Sonya died after experiencing complications from a non-emergency surgery. She went in for a pre-scheduled surgery on December 9th and was released two days later.

She was placed on life support and then died later that night.

Of course, many General Hospital fans have shared their best memories and condolences to Sonya’s family on social media. Drew Cheetwood wrote, “Sonya was the first castmate I saw in the studio that day and I’ll never forget our genuine excitement to see each other. We talked about our scenes together for that week a bit but mostly we just caught up and had a laugh with one another. She was very easy to do that with. She had a light and comedic tone about her that made you eager for what she was going to say next. Truly, never a dull moment.”

Marc Anthony Samuel said, “There were so many reasons to love you, Sonya. Your laugh was infectious, your sense of humor, on point. Your professionalism, even while in physical pain, was amazing to me. Your humility and gratitude are something that I will never forget. But mostly I love you because you were my friend. I’m still in shock, but grateful I got to see you the other day. I know that you’ve missed your dad, so I like to think that you and he are catching up. Love you, Ma.”
