Urshula Pike Obituary, Death – Ursula- R. Pike, who was 76 years old when she died away on May 30, 2011, did so surrounded by the loving members of her family. Charles E. Pike of Dover had a devoted wife in her, and she was that woman. On October 26 and 27, 2010, the couple celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary with family and friends. Ursula served as a source of motivation for everybody who had the good fortune to have crossed paths with her. Tolerance, strength, and the ethic that one should never give up when there is still hope were values that she inculcated. What a woman, what a mother, and what a grandma she was, and she will be remembered for all time and never forgotten because she continues to live on in each and every member of her family.
Ursula was born on December 6, 1934, in Breslau, which is located in the state of Silesia in Germany. She was the daughter of the late Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Legal and Else (Schneider) Legal and had been a Lutheran her entire life. She had a fulfilling career as a flight attendant and airline ticket manager before devoting her life to raising her four children and five grandchildren after retiring from the industry. Ursula was a remarkable woman who was fluent in four different languages, had extensive international travel experience, was a great and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, and was well liked by everyone who had the pleasure of her company. Being with her grandchildren was by far her favorite way to pass the time.

Pike and Kristin (Wilson) Pike of Dover; and her son Dr. David Wilhelm Pike of Dover; her grandsons Christian, Nicholas, and Philip Nase and Erich Wilhelm and Kar In addition to her parents, Ursula was predeceased by a brother named Hans Legal.
