Ursula Von Schroetter

Obituary of Ursula Ruth Von Schroetter

Ursula (Ulla) Von Schroetter (born January 22, 1939, Norderney, Germany) passed away peacefully at age 85 on June 1, 2024 at the Sackville Memorial Hospital.


She is survived by her daughters, Sabine Dietz (Roland Chiasson, Sackville) and Margot Dietz-Wittstock (Jörg, Boren Germany) and her son, Peter Dietz (Suzanne, Springwood, Australia). In Germany, she is survived by her sister, Gisela and her brother, Hermann, and pre-deceased by Ulrich Dietz (divorced).


Her grandchildren had a special place in her heart: Mira and Lena (Sabine, Canada), Jana, Laurin, Emil, Florian (†) (Margot, Germany), and Lucas & Marcus (Peter, Australia), as well as her adopted grandchildren Lia and Annika (Chiasson).


Ulla was a fiercely independent woman, up to the day she went into hospital 4 months ago. She was a teacher in Germany, immigrated to Canada in 1992, was an exceptional knitter and silk painter, and taught aquacise to her “mermaids and one merman”, until she was hospitalized. She loved Gin tonics and everything green, used her apartment balcony to grow flowers and vegetables each year, and talked her plants into becoming as green as they could. She loved travelling and visiting new places, hiking up Gros Morne and the West Coast Trail, flying to Australia to stay with her son and grandchildren, and visiting Germany to spend time with her daughter and other family and friends. Most of all, she loved family and family gatherings, coffee times and meals, Saturday market visits where she knew many of the vendors and getting together with her friends for “Stammtisch” at Café C’est La Vie in Moncton, her residence for over 27 years.


Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Erin Campbell and staff of Campbell’s Funeral Home, 89 Bridge Street, Sackville, N.B. (364-8188). In keeping with Ursula’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no services at this time.


In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Ulla may be made to the Sackville Memorial Hospital Foundation towards their outdoor garden project, and the indoor green space at the hospital where she enjoyed some peaceful time while in Sackville.
