In Memoriam: Randi Veie Rosvoll, M.D

RANDI VEIE ROSVOLL, M.D. ’57, died Aug. 19, 2012 at her home in Atlanta, Ga.

Born in Trondheim, Norway in 1928, she and her parents, Margit b. Næss and Alv Veie Rosvoll, and brothers Bjørn, Tor, and Odd lived through WWII and the postwar era.

She completed her bachelor’s degree at American University with distinction, earned her M.D. at GW’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and went on to specialize in pathology.

Following her residency and internship, she was hired by Emory University in 1963 as a pathologist at Grady Memorial Hospital. She worked the remainder of her career for the Clinical Laboratories at Emory University Hospital.

She is survived by her brother, Odd Veie Rosvoll, and 19 nieces and nephews.
