Betty Lue (James) Voss Obituary
Betty Lue Voss was called home to her eternal reward on Monday Aug. 12, 2013, surrounded by tremendous love and many family members.
Betty was born on Dec. 3, 1935, in Foley, Mo., to George and Ruth James. The James family settled in Superior, Wis., where Betty lived until she was 18. She was married in Torrance, Calif., on Sept. 28, 1955, to Edward Joseph Voss.
She is survived by her husband, Edward, and their nine children and their spouses/significant others: Michael, Stephen (Stephanie), Vicki (Jeff), Timothy (Joyce), Christi (Bob), Mary (Mike), Ed (Tracy), Sandy (Mike), Amy (John), 16 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and her sisters Loretta, Ruth Ann, Peggy and Kathy.
Betty spent her entire life dedicated to her family and to serving others. She led by example, teaching her children about love and helping God's children in need. She was a licensed foster care mother, active in the civil rights movement and a tireless activist who worked passionately to address social issues. Her involvement in many neighborhood organizations from a grass roots beginning led to elected positions as an Alderman in the City of Milwaukee, and later a county supervisor.
Through her life's work, Betty has impacted many lives, and she will be truly missed.
A memorial service will be held at Our Lady of the Light Catholic Church, in La Luz, at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 16, 2013.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Doctors without Borders in her name.
The Voss family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the arrangements. Cremation will take place at PCS.
