Ursula von Waldow
Ursula Maria v. Waldow (nee v. Rudno), age 97 of Cambridge-Narrows, passed away with family at her side on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
Ursula is predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Achatz v. Waldow. She is survived by her children Gabriele Bentley (Alan) of Charlottetown, PEI; Joaquin (Ines Hernandez) of Moncton, NB; Ines (Doug Richardson) of Cambridge-Narrows, NB; stepdaughter Marietta (Franz Godsam) of Boehringen, Germany; and stepson Joerg (Jane) of Corn Hill, NB. She will be lovingly missed by 14 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
Our mother was born in Starkow, Germany on January 25, 1922. She lived in a number of locations in Germany as a result of displacement during the war years. She and Achatz were married in Argentina in 1955. They immigrated to Canada in 1958 and soon thereafter purchased their beloved farm in Cambridge-Narrows, NB. Like many of her generation, she faced hardships which she met head-on. Perseverance was her strength in all aspects of her life. Our mother was a dedicated farmer, a passionate gardener, a baker of the best cakes always served with whipped cream, which she invited the world to come and enjoy no matter how busy; she was tireless in her life and instilled this virtue in her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The story of her life-- which could fill a mini-series -- will be carried forward by us, her family.
We want to express our sincere appreciation to the dedicated health care workers at Thomas Hall, Parkland Shannex in Fredericton, along with the outside caregivers who provided our mother with love and respect.
At our mother’s request, there will be no visitation or funeral. Memorials may be made to a charity of your choice. The family will have a Celebration of her amazing life at her beloved farm in late July to which all who knew her are invited.
