Ursula (Hoch) Sadlowski passed away peacefully and unexpectedly on Sept. 25, 2021, at age 84, in San Francisco.

Ursula was born in Hamburg and emigrated from Germany to San Francisco in 1953. After marrying the love of her life, Werner, she and her late husband moved to Pacifica where she lived a full life, positively impacting everyone she met. Ursula was a renaissance woman for her time, known for her warm heart, strong will, and the positive influence she made on everyone she met. In addition to having a full career at United Airlines spanning over 25 years, she raised a wonderful family of two boys and cared for her husband after he was diagnosed with an illness. Despite their limitations, she and Werner traveled the world and made friends across the globe. They hosted many new and old friends in their Pacifica home.

Ursula was a gifted artist who freely shared her countless beautiful creations with family and friends over the years. Ursula volunteered her time in various organizations including tutoring for Project Read and Concordia Sport Club of San Francisco where her husband was a founding member. Ursula’s life cannot be summed up in the many things she accomplished but in the number of people she touched. She was never one that needed the spotlight or accolades but was a force for multiplying the good in the world. She loved to laugh, always had a smile and made time for everyone, especially her five grandchildren who adored their Oma. She will be missed.

She is survived by her sons, Don (Mary Lyn), of Belmont, and Dennis, of Dallas, Texas; her three brothers, Willie, Peter, and Werner Hoch; and grandchildren Emma, John, Max, Erika and Jenna. Rest in peace, Oma. We will miss you.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, limited funeral services will be held for family and close friends at Duggan’s Serra Mortuary. The memorial is livestreamed for those not able to attend: https://vimeo.com/619588905/fe49ce9ce6. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (msfocus.org).
