Ursula Camp (née Krallmann) passed away at the age of 76 at Bob Rumball Home for the Deaf in Barrie, ON, after a lengthy and brave fight against cancer.

Ursula was born May 9, 1948, in Neihm Husten, Germany to parents Alfred and Theresa Krallmann, along with her twin sister, Gisela.  Ursula went on to fall in love with a Canadian soldier, Lance Camp.  They came to Canada to raise their family in the 1970’s.

She is predeceased by her parents (Alfred and Theresa), siblings (Renate, Elenor, and Ernst) and her loving husband (Lance).

Ursula and her family ultimately settled in the Base Borden/Angus area of Ontario.  Ursula was known for her deep love of her children, Diane and Danny.  She was a supportive and passionate mother who always encouraged her children through sport.  Along with attending many hours at ice rinks, baseball diamonds and soccer pitches; she volunteered and raised money to support youth sports at any opportunity.  She was also known for her incredible work ethic and attention to detail.  Mum loved sports, but her favourite was baseball, she rarely missed a broadcasted Blue Jays game:  She loved her Jays.

One of her biggest loves in her life was most definitely her grandchildren.  She gleamed with love and pride whenever she was around them.  She will be dearly missed by Brendan and Alyson Park and Jordan and Brooklyn Camp.  They brought her the most joy in her life, she treasured all the time she spent with them.

Without a doubt, Mum’s best friend throughout life was her sister Gisela.  As they say, twins have a connection that only another twin could understand.  They could finish each others sentences and since mum’s illness, not a day would go by without her loving sister calling her multiple times a day to check in and see how she was doing.  They shared a sisterhood and a friendship that is irreplaceable.  Mum was truly blessed with the most loving and caring sister of all.

Ursula will be missed dearly by her son-in-law Josef Park and daughter-in-law, Melissa Agostino.  She will also be dearly missed by her treasured nieces, Joanne Campbell (Moe, Megan, Dylan and Andrew), Barbara Booker (Sarah and Tyler) and Jennifer Lowe (Jessica and Ethan).

Mum has gone to be with Dad once again.  I picture them dancing circles around the dance floor, both healthy, both happy to be together once again.  We love you mum.  We will miss you every day.  But I believe one day we will see you once again.  I know you will be watching over Tante Gisela, your grandchildren, and the rest of us, always.

Our family would like to extend our thanks to the wonderful care team at Bob Rumball Home for the Deaf (the Nurses, PSW’s, Support Staff, Admin team, Dr. K. Wright and PA, Michael).  We cannot express how much your loving care and tenderness meant to mum and our entire family.  We would also like to thank Dr. Kerstin Mossman for her palliative care and understanding throughout the last two years.

Lastly, we would like to thank all of our friends and family that have supported us throughout mum’s journey.  We have been blessed by you all.

At Ursula’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at the Bob Rumball Home for the Deaf on Saturday, July 20, 2024 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (1 Royal Parkside Dr, Barrie, ON)

    My deepest condolences to Danny and Diane for the loss of your mum Ursula. She was a well liked person at CFTDC. I worked with her for years and we were at the arena for hockey every other year. RIP my friend.
