Eleanor Margaret Voss (Nee Schmuland)

January 10, 1941 — November 4, 2023

January 10, 1941 ~November 4, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Eleanor Margaret Voss (nee Schmuland) on Saturday, November 4, 2023 at the age of 82. 

Left to cherish her memory is her lovingly husband Norman Voss of 64 years, her children, Wayne (Kim), Janet (Mark) and Sylvia (Duncan); precious grandchildren and great grandchildren; her siblings, sisters-in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Mom was born in Green Bay, Manitoba.  She was one of 12 children, so life was very busy on the farm.   The era that Mom was raised in taught her the importance of the finer things in life.  On September 19, 1959, she married the love of her life, Norman Voss.  From this day forward life would change and include all kinds of new adventures. Soon after, these adventures would include three children.  Being a Mom was something that she always cherished.

Mom for the most part was a stay home Mom.  She spent endless hours sewing dresses for us girls, baking, cooking and entertaining. However, once her children were well on their way, she decided to fulfill a passion of her own, and that was to become a hairdresser.  The family went thru many practise runs until she mastered this new profession. 

Mom was proud of her husbands’ musical talents.  You could count on seeing her in the front row at all of Dads jamming gatherings.  Once Dad had retired from this talent, Mom would continue this legacy by daily playing recorded tapes of his music, playing them loud enough for all to hear. 

Becoming a Nanny for Mom was something that she truly cherished. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren meant the world to her.  She loved them with all her heart (as she would say).  She has instilled in each of them so many values and beautiful memories that will have a special place in their hearts.

Our family events will never be the same without you Mom/Nanny.  Your conversations, your special phrases, your smile and giggle will be truly missed.  We are blessed to have all these memories to cherish.

We will miss you so much.  Rest in peace our special lady!

Eleanor’s family sincerely thanks the staff at the Beausejour Hospital and Eastgate Lodge.  Your kindness and compassion will never be forgotten.

Funeral Service will be held on Monday, November 13th at 11:00 a.m. at Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue E., Beausejour. Interment will follow in Green Bay Cemetery.
