Linnea Myers Death, Obituary – Now, with a heaved sigh and deep sorrow, we can only inform you of the passing of our good companions. On December 13, 2022, Linnea Victoria Myers Fahrnkopf passed dead suddenly at her childhood home in Helena, Montana, from unidentified circumstances. In recent weeks, it has been challenging and discouraging to get through Christmas and the New Year after learning. Linnea was a wonderful mother to two darling children as well as a wonderful daughter, sister, and friend to many.
She loved producing films and pictures. She adored creating things, singing, and music. Even though she was dancing recklessly in the midst of our chaotic culture, she had a free spirit and a nice heart. She didn’t want to spend much time outside, but she enjoyed to photograph the scenery and environment because she loved animals and traveling. She carried her camera with her almost wherever she went. Next to her kids, it was her greatest source of pride and delight.
She was vivacious and humorous in a dry way. Any room would be brightened by her grin. She was born and raised in Bremerton and Port Orchard, Washington, before relocating to Helena, Montana, in 1999 with her mother and brother. She graduated in 2002 with a diploma from Helena’s Capital High School. She later went on to graduate from the University of Montana in 2006 with honors in psychology. When we first met Linnea in junior high, we clicked immediately away.
Over the years, we also came to feel like family to one another. She was both my sister and our closest friend, and we will sincerely miss her. On Saturday, January 14 at 6:00 p.m. in downtown Port Orchard’s Waterfront Park, the “Grandstand” covered seating area, a candlelight vigil is scheduled (reservations pending, it may get pushed out until later this month depending). Soon, a Facebook event will be established. Anyone who knows Linnea is welcome to attend and attendance is highly encouraged.
If you would want to make arrangements to assist Linnea’s family with memorial and other unexpected costs, kindly direct mail me. If not, a donation jar will be available at the vigil. Listen to Linnea’s rendition of Alanis Morrisette’s song “Uninvited” from a few years back to hear how lovely her voice is.
