Sondra Rose

November 10, 1937 — October 3, 2023

Sondra “Bunny” (Wilk) Rose departed this world on October 3, 2023. She lived a life of loving devotion and care stretching across three generations. Sondra was born in Houston, Texas, to Louis and Henrietta (Segal) Wilk. As a young child in the wake of World War II, the family moved to Lubbock, Texas. There, Sondra attended Lubbock High School and married soon after graduation. Sondra held many impactful roles during her lifetime - daughter, wife, mother, spending her life making a home, and caring for her family and friends; in her young life, she owned and operated a beauty shop, and also worked for her father at Wilk Iron & Metal. She later became a real estate agent, and then moved with her family throughout the country, but ultimately, came back again to Houston - to Sugarland, where she lived for over 36 years, nurturing friendships, and the lives of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Sondra was a member of ORT America and Hadassah, and she enjoyed book club and Torah study. She is survived by her brother, Michael S. Wilk and sister-in-law, Carol Wilk, of Houston, and children, David I. Wilk and partner Edward Richards, Samuel Wilk, Debra Levy-Fritts and son-in-law, Jeffrey A. Fritts. Bunny’s light and  presence will be deeply missed by everyone who loved her, including her grandchildren, Peri Federow and partner Ariel Follbaum, Libbi and husband, Joe O’Dean, and her son-in-law, Rabbi Stuart Federow, as well as grandchildren Louis Fritts and Hannah Fritts, and two great-grandchildren. Bunny will also be remembered by an extended family of nieces and nephews, cousins and lifelong friends.
Bunny was predeceased by James M. Rose, her husband, and beloved daughter, Lisa Ann Federow. May the memory of Sondra be a blessing.
