Ursula Livingston passed away peacefully at Sidney All Care Centre. Ursula emigrated to Canada at a young age.

After several years working for Air Canada as a Flight Attendant she enrolled at York University and obtained a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies. After retirement she became a resident of Saltspring Island. Ursula spent a lifetime promoting environmental issues and had a keen love and respect for all animals, especially her many canine companions. She was an avid reader and a regular at the Saltspring Public Library and took great joy in gardening. She was a member of the Salt Spring Island Branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women, serving as its President for several years.

Predeceased by her husband, Jake, and Jake’s son Least, she leaves behind her sisters Ingrid, Gerda and Karin, niece Carola and family, her husband’s children Sally and Zeke/Tina and family, and many friends.

Notation from Ursula’s family: “With love, your sister Ingrid with Carola, Benni and Sonja,” and from close friends “May Ursula Rest in Peace. With sincere best wishes, Sandra and Kelly and Family.”

Thank you to doctors and staff at Lady Minto Hospital and Sidney All Care Centre. A special thank you to Sandra and Janet who supported Ursula throughout her last few years. Donations can be made to a charity of choice, or planting a tree in Ursula’s name would be a fitting tribute to honour her love of nature.


  1. I am an old friend of Ursulas from Toronto and just saw this obituary. I had feared the worst when I had not heard from her for a while. She was a great friend, full of ideas, humour and love for adventure and travel.

    WHEN did Ursula actually pass away? Thank you for letting me know.
