Boulger Funeral Home

Sonja Kjar is serving at Boulger’s as one of the Grief Support Coordinators. Sonja graduated from high school in Bloomington, MN. In 1986 she graduated from Luther College, Decorah, IA and later from Luther Seminary, St. Paul, MN. She is an ordained Lutheran (ELCA) pastor (since 1996) and is board certified (since 2006) through the Association of Professional Chaplains. She has served in congregations and hospitals in Eastern North Dakota since 1996.

Sonja lives in Kindred with her husband Brad, and their three children: Annika, Anders and Kai.

One of Sonja’s favorite quotes is, ” A child old enough to love is old enough to mourn.” (Alan Wolfelt)

Because grief and loss are realities in life, she appreciates being able to walk with people, even if only for a time, as they live with life’s losses.
