Sonia Balin, our beautiful mother, “Sonny” Balin (née Radbill), passed away August 6, 2014 in Bryn Mawr following a brief illness. She lived a happy life, especially with her late husband, Dr. Robert Balin. Together, they moved to Las Vegas in 1970, where they ran his medical practice for nearly three decades. Sonny graduated from Overbrook High School in 1947, followed her dream to dance under the training of both George Balanchine and jazz great Luigi in New York City, and was content just being with friends and family. Mother to Franklin, Joanne and Trudie Tollin, and stepmother to David, Abbey and Josh Balin, Sonny will live in our hearts every day, for the rest of our lives. Rest in peace, mother precious.
