Ursel Gertrude Trimm, 83, of Fayetteville, passed away on Thursday, June 1, 2023, at her residence with her family by her side.
Ursel was born on Nov. 13, 1939, in Berlin, Germany, to the late Wilhelm Otto Schrader and Charlotta Rother Schrader.
As a young girl, Ursel lived through hard times. However, she never lost hope. After moving to the United States, she took night classes and earned her GED. She was formerly employed in the jewelry department at the Post Exchange at Fort Bragg.
Ursel was known for having a green thumb and the love of gardening. She had her very own aviary, where she housed a variety of tropical birds that she adored.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Joseph H. Trimm; sons, Richard Sheltman and Michael Sheltman; daughter, Carolyn Brady; brother, Klaus Schrader of Brugge, Belgium; five grandchildren; and one great-granddaughter.
