Warren George Sommerfeld

Warren George Sommerfeld, 90, was born and raised on a farm-ranch in eastern Montana. His parents, George and Bernice, had five children, Warren being the first born.

Warren graduated from Wibaux, Montana High School and was later hired by Great Northern Railroad as a Telegraph Operator. He eventually moved his family to Seattle, Washington and was hired by Boeing and worked there 30+ years as a Machinist Supervisor. After retirement Warren and his wife, Donna, bought a fifth wheel and in 1964 traveled to Arizona and decided Sunland Village East would be their home.

Warren was a proud and honored 52 year member of the F. & A.M. Masonic Order. His passions were cruising, traveling, and photography. He took many photos, several of which are being used in the S.V.E. community. He joined the S.V.E. computer and camera clubs and was very active in the Village Chapel. Warren was a very friendly, outgoing, affectionate, loving husband and a true gentleman.

Warren loved to converse with friends, relatives, and neighbors (he never knew a stranger), especially if they talked about photography, computers, and traveling or airplanes, trains, and cars.

Warren was preceded in death by his parents, George and Bernice Sommerfeld; sister, Lois Herigstad; brother, Robert Sommerfeld; a son, Brian Sommerfeld; and his previous wife, Donna Dillon Sommerfeld.

He is survived by his wife, Mickey Williamson Sommerfeld; two sisters, Janice (Duane) O’Donnell and Marijean Nunberg; a sister-in-law, Marguerite Sommerfeld; a daughter, Carla (Maury) Dixon; a step-son, Pat (Sue) Dillon; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Warren can reflect on his life from above and say, “It is well with my soul.”

  1. Our deepest sympathy to you, Larry and Ron, and your families at your mother’s passing. We truly loved Peg and enjoyed knowing getting to know her when we moved to our place on Humphrey Bogart. I always thought of her as the matriarch of the street as, I believe, she was its longest resident. She was a feisty lady, always with a ready smile, and a twinkle in her eye. We will truly miss her and her tales of “having her fingerprints” on the B52’s and other planes, skiing down the mountain at Crested Butte, and I so wish I knew her when she was a member of the Comedy Club in the park. Her love for Native American culture was evident in her jewelry, the dolls and needlework that I believe she made (talented lady), and had in her home. When one meets a person in their later years, you may never know the person they once were. I’m glad Peg shared so much of her early days with us. May she rest in peace.
