Ursula (Morgalla) Szymczak

Ursula (Morgalla) Szymczak, 86, of Carter Street, Newburyport, companion of the late Vaclav Kouba, died peacefully Friday morning July 10, 2009 in the Kaplan Family Hospice House in Danvers, following her brief illness.

Born in Chorzow, Poland October 22, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Leon and Anna (Uschuk) Morgalla. Ursula immigrated to the United States in 1950 and settled in Chicago, followed shortly thereafter by her family. Following the death of her companion, she and her daughter enjoyed traveling extensively and lived throughout the US. She has been a Newburyport resident for the last six years. Her passions were her family, her dogs and food. Those who loved her will remember her for her generosity and wisdom.

She is survived by her daughter, Gilda Tunney and her husband Gilbert of Ipswich, a brother, Michael Morgalla of Madison, WI, her sister, Regina Gicela and nephews Michael and Raymond Gicela, all of Lombard, IL.

Private funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Hospice of the North Shore, 75 Sylvan Street, Suite B-102, Danvers, MA 01923
