Ursula Dorothy Vondette August 2, 1925 - March 11, 2018 Ursula passed away, after a brief illness, in her 93rd year, at Lions Gate Hospital. After graduating from Magee High School Ursula joined the WRCNS (Wrens), meeting her future husband, Henry (Hank) Vondette, at the RCN Signals School at HMCS St. Hyacinthe. They married in December 1948 at the chapel of the Royal Naval College in Greenwich (with reception in the college's Painted Hall). During Hank's 37 year naval career Ursula moved many times (England again, Victoria, Halifax, Cornwallis, Canada, USA). She resided in West Vancouver since 1979, when Hank became Vancouver's Harbour Master. She missed Hank very much after his passing in 2006. Ursula's many skills included voracious reading, oil painting, gardening, baking and fine needle work. She was a passionate lifelong volunteer with the Anglican Church, ACW, Girl Guides, LGH volunteers, and Missions to Seafarers. Ursula was the daughter of James and Gladys (Hall) Anderson and was predeceased by her brother Allan. She is survived by her sister Evelyn Anderson, sons Michael (Joanne), Christopher (Sheila), and Timothy Vondette, daughter Nancy Nelson (Roger), grandchildren Alexandra Russell (Mark), Mark (Chelsea Howard) Vondette, Michelle Salomons (Geoff), Elizabeth Vondette, Matthew and Jonathan Vondette (Kate) and Kathryn Bayley (Nick), and great-grandchildren Sacha and Naomi Russell, Kiran and Ziva Salomons and Owen Vondette, all of whom miss her dearly. A memorial service is planned for 2 pm on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at St. Timothy's Church (Sutherland Church), North Vancouver. In lieu of flowers donations in memorium can be made to St. Timothy's Church, The Mission to Seafarers, the SPCA, or the charity of your choice. Our heartfelt thanks to Drs. Byman, Langley and Sugar and the staff at LGH for their kindness to Ursula during her last days. Published in Vancouver Sun and/or The Province on Mar. 14, 2018
