Ms Amanda Voss

1978 – 2021

 

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Amanda Voss from a brain hemorrhage on January 7th, 2021 – age 42.

 

She leaves to mourn her devoted parents, Gunter Voss and Maciejka Slawinska-Voss; her loving brother, Christopher Voss and sister-in-law, Martine Tawfik; her long time partner, best friend and soulmate of 23 years, Mike McCatty; her grandma, Elfie Voss; her maternal uncle, Chester Niski and Elisabeth Plourde and the many cousins in Poland and Germany she hoped to visit when Covid-free travel resumes. Also feeling her loss will be her many friends from childhood as well as those she made while working for Bombardier Aerospace and elsewhere.

 

Amanda’s enthusiastic smile could light up a room! Lovely to look at, creative, genuine and smart, she had the kindest of hearts. Her effervescence and commitment extended to her management job at Bombardier where she rose to director level prior to being diagnosed with leukemia.  One of her superiors commented: “We were very fortunate to work with such a wonderful person.”

 

Her last two and a half years of combatting AML (acute myelogenic leukemia) were heroic! Her tenacity and optimism in beating this terrible blood cancer impressed her closest as well as the staff and doctors at both the Jewish General and Maisonneuve Rosemont hospital where she got her stem cell transplant last summer. No complaints, always looking to tomorrow! To quote her ncology hematologist, Dr. Cassis: “What determination and what a fighter! So near to recovery and now this!”

 

Her illness intensified her faith. Tanya, a family friend, commented: “The best exchange I had with Amanda was a faith-in-God conversation at her brother’s wedding in 2019. She said that in her tough days with leukemia, God always sent her “the right person” just to know that He is with her.  She fought the good fight of faith, leaving a beautiful legacy. She will be missed by so many!”

 

Thanks to all at both hospitals for trying so very hard! And thank you Father Sabbath for being there! Donations in Amanda’s memory may be made to: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada,   liscanada.org

 

Due to the pandemic, her funeral Mass at St. Thomas a Becket in Pierrefonds and a traditional burial has been put off until May.

    I would like to transmit my sincere and profound condolences to the Voss family for the loss of Amanda. I have worked with Chris within Development and Peace this past year and was very saddened to hear of her struggle with leukemia and eventual complications. She sounds like she was an amazing person.

    I have myself combatted this disease for 10 years and pray each day that more research develops so that treatments become easier, more efficient and that the disease may also be prevented better.

    I will keep Amanda and your family in my prayers. May her soul rest in peace.

Amanda is with God, our loving Creator now and her spirit will continue to live on in the hearts of all those who loved her so dearly. May you be comforted during this time of grief and touching memories.
