Mrs. Ursula Bratschitsch, 85, of Newnan, widow of the late John Bratschitsch, died Sunday, March 1, 2020 at her residence.

Born August 28, 1934 in Kornelowka, Poland, she was a daughter of the late Antoni Dziuba and the late Aniela Magryta Dziuba.  As a child, she survived the Nazi occupation of Poland and after the Allies liberated her country, she and her sister helped the family by selling the chocolate given to them by American soldiers.  Ursula enjoyed exercising and had worked out at the Piedmont Fitness Center since the early 1990’s.  She was an accomplished seamstress who also loved to knit and was considered to be a fashionista in the way that she dressed.  Ursula was a member of St. George Catholic Church for 40 years and was kind and full of life.  She was a very particular person and loved celebrating everyone’s birthday.

Survivors include her daughters, Irene Bratschitsch of Atlanta, Susan Deering (Bob) of West Vancouver, Elizabeth Johnson (Bernie) of Peachtree City, and Barbara Lanier (Theodore Smith) of Roswell; sons, John Bratschitsch (Winnie) of Cambridge, Ontario, and Tony Bratschitsch of Dundas, Ontario; brothers, Mike Dziuba of Ontario, and Richard Dziuba of Ottawa; sister, Teresa Szypula of Ontario; grandchildren, Maryna Bratschitsch, Ashley Persaud, John Bratschitsch, Tiffany Heinpel, Caitlin Johnson, Catherine Johnson, Savannah Hamilton, and Christina Lanier; and great-grandchildren, Preston Heinpel, Summer Heinpel, Mary Bratschitsch, Emily Bratschitsch, and Cara Bratschitsch.
