Ursula worked in the laundry and the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center, and previous to that she was an assembly line worker at Cleveland Container. She was a parishioner of Notre Dame Church.
She was known for BBQs and weekend gatherings at her home. She loved to play cards, trivia games (everyone tried to see who could make her laugh the hardest), watching tennis, and golf, Jeopardy, the Home Shopping Network and Court TV. Ursula was young at heart, caring, had a great sense of humor, was loving and was always there to help the ones she loved any way she could, but she had a tough side if need be.
Her last few years were spent at St. Joseph’s Nursing Home where she got excellent care and became a loving fixture to the employees, (She suffered from Alzheimer’s disease).
