Katherine "Kate" Voss

On March 22nd Katherine “Kate” Voss lost her battle with breast cancer and passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home, surrounded by all those who have and will always love her. Born October 28th 1940, in Ames, Iowa to Harry and Genavive Berrett. Katherine held many jobs in her life including a flight attendant, medical lab technician, crane operator, and entrepreneur. Owner of “Kate’s Old Strathmore” for over 10 years, Kate provided years of fun filled entertainment for the community before selling and with her husband Roy went on to buy the Royal Gorge Cinema and Skyline Theater. Just 17 days after owning the cinema it was destroyed by a fire. Down but not beaten, Roy and Kate made a decision to build a new cinema and in 2006 Creekside Cinema opened it’s doors and remains open today. Kate was also a proud member of the city council serving in the early 1990’s. She was a true voice for the people and she took pride in serving them well. With all of her accomplishments in life, Kate always said that her greatest accomplishment were her children. She was an extraordinary mother with a generous nature and forgiving heart. Her love for her children could rival that of a grizzly bear. She was the pillar of all things in our lives. She will live on in each of our hearts and because of her faith in Jesus Christ, we will see her again. Kate is survived by her devoted husband, Roy Voss; their children, Kevin (Jenny) Schwinn, Robert (Amy) Schwinn, James (Becky) Chaney, Karen (Steve) Nothdurft, Linda (Kurt) Epperson, Keri Voss, and Roy Jr. (Tracy) Voss; her cherished baby brother, Ray (Patty) Berrett and their daughter, Naomi; seventeen grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. A celebration of Kate’s life will be on Saturday, April 14th 2pm at the First Baptist Church, 107 N 7th, Canon City Colorado. In lieu of flowers, the family request that donations be made to the Orchard of Hope under team Trendsetters, as she was always proud of the dedication and hard work her daughters devoted to this cause. Kate was a generous supporter of Orchard of Hope and other local charities. She will be greatly missed.
