Cordilla was born in St. Clair on July 17, 1931, daughter of Fred William Sohn and Nancy Wilhemina Sohn nee Smith.

Cordilla was a Christian, believing in the Lord as her Savior.

She was also employed as a cook for Sunset Healthcare Center in Union, MO for ten years. Cordilla had a variety of interests throughout her life including going fishing, bowling and sewing. She also loved playing bingo and going to the casino. What meant most to her though was time spent with her family. Her children and grandchildren held a special place in her heart, as she did in theirs. The love they shared and many precious memories they created will forever live in their hearts.

A kind and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great and great-great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and treasured friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
