Born on March 3, 1934 in Sorowski, Germany, she was the daughter of the late Franz and Charlotte (Zedler) Kleiner. Ursula worked as a lab technician for 40 years before retiring in 1999. For 30 years, she had worked for Dr. David Wasley in his Bristol and Terryville offices. Her last 10 years as a lab tech she had spent with Dr. Edward Clerkin in his Farmington office. Ursula was an avid “birder”, spending much time behind binoculars outdoors watching many species of birds. She was also a very active volunteer at the Animal Rescue Foundation in Terryville.
