Ursula Maria Dickinson
1936 - 2012, Santa Barbara
Ursula passed away on December 22, 2012, in Spain near a place her and her husband, Robert Martin, have wintered for the past 26 years. She had been battling cancer over the past six months, and was accompanied by her son, Sven Dickinson, on a final pilgrimage to see friends and family in Spain.
She was an incredibly loving and devoted wife to Robert, an exceptionally supportive mother to Sven, a lifelong friend to his father Rufus, and a proud grandmother to their grandson, Kiva. Ursula loved people and left behind a treasure chest of friends around the world whose lives she touched with her kindness, warmth, sacrifice, and boundless spirit.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the American Cancer Society would be gratefully appreciated.
