Ursula was born on February 17, 1924 in Rehau, West Germany to Franz and Adele Kalb. After marrying her American soldier, Jack, in 1952, she immigrated to the United States and lived for several years in the Albany, New York area. She later moved to Washington, DC where she worked for the Social Security Administration until her retirement in 1989. She then relocated to Lambertville, New Jersey and enjoyed a second career in real estate.
Ursula enjoyed hiking and was an active member of various Volksmarch organizations in Washington, DC, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. She supported the Friends of the Delaware Canal and she was also an animal lover who was well-known in Lambertville as an animal advocate.
She is survived by her daughter, Patricia Gridley and her husband, Chuck, of Skaneateles, NY, her grandchildren, Kate Ahlers and her husband Dan of Marcellus, NY, and Patrick Gridley of Auburn, NY, and her great-grandson, Connor Ahlers.
