June 20, 1939 - February 3, 2018
Ursula Neer, 78, of Hillsdale, passed away Saturday, February 3, 2018 at her home. She was born June 20, 1939 in Braubach, Germany, the daughter of Karl and Lina (Ruck) Spengler. Ursula married Ronald Neer in 1958 and he preceded her in death in 1993.
Ursula appreciated nature and was a steward of the land. She had boundless energy and a passion for trees, flowers, Germany and her family - all giving her great pride. Ursula lived with purpose; she impacted many, especially her friends and children. She and her husband Ron will both be remembered for their integrity, character and strength.
Survivors include her two daughters, Laura Neer (Stuchell) of Battle Creek and Penny Neer of Hillsdale; son, Rusty (Nakina) Neer of Princeton, Texas; and seven grandchildren; Katie Stuchell and Paul Stuchell, both of Battle Creek, McKenna Thayer of Detroit, Alana Thayer of Mt. Pleasant, Lauren, Gregory and Karleigh Neer, all of Texas.
Ursula was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Ronald and sister, Erna Frank.
A celebration of life for Ursula Neer will be held at a later date this summer. There will be no services or calling hours at this time. Arrangements are entrusted to the VanHorn-Eagle Funeral Home.
Memorial contributions are suggested to the Greater Hillsdale Humane Society or Hospice of Hillsdale County.
