Ulla loved her family, extended family, and friends above all and dedicated her life to them. She was always willing to help anyone in any way she could. She taught us so very much.
The family would like to thank the staff of Eagleview at Stanford Seniors Village from the Ebottom of our hearts for their exemplary care, dedication, and love to Ulla right up to the time of her passing.
