Solveig Haugland, 48 of Lafayette, passed away August 9, 2015 in Lafayette.








Solveig and a number of us became friends as college kids at Concordia between 1985-1989, and continued our friendships for some years. We are saddened to hear of the loss of such a bright, witty, clever, ambitious young woman who lived life in her own way, and at her own pace. Though we were separated by distance, time, and life's ills, we remember our friendship and share a toast to it and her.
Solveig was my cousin. She was the younger one, so many of us didn't get to know her very well. She and her parents would visit my mom and dad on a regular basis. Solveig was full of fun, and loved to go sledding in Wisconsin. Later, when she was "grown up" we discovered what a brilliant young woman she was. She took such loving care of her parents, loved her animals and by all accounts was a wonderful friend. The world is a sadder, less intelligent place without her. I am so thankful that she had such supportive friends during her short life. R. I. P., Solveig! Say hello to Uncle Palmer and Aunt Ethelyn.
