ann Musgrove (43) of Gilbert Arizona passed away peacefully on March 13th after only a 17-day battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer.
Sonya was born on Jun 5th, 1978, to Werner Kaiser and the late Carol Eldred in St. Joseph, MI. Sonya attended St. Joseph High School (class of 1996) and later earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Phoenix.
Shortly after graduating High School Sonya met her husband, Billy “Shane” Musgrove and they were married on March 1st, 2000. Shane and Sonya went on to have 3 children, Jazmine (21), Cayden (18) and Maliyah “Lyla” (16) that were the center of her world!
Sonya lived for her family! She never missed a volleyball game, baseball game, cheerleading competition, school event or any other activity. Sonya loved family game nights, going to the movies, family vacations, horseback riding and of course shopping. If it involved her family, she loved it!
Sonya was also described as being giving, selfless, charitable, an inspiration and a hero by all of those that have known her. She has touched countless lives and would help anyone that needed a hand. From being a surrogate mother, to sponsoring student athletes, or opening her home to people in need, she was always there to support others.
Sonya was preceded in death by her mother, Carol Eldred. She is survived by her husband Shane, daughters Jazmine and Maliyah “Lyla” Musgrove, son Cayden Musgrove, father Werner “Papa” Kaiser, Sisters Krystal Lockman, Amber Eldred, Cindy and Michelle Kaiser, and several nephews and nieces.
