Mary Linnea (Landstedt) Vornkahl went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 11, 2020. Born June 21, 1933 in Bakerstown, PA, a small town farm girl, she met the love of her life in 1952 on a blind date at Camp Gordon in Georgia while visiting her brother. It was love at first sight, she was the devoted wife of William F. Vornkahl, III for over 65 years and selfless mother of WIlliam and Diane Vornkahl of Oxford, Susan and Rick Meineke of Ansonia, Ed Vornkahl of Westport and Diane and Joe Malone of Wallingford. She is also survived by her loving grandchildren Allison, Kelly, Billy, Jennifer, Karalyn, Brian and Jamie and her sister, Marlene Kroll of Bakerstown, PA. A long time Westport resident, Linnea worked for many years for the Town of Westport, Registrar of Voters Office retiring in 2011. Linnea and Bill traveled to all 50 states visiting many National Parks and taking in numerous parades along the way. Her family has many fond memories of their summer trips to PA and beyond. She enjoyed watching the wildlife that would come into her yard and was known for her potato salad. Linnea loved her family and was happiest having everyone together. She was loved by all and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
Her family will receive friends and family from 9:30 am to 11:15 am Saturday, January 18, 2020 at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 41 Easton Road, Westport, with a service immediately following, at 11:30 am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Paul Lutheran Church Capital Fund.

We, the Finnish relatives of Linnea, send our condolences to the family.
Linnea was a warm person, and we will never forget how she welcomed us all into her family and home, when we visited Connecticut.
We will think of you all on Saturday.
Georg Uppman, Krister Uppman and family, Kenneth Uppman and family.
