Tri-County Pro-Life Latina Volunteer Killed in Car Crash

An email from Joe Edwards,

Dear Fred and friends,

It is with great sadness that I write and report the tragic loss of Sonia Hume, a visionary Hispanic Christian who saw the need for an Hispanic voice

In her time at Tri County, Sonia facilitated the translation of pro life materials into Spanish and created a Tuesday evening ministry to the Hispanic community proclaiming the love of Christ, Bible study and worship, all with an unapologetic pro life posture.

Sonia was the women recently reported in the news as having been tragically killed when a passing vehicle hit her head on in Woodstock just the other day, just after dropping off her child at daycare.

Her eternal rest is assured with her sound faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, yet her 5 year old son is now motherless.


Needless to say, the needs here are many.

Please keep this dear child in your prayers and should the Lord move you to other forms of giving, to reach out to Tracy Johanson, Center Director of Tri County. You may easily reach her by calling Tri County at 815-455-0965 or email her at

Below please find details surrounding Sonia’s life celebration in Capron, IL this Wednesday. It would be such a joy to see the pro life community rally behind this faithful servant who so selflessly gave, that others might live.

Please forward this to all fellow pro life friends and ministries and let’s love on this family in their time of need, “…for when you do this to the least of these, you do it unto Me” says the Lord.

For Christ and His Kingdom,

Joe Edwards

I asked Tracy to jot down a few words about Sonia’s service and here’s what she wrote:

I took the job as the Director of the Crystal Lake center at Tri County Pregnancy and Parenting Services just a year ago and Sonia at that time was a volunteer.

Sonia Hume

We talked about her desire to see more of the Hispanic population coming to our center to help them with their pregnancies.We decided to make our Tuesday evenings Hispanic night. Sonia invited Celia, Carmen and Hosa from her church “Church of the Apostolic Road” located in Capron IL to help her.

Each Tuesday from 4 until 9 o’clock they teach woman about child birth and parenting along with having a bible study.

It has now grown to all day Tuesday we have someone who speaks Spanish.

Sonia was instrumental in getting her church and St Mary’s Church in Huntley to donate money to purchase our pregnancy material in Spanish. We received them about a month ago.

Our hearts are torn in letting her go to a far better place with the Lord, but to miss her gentle nature and her zeal for helping people.

We at Tri County Pregnancy have decided to continue our Tuesday programs in Spanish and dedicate it to Sonia.
