I worked with Ursula at SVH, she was very kind to me. She was a tough teacher, but she cared that the work was done right. I am sorry for your loss.

Ever since I moved to the neighborhood in Ambridge, Pennsylvania USA, where Ursula was my neighbor, she was always so helpful, kind and cheerful. She will be missed!
