Sondra Darlene "Soni" Sheehan

Sondra Darlene "Soni" Sheehan, 83, of Noblesville, passed away on Friday, December 22, 2023 surrounded by her husband and family.  Soni was born on August 27, 1940 to Charles and Mary (Ashcraft) Miller in Celina, Ohio. 

In 1984, Soni married Thomas P. Sheehan, who forever referred to her as his “bride”.  Together they created the Thomas P. and Sondra D. Sheehan Charitable Foundation dedicated to improving the lives of children facing debilitating medical challenges and the Timothy J. Sheehan Memorial Endowment Fund supporting various charitable organizations locally and throughout the United States. 

Her primary love was building a life with her husband, caring for her family, and volunteering.  Soni enjoyed playing cards (winning), traveling, attending theatrical productions, gardening, reading, and learning to play the piano.  She was active with the Tom and Soni Sheehan Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville where she was honored as the 1997 Volunteer of the Year.  For nearly 30 years, her passion was to participate in the annual UpTop Shop Christmas event.  She also volunteered at St. Vincent De Paul Society in Noblesville and taught reading at a Charter School in Immokalee, FL where the students fondly referred to her as Grandma. 

Soni was a member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Noblesville, IN.  She was forever mindful of others and loved doing small acts of kindness that were personal and heartfelt.  Her quiet perceptive nature came with a finely tuned awareness for seeing people and their needs. 

Soni is survived by her husband, Thomas P. Sheehan; children, Gary P. (Sheila) Sheehan, Tracey L. Sheehan (partner Pam Olerich), Eric M. Sheehan, Kenton L. Luedeke, and Todd W. (Cathy) Luedeke; grandchildren, Madison, Scott, Dylan (Hillary) Michelle (Brad), Jefa, Jaylee, and Liam; and her great-grandchildren, Paris, Astrid, Brentley and Abigail.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her infant son, Scott Luedeke; sons, Kevin W. (Thomasina "Janie") Sheehan and Timothy J. Sheehan; brother, Charles "Skip" Miller; and her first husband, Virgil "Bud" Luedeke.
