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.
Services will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7361 S. Constellation Way, Gilbert, AZ 85296 on March 26th at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you take your family to dinner or a baseball game in honor of Sonya’s memory!

Sonya was a star who shined brightly in every life she touched. That light will never fade! Please accept my prayers and condolence.
Shocked to hear of Sonya’s passing, she was much too young. our condolences to her family.
We enjoyed her at the baseball games that we attended to cheer Hayden Jacobsen, our grandson, and the rest of the team to
victory. Enjoy the good memories.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Musgrove family. Even though we didn’t know each other more than meeting online when our daughters were infants, you always were a shining light. May you Rest In Peace. Praying your family finds comfort during this difficult time.
My condolences to my second family
Musgrove Family – We are sending our love and prayers to your sweet family during this difficult time
Shane, Jasmine, Cayden, and Lyla, my heart hurts for all of you Sonya was such an amazing soul. I have known her all her life and she could light up a room. All of you were her top priority and she cherished every second being a Wife and Mother. Love to all of you!!❤🙏🙏
We send sincere condolences for this incredible loss. Sonya was a high school friend- she always had a smile and a joke. Praying for your family ❤️❤️
I will miss you my friend!!
Will you tell her something for me! I would give anything to have one more ride in the Jeep with the boombox up to the college to see all the boys, another day of climbing through the sunroof because you locked the keys in the car at the beach again! Another day of running around the house making jokes about wire hangers and working at the jewelry store together!!
My deepest condolences to the Musgrove family. I just learned about Sonya’s passing and it brought me to tears. Now I know why she never texted me back. Sonya was a very kind person and had a big heart. A very giving person. I’m so sorry we never got a chance to meet up for lunch. Rest in peace my friend! 💕🙏🏽
