Obituary of Ursula Lee Kuhn
Ursula Lee Kuhn passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 4, 2020 in Slidell, Louisiana at the age of 97. She was born on January 22, 1923 in New Orleans, Louisiana to the late Thomas J. Lee and Henrietta Deutschmann. Ursula was the beloved wife of the late Edward M. Kuhn for 59 years. She was the loving mother of Audrianne K. Quintana (Carlos) of Mandeville, LA and Mary Ann K. Campbell (Fred) of Brentwood, TN.
Ursula was the proud grandmother of six grandchildren, Mark Quintana (Lisa), Faith Quintana Siemssen (Jon), Daniel Quintana (Misty), Hope Quintana Seaman (Michael), Keith Campbell (Shannon), and Bryan Ross Campbell (the late Bekkah Campbell) and fourteen great-grandchildren, Michael Quintana (Claire), Jacquelyn Quintana, Jared Siemssen, Zachary Siemssen, Jackson Quintana, Nicholas Quintana, Isabella Quintana, Lily Seaman, Aiden Campbell, Keira Campbell, Keller Campbell, Reyna Campbell, Rowan Campbell, and Kainan Campbell.
She was preceded in death by her siblings Florence Lee Connolly (Patrick), Thomas Lee (Mildred), Gloria Lee Rando (Peter), John Lee, Beverly Lee Calia, and Betty Lee Nye (Henry) and sister-in-law Ann Marie Kuhn Timphony. She is survived by her sister-in-law Rose Marie Lee and brothers-in-law Victor Calia and Joseph Timphony. She leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews.
Ursula grew up in New Orleans and was a devout Catholic, active at St. Maurice Church in New Orleans for many years. Later she was a member of St. Mark Catholic Church in Chalmette and then an active member of St. Ann Catholic Church in Clement Harbor, MS. Ursula lived a full life and cherished every moment.
Ursula was a seamstress and knitted as well as crocheted in her younger years. Her main hobby was crocheting (as many as 100 baby blankets a year for Crisis Pregnancy, donations to church fund raisers, and as gifts to many). She and her late husband, Eddie, were owners of EKCO Distributors, Inc. They were active members of the American Legion, and she was recognized for her community service by RSVP in Hancock County, MS and was awarded Volunteer of the Year by the American Red Cross Services to Armed Forces in 2014. They both enjoyed spending time with their many friends. After moving to Live Oak Village in 2016, Ursula continued crocheting as she listened to audio books, doing her daily exercise, and playing BINGO. She also looked forward to weekly communion services and monthly masses ministered by the priests and deacons from St. Luke Catholic Church in Slidell.
The family would like to offer thanks to the staff of Oak Park Village at Slidell Assisted Living Facility, especially Greta, Jeannie, Sharon, and Jennifer and the many caregivers for their care and compassion. We would also like to thank Heritage Hospice nurses Cindy, Margaret, Renee, and Alisha, her CNA, for their extraordinary devotion.
