Sofhie married Tom Gilks of Simcoe, Ontario on February 24, 1962 at the Shippelt family farm. They lived in various places both in Ontario and Alberta before purchasing their farm east of Innisfail in 1968. They lived there until retiring to Innisfail in 1994.

The family would like to thank Dr. Miller, the nurses and all the staff and residents that helped to make Rosefield Sofhie’s home for the last 5 years.
