Sonja Elizabeth Faulkner Melancon, of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, passed away on October 17, 2021 at the age of 81 at her most recent residence, Park Provence in Slidell, Louisiana. She was born February 23, 1940 in New Orleans, Louisiana to the late Thomas Raymond Faulkner and the late Ora Lee Heidmann Faulkner. Sonja is the beloved wife of 61 years to George Henry Melancon Jr.; cherished mother of George Henry Melancon III (Shelda) and Cindy Ann Melancon; proud grandmother of James Purnell Melancon (Linda), Brandon George Melancon, and Austin James Melancon (Kilee); proud great-grandmother of Saxon Joy Melancon, Luke James Melancon, and soon-to-be Bailey Jane Melancon; and caring sister of Thomas Faulkner (Gail) and Karen Faulkner. She leaves behind numerous beloved nieces, nephews, cousins along with precious in-laws.

Sonja graduated from St. Joseph High School. She enjoyed nothing more than spending time with family and friends, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Sonja loved the water, fishing, yard work, reading, porcelain dolls, and her figurines. She will be greatly missed.
