In 1966 they decided to follow their dream and bought a farm and moved their family to the United States, settling in the Neillsville area. Sophie loved her life here and enjoyed the hard work on the farm. She also loved to cook and garden, but her main love in life was taking care of her family and being a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
