Ursula Kretschmaier

May 16, 1936 - October 25, 2021 Oxford, PA | Age 85 A Beloved Mom, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and Amazing Warrior


Kretschmaier, Ursula (nee Lubcke), our beloved Mom, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother, passed away peacefully in Oxford, PA on October 25, 2021.

Ursula was an amazing warrior who has been battling illness for many years.

Born May 16, 1936 in Hamburg, Germany, Ursula’s early life was not simple, as she grew up as a young girl in WWII Germany. In her late teens, she emigrated to the United States and quickly met and married the love of her life, Rolf Kretschmaier (also an immigrant from WWII Germany). Rolf and Ursula’s fortunes turned, as they were happy, truly loved each other, and enjoyed their life together for over 50 years.

Ursula especially enjoyed cooking, the beach, fishing, family get togethers, weekend trips, vacations, and outings as a family.

Ursula’s loving husband Rolf passed in 2008 and she was also preceded in death by her sister, Karen Steputat, and both her mother, Karla and father, Otto.

Ursula loved, and was close with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Ursula is survived by sons, Michael (Anne), Thomas (Renee) and Richard (Kristine). She is survived by grandchildren, Rebecca (Matt), Douglas (Lori), Thomas John (Alana), Christine (Kyle), Megan (Frank), and Emily; and great grandchildren, Benjamin, Olivia, Lukas, Aubrey, Alyssa, and Kamryn.

Ursula was loved and will be missed. May she find comfort and peace.

  2. I was always greeted warmly by Ursula when I visited Ware Village, where my husband was also a resident. She had such a sweet and loving way, and shared love and concern with everyone she met. I especially enjoyed sitting with her outdoors in the warm weather,hearing stories of her life,and raising her family . Her strength and life, certainly made a impression on mine. She was beautiful inside and out. Chris Higgins, Oxford,PA

  4. Mrs. Kretschmaier (as I knew her) was also loved by her neighbor’s back in the day’s of our youth. She introduced me to the omelet. I never knew you could do that to an egg:-) We were as comfortable in her house as much as we were in our own. The photographs chosen for this memorial is perfect as it is exactly as I remember her. I love to think that she and Mr. ‘K’ have become reacquainted now in a much better place.

    And to her surviving family, my heart felt condolences on your loss! And especially to her three boys, I love you guys…..you are truly my brothers!!
