Sofia Maja Buxton-Anderson
Buxton-Anderson, Sofia Maja age 13, passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 17 of complications from a bacterial infection. Her family thanks the medical staffs at Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater and United Children's Hospital in St. Paul who tried so hard to save her. Sofia had an exceptional happiness of spirit and eagerness about her life. She was beautiful in every way and stood out as a glowing, loving, laughing soul. We cannot comprehend the enormity of our loss. Sofia was attending Stillwater Junior High School and was a former student at San Miguel Middle School and Whittier Elementary in Minneapolis. In deepest sadness we remain: her parents, Molly Buxton (Jason Remington), Fred and Tracy Anderson; little sisters, Isabella and Keira Anderson; her "Nana", Kathryn Buxton; grandfathers, Jackson Buxton and Fred Anderson, Sr.; great-grandparents, Belle and Vernon Buxton and Alyce Fransein; uncle Aaron, Grammy Bev, and many more relatives, friends and neighbors. Preceded in death by grandmother, Ethel Anderson. Over 350 people attended her memorial service on 12/21 at Bradshaw Funeral Home in Stillwater. One day she was our girl and the next day she was gone.
