We remember with an abundance of joy and deep sorrow the well-lived life of Karin(K5) M. Haaland Weyand. She passed peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

Karin was born on Staten Island, March 5, 1967, daughter of Nora (Kallestein) Haaland of Port Ewen and the late Elias Sandhaaland both of who immigrated from Norway.

Karin grew up in Willow NY, graduated Onteora High School where she was an exceptional student-athlete outpacing her four older brothers in both. Her school record for the 400M hurdles still stands today, and her keen volleyball skills will always be remembered. Karin earned a bachelors degree from SUNY Albany and was self-employed as a freelance graphic designer in the Hudson Valley serving local musicians and businesses.

It was Karin and Peter’s shared love of music and art that brought them together and they married July 7, 2001. The year after their marriage, they purchased Reflections Photography and photographed horse shows together until this past summer. Karin loved to be in nature, whether it was hiking, cycling, skiing, swimming or just out for a walk. Karin was an adored, loving wife to Peter and loving mother to their two children. Karin was effortless in her love and always had a smile, kind word, and a twinkle in her eye. Those who knew her will never forget her infectious laughter, wit, and optimism.

Karin is survived by her mother, Nora, her Husband Peter Weyand their children Melia and Grace, her four brothers John(Ann), Robert(Jann), Gordon(Maressa), and Kenneth(Jen), and nieces/nephews Britt/Tom, Alyssa/Jason, Jessie/Mark, GJ/Jolie, Cody, Andrew, Megan, Sam, Sean, Dillon, and finally grandniece MJ. Karin is also survived by a large extended family both here in the States and Norway as well as many cherished friends, many of which date back to childhood.

A celebratory memorial service will be held on March 30, 2019, 11 am at St. James United Methodist Church, 35 Pearl Street, Kingston NY 12401

In lieu of flowers, please plant some flowers (black eyed susans were a favorite) or a tree in Karin’s memory. Peter is exploring the start of a foundation in Karin’s name.

To me it is surreal to write theese words about you, Karin.

The first time I met you, I was just a tiny little girl. I have seen photographs from it, and by the photos it seems like you took care of me. I vaguely remember the meeting we had, but the way everybody talked about you in our family, it felt like I knew you so well. All the stories from Malena and my mum, of how you were living your life and the memories we all shared about the meetings the family had througout the years. Living so far away from eachother, yet you still felt so close to me.

It was not until the summer of 2001, that I got to meet up properly with you. I was so lucky to come over to spend some good time with you and the rest of the family. I remember tante Nora telling me one time she came over to visit in Norway, that I reminded her of you. Not just in looks, but also interests and the lifestyle we both chose. It was like meeting a sister.

You had such a spirit, making everyone feel comfortable around you, smiling and laughing. And Pete, such a lucky man getting married to you at Cape Cod. I remember the wedding preparations. How you added flowers that you picked to your wedding bouquet, finding what came across. It was so beautiful. And onkel Elias, he was such a proud dad walking you down the aisle, out at the light house. Thank you for letting me be a part of this beautiful day in your life.

I have no words for the pain everyone in your family must feel from loosing you. Tante Nora and all your brothers ♥ There was only one Tante, and I could see how the eyes from nieses and nephews lightened up in excitement when they talked about you.

Unfortunately we never got to meet as mothers. I have not met your wonderful girls yet, but I hopefully will this summer. What a loss for Melia, Grace and Pete. My thoughts and prayers are especially for them ♥

I cannot believe that you are not going to be here anymore Karin. Cousins living in different countries fare from each other and still I always felt close to you.
My first memories of you was my mormor and morfars pictures of you and your brothers on their walls. I remember they where so proud of you guys and so happy for the little girl tante Nora and uncle Elias had gotten. I followed you through those pictures on the wall in many years. The first time I met you in person was when you came to Norway for the first time. I was 10 yr and you where 6 yrs. Full of life, a happy and smiling little girl, a though little girl growing up with 4 older brothers that adored you. The next time I got to meet you was when Snefrid and I came over on summer to visit. I remember a happy and very athletic young girl. Always with a smile and a laughter surrounding you. I admired how you could do the flic flack so easily and how you where swimming like a fish in the water ... you where more under then above the surface. One year later I was happy to stay for a year in the US as an exchange student. Living in NJ I was close enough to come an visit you and that year I got to know you even better. I came up for your confirmation and I saw you as the most beautiful bride made in the wedding of Ann and John. Sparkling as the most beautiful diamond and so full of live. I saw you becoming a tante for the first time.... so proud❤️After that we met up several times, you visiting Norway and me visiting the US. Many years went by each time but still I felt close to you. I got to meet you as a mother to those beautiful girls of Peter and you. The last time I met up with you was 4 years ago and you took Terje and me on this beautiful hike together with Melia and Grace. Then we heard you had gotten sick. We where so optimistic that this would go the right way and I kept close contact with tante Nora so she could keep me updated. A few weeks ago i got this horrible message that your life was ending. I got so mad and soooo sad. Why this.., ??? thats the question I ask myself over and over again. You will always stay close Karin because you have this special place in my heart. I will always love your beautiful girls. They and Peter will always be welcomed to my home in Norway. My thoughts goes especially to the girls and to Peter, but also to tante Nora, your brothers and their family and all the other family and friends I see have put you close to their heart. You where also the only tante to a lot of kids that loved you enormously and who will miss you a lifetime. Karin you have put your mark and your love in so many hearts. You will be so missed. My thoughts and prayers goes to Peter, Melia and Grace. I pray that they will be given the strength needed. Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again❤️ Mona
