Karna F. Wildt

Karna F. Wildt, age 91, of Kendal at Longwood, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 29, 2022. She was born in 1930 in Bergen, Norway.

Following the end of World War II she completed her high school and college education in Norway, earning her physical therapy license when she was not competing in speed skating or riding around on her Vespa motor scooter.

In 1958, she emigrated to Wilmington, Delaware to live with her sister’s family and begin her career as a contract physical therapist, providing geriatric rehabilitation at assisted living facilities and private homes in northern Delaware.

She loved international travel, skiing, hiking, Longwood Gardens, making flower arrangements, and spending time with her friends. A member of Christ Church in Greenville, she is survived by her children, Laurette and Erik, and grandchildren Nate, Lauren, and Martin.

Her family suggests memorial contributions in Karna’s memory. Payments can be made out to Kendal-Crosslands Communities and sent to Rayna Gray, Kendal-Crosslands Communities, P.O.Box 100, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
