I was saddened to hear of Pat's passing. I knew her from Henry Raab and PTA. She gave so selflessly, was always kind to everyone.

Steve and Lisa and the entire Voss Family...my sincere condolences in the loss of your mother. My heart warmed to see her photo and to recognize her loving presence in memories from 50 years ago as a parent at Henry Raab School. I know you will be comforted, even in her absence, by a lifetime of loving memories. Fondly, Ethan.

Craig and I send our sympathy. We knew Pat for many years. We lived on Union Ave and often saw her when we took walks. My favorite memory of Pat is her serving as an election judge. She would announce Mrs. Benedick is here when I came in to vote. I always knew I was at the right place.

I met Pat when my daughter married her son. We have had some delightful times together, it is difficult to accept that she has gone but I San sure she is reunited with Marty. She leaves a lasting good impression on so many. God rest her and unite her with Marty. Carol Blue

Lisa Voss has been a close friend of mine since the early 90s. During all of our times together and discussions her mother was a presence in Lisa's life. I have been privileged at times to be a recipient of the fruits of her garden. I want to offer my condolences to all the members of her family and friends. Mrs. Voss will continue to impact all her childrens' lives. Both parents raised a remarkable family.
