Carol S. Voss of Cedar Rapids passed away peacefully on Wednesday July 29, 2020. Private family services will be held on Monday at the Cedar Memorial Park Chapel of Memories. Dr. James Coyle, Cedar Memorial Certified Celebrant will officiate. The service will be live streamed on Monday August 3rd at 11:00 AM and may be viewed at Burial at Cedar Memorial Park Cemetery. There will be a visitation from 2 to 5 PM on Sunday at the Cedar Memorial Park Funeral Home. As mandated by proclamation, social distancing must be practiced which requires a limited number of people to be allowed into the visitation at one time. The use of facemasks or shields is encouraged.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Elsie Webb of Streator, IL and several siblings.

Carol is survived by her husband, Jim, of 55 years, daughters Carrie Thompson (Bill) of Cedar Rapids; Jamie Rogers (Jason) of Cedar Rapids and five grandchildren: Nick (Shannon), Logan and Josie Thompson and Megan and Jack Rogers, and two siblings, Marge Sullivan of Ottawa, IL and Jim Webb of Fort Worth, TX. 

Carol graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Middle School Education. She taught for a couple of years and then became a full-time homemaker, a very devoted wife and mother. She also taught sewing at Kirkwood Community College and did interior decorating.

Her passion in life was spending time with her family. She loved to walk, do day trips, go antiquing and to garage sales, patronizing the library, gardening, and spending time at Lake Delhi. She loved playing with the grandchildren and being silly. Her philosophy was you had to be a little naughty to have fun. She loved children and talking with the elderly. She was a kid magnet. Kids knew she liked them. Carol will forever be remembered as a wonderful and caring wife, mother and “grammy” and someone who loved children.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to St. Jude’s Hospital or the Shriner’s Hospital in Carol’s name.
