October 27, 1949 - January 20, 2016
Terry Charles Solberg, age 66 of Menomonie, WI died Wednesday January 20,, 2016 at Mayo Health System-Eau Claire. Terry was born on October 27, 1949 in Madison Wisconsin to parents he never knew. On March 27, 1950 God lovingly placed Terry into the arms of his adoptive parents Louis and Alda (Prochnow) Solberg. Terry grew up on the Rusk Prairie but for the first couple years of his life he lived at “Wistful Vista”. This was a farm north of Colfax that Louis and Alda owned prior to moving to the Rusk Prairie. He remembered living at “Wistful Vista” literally to his dying day. Terry attended Beyer Settlement School, a one room school next to Beyer Settlement Church just east of Rusk. He then attended Menomonie High School and graduated in 1967. Terry struggled with alcohol and drugs most of his life. Those struggles took him down a path in life to some dark places that cost him dearly in his health, lost friendships and failed marriages. Some he grieved for to the day he died. Terry had a kind soul that shined through and that many saw. It is this Terry that we should try to remember. He could be very loyal and dependable and would give us his shirt if asked. It is this Terry that will be missed and it is this Terry that is now in God’s arms experiencing the unconditional love and promises of God. Terry is survived by his sister, Mary and her partner Mary Busalacchi., his aunt Irene Ovren, many cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Louis and Alda Solberg, grandparents Arthur and Lydia Prochnow and Axel and Laura Solberg, aunts and uncles and many other family and friends. “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also with me. My Father’s house has many rooms: if it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:1-3 Terry may you find peace and rest from your many struggles. Rest in peace and know that you were loved. A memorial service will be held at 6:00 p.m. Sunday, January 24, 2016 at Olson Funeral Home in Menomonie with Pastor Heather Wigdahl officiating. Visitation will be from 4:00 p.m. until the time of service.
