Sonia George dies… children being cared for by relatives

Four years after two of her children died horrifically during a fire at the state-owned Drop-in-Centre on Hadfield Street, Sonia George has also died and now her remaining children are in the care of her relatives.

Joshua and Anthony were three and six years old, respectively, when they died on July 8, 2016. George was in a battle with the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) for the return of her three other children who remained in state custody.

They were eventually returned to her care and at the time of her death on June 30, 2020 she was the mother of five, the last two being twins, a boy and a girl. George was 41 years old at the time of her death.
