After 67 years of an eventful, courageous, community serving life, The Lord called home our mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend, Ms. Luvenia Sofer.
Luvenia left this existence on January 16, 2021 to join her mother Florie E. Daniels, brother Raymond Daniels Jr. And her sister Theresa Daniels in Glory. February 19, 1953 in Columbia, SC at Columbia Hospital a princess was born by the name of Luvenia Daniels from the Queen Mrs. Florie E. Daniels. Luvenia was the first of 7 children, 3 boys and 4 girls. Luvenia attended CA Johnson High School while living with her mom on Stark Street in the community of Valley Park.
Luvenia was an excellent student that excelled in all of her classes and courses and graduated at the top of her class. Queen Luvenia’s passion for education lead her back to the public school system at W.A. Perry to pursue a career and not just a job as an Administrative Assistant.
Queen Luvenia had hidden artistic skill sets as a child such as playing the piano, expression of her life through her Art, Jewelry Making, Fashion and Design. Some would say a high level of Clairvoyance as well. Queen Luvenia found love with a Cincinnati native by the name of Charles Jones who was a Army military man based in South Carolina. To their union Prince Torrance Jones was born. Unfortunately, Charles Jones was killed early in their relationship and Queen Luvenia wept for him as Jesus once did. Later on in Luvenia’s life as a single lonely mother, she met a man by the name of Greg Sofer and inevitably they were married. From the union young Prince Bryant Sofer was born with his big head.
Queen Luvenia and Greg parted ways not long after the birth of Bryant, which left Queen Luvenia once again in a strange land with two children. Queen Luvenia went on to pursue her purpose and passion in education at Taft and Herberle High Schools as an Administrative Assistant. She was able to pursue her career for several years before having to retire for personal health reasons.
Passion is one characteristic that cannot be held back like the light, it’s going to rise no matter what. Queen Luvenia found another way to assist and touch her people later on in life by being elected as the President of the Beechwood Resident Council along with her partner and confidant Ms. Nancy Brown. One of Queen Luvenia’s motto’s is “You have what you need, now work with it.”
Queen Luvenia was an Introvert that dealt with the valleys that life took her through internally and vehemently. Queen Luvenia was a Personally Empowered woman that just wanted to be loved for who she was whole heartedly dispite her flaws as we all do. Torrance Jones and Bryant Sofer are the direct Prince descendants of Queen Luvenia Sofer. Our job, duty, and responsibility is to make sure that 50 to 100 years from now her bloodline will be able to say and know her name. Luvenia Sofer’s light will shine throughout the decades. Imma take her home my way, say a prayer to Jesus, Jehovah, Yahweh!
Queen Luvenia’s Legacy will be left in great hands to her siblings: Larry Daniels, Diane Daniels, Perry Daniels Sr., Betty Denise Daniels; 7 grandchildren, Jamarria T. Jones, Jamar Jones Sr. (preceded in death), Bryant Sofer Jr., Myevan Isiah Brice, Lyla Ann White, Kelcie Nicole Pugh and Brooklynn Cha Pugh ; 4 great-grandchildren; Dominique Torrance Jones, Javon Seymour, Lamonte Adams, Jamar Jones Jr.; 3 daughter in laws; Sophia Jones, Leslie Phinazee, Adrienne Elease Sharpe, Aunt Caroline Brice, Special Friend, Wilhelmenia Shell and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
