Ursula Averett

Ursula Elisabeth Seibert Averett was the Catholic wife of the Rev. Fr. Marvis Vinson Averett, SGS for 47 years until his passing. Our beautiful momma has danced her way to heaven and into the arms of our dad on June 8, 2014. Her life on earth was spectacular. She lived every day with boundless energy.

Momma's vitality and grace were world class. Ursula met our father while he was serving in the Army in Germany. She was a military wife who stood by our father during his 20 years of service to our country, including his 20 years teaching school.

Ursula was a loving mother to her seven children. Her heart strong, her wisdom wise! Momma will be deeply missed.

She is preceded in death by her daughter, Karin Kilgore, and husband, Marvis Vinson Averett Sr. She left behind six children, Marcus (Sandra) Averett of Kingman, Marvis (Guialyn) Averett of Patterson, Calif., Kevin (Chong) Averett of Kingman, Cornelia (Mark) Becker of Georgetown, Ill., Patricia (David) Moreau of Tuba City, Ariz., and Kenneth (Tonya) of Yuma. She was a grandmother of 33 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren and one on the way. She also leaves behind a brother, August (Amanda) Seibert; and two sisters, Heide (Charles) Hobbs and Elenore (Lorry) Baumgartner.

Signing off: "Stink Arsch."
