Ingrid M. Saller (nee Wangdahl), age 94, of Trumbull, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 12, 2019 at her home with her four children at her side. She was the beloved wife of 53 years of the late Erik Saller. Born in Lidköping, Sweden, she was the daughter of the late Alexander and Selma Andersson Wangdahl. She and Erik immigrated to the USA in 1947, initially settling in Charleston, WV. Ultimately they became longtime residents of Stamford and in retirement, moved to Guilford and Old Lyme before Ingrid moved to Wallingford, then Trumbull.
In addition to being a wonderful wife and mother, Ingrid was an accomplished cook, generous hostess and amazing seamstress, making many of her own and her children's clothes. She read voraciously and loved playing Bridge. She volunteered driving cancer patients to appointments. She and Erik travelled extensively especially in their later years. One of her proudest achievements was becoming an American citizen. She avidly followed politics and diligently exercised her right to vote.
