Obituary for Solveig Christiansen

Solveig Christiansen
BEACON – Solveig Christiansen, a longtime Beacon resident, died on Monday, January 1, 2018 at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie. She was 85.
Daughter of the late Harold and Agnes (Andersen) Huse, she was born in Bergen, Norway on May 12, 1932. For many years, Solveig worked aboard ships and assisted with passenger services. It was during this time that she met her co-worker and future husband, Magnus Stanley Christiansen. Through their employment, they traveled across the globe. During one stop-over in the United States, they were married in Brooklyn, NY.
In 1957, Solveig emigrated from Norway to the U.S. and settled in Beacon, where she and Stanley raised their family. She worked for many years as a seamstress for Beacon Looms. She was a dedicated member of the Fishkill Baptist Church who volunteered and participated in many of the church’s community outreach programs. Solveig was a selfless person who was always concerned about the welfare of others, and never hesitated to help those in need.
She was predeceased by her husband, Stanley in 1992.
Survivors include her son, Sven Christiansen of Fishkill; her daughter, Linda Brown & her husband Donnie of Kingston; her granddaughter, Melissa LLauger; and great-granddaughters, Kassandra & Brooke. She is also survived by her sister Sigfried and aunt Elvina, both in Norway.
In addition to her husband and parents, Solveig was also predeceased by her brother, Kurt.
Calling hours will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, January 5 at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 6, with Rev. Howard Lawler officiating. Burial will follow at Fishkill Rural Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Fishkill Baptist Church, 107 Route 82, Fishkill, NY 12524.
