Obituary

Age 100, of Burnaby BC on Monday, December 31, 2018. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Lewis Roy Lingley, Truro NS. Daughter of Daniel and Gertrude Brady, Glen Tay (Perth) ON; sister of Lawrence, John, Boyd, Dennis, Thomas and Kevin. Mother of Mary Lou, John (Katherine Cienciala), Anne, Maria and Julie; grandmother of Arlyn, Robert, Tyrone (Heather Quigley), Alexia, Kate, Hannah, Brady, Zoë and Claire; great-grandmother of Kingston. Born on a farm, she grew up loving to skate on the frozen, winding river behind the family house. She moved to Ottawa during WWII to help in the war effort where she met and married Lew, a veteran of the RCAF and an academic. Lew moved his family to Vancouver BC in 1953 to take up a position at UBC but soon after, fell ill to polio and died in 1962. Ursula’s strong faith and sense of community led to active involvement with several organizations: the CWL, the Legion of Mary, Girl Guides, the Focolare Movement. She was a supporter of many conservation causes, especially those involving environmental stewardship. She was a dedicated gardener and her roses and birdbath were a constant joy. She moved to Royal City Manor, New Westminster BC, in 2014. Her family greatly appreciates the kind and attentive care by all the staff there.
Mass of Christian Burial Saturday, January 5, 10:00 am at St Peter’s Church, New Westminster BC and burial at 11:45 am at Forest Lawn, Burnaby BC. Pallbearers are Johnny Christie, Brady Lingley, Tyrone Lingley, Kingston Slade, William Slade and Glen Tanaka.
