Eleonore L. “Lore” (Lauster) Voos, 82 of Russell died Tuesday, February 3, 2009 at the Hays Medical Center in Hays, Kansas. Lore was born July 18, 1926 in Stuttgart, Germany, the daughter of Valentin and Maria (Rau) Lauster. She grew up in Stuttgart and attended schools there.
Lore was working in a retail store in Germany when she met Dean Wilbur Voos. They were united in marriage on March 1, 1952 in Stuttgart. This union was blessed with four children; Bob, Connie, Tammy and John. When Dean’s military service was completed in 1952 they moved to Russell to raise their family.
Lore was a devoted wife, loving mother and a homemaker. She also worked as a waitress at Red’s Chicken House and the Daylight Donuts here in Russell.
She was a member of the St. Johns Lutheran Church and the Russell V.F.W. Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed playing Bingo, but nothing was more important than her children and grandchildren’s sports activities.
Her surviving family include her husband of 56 years, Dean of the home; sons, Bob Voos and wife Elaine of Russell and John Voos and wife Kim of Austin, Texas; daughters, Connie McMillen and husband Ken and Tammy Krug all of Russell; sisters, Anni Mossner of Stuttgart, Germany and Margot Dishman of Groover City, California; 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Ernst Lauster and sisters, Gertrude Heimgartner and Hella McElroy.
