Biography

When someone is identified as a natural leader, certain images come to mind. First thoughts are of a no-nonsense, tough-minded, dedicated and disciplined person. This description accurately fits Ursulita Aseron Farmer who was indeed a born manager. She will be remembered as being highly organized, practical and realistic. She was a person who always carried a strong sense of duty with her throughout her life. Possessed with traditional “old school” morals, Ursulita was an individual who clearly communicated to those around her just who she was and what she was all about. Everyone acquainted with Ursulita knew her as a well-respected woman who was a stable force in her community.

Even as a youngster, Ursulita learned to be objective and decisive. Her faith in the principles of authority and dependability was something that she carried with her throughout her life.

As a young girl, Ursulita was able to put her natural abilities to work. She was a bit like the sergeant of the family, helping to make sure that the others did what they should do and that they avoided those things they weren’t supposed to. In other words, she liked to organize and direct. Ursulita was raised with five siblings. She had an older brother Tony and younger brother Jaime, and three older sisters Medy, Nessie and Chit. Ursulita had an inborn appreciation for the order in the family, allowing for the oldest members to be the most respected and to take on the most responsibility. For Ursulita, this was a natural order of life, one she gladly embraced.
