Jupiter, FL- Ursula Fischer Tancrel, 89, died Friday, December 15, at home. She was predeceased by her husband, Edwin M. Tancrel, in 1999. They were married for 50 years. Surviving relatives in the United States are two nieces, Gwenette Isché Kangis, of Providence, RI, and Merrette Isché, of Auburn, AL; four great-nephews; one great-great nephew; and one great-great niece. In Germany is one surviving relative, a cousin, Eva-Marie Gest, of Berlin. In addition, she leaves her dear friend of more than 25 years, Heide Praver.

Mrs. Tancrel worked for many years managing marketing and sales for Avon International in New York City, traveling all over the world for the company.

After retiring to Wilmington, VT, where they lived for more than 25 years, the Tancrels opened Crafthaus, a studio representing such fine artists as Will Moses (painting) and Josh Simpson (blown glass.) Both of the Tancrels were artists themselves. Mrs. Tancrel created intricate cloisonné jewelry, and Mr. Tancrel, masterful brass and copper wall sculptures.

A memorial Mass will be celebrated Saturday, January 13, at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Wilmington, at 12 pm. Burial will take place at Riverview Cemetery following the service. There are no calling hours. As a gift, it would be greatly appreciated if people would perform at least one act of kindness each day in Ursula’s memory.
