Obituary

JEANNE MARIE (CAFFO) VOOS, 68, of Lake of Meadows, Pennsylvania and North Fort Myers, Florida, passed away on June 9, 2020, after a courageous four year battle with ovarian cancer. She was predeceased by her father, Eugene J. Caffo, and is survived by her husband of 47 years, Walter R. Voos, her mother, Diana G. Caffo of Endwell, New York, her brother, John V. Caffo, of Lafayette, Louisiana, her mother and father-in-law, Rita and Walter Voos, of Rochester, New York, her aunt Judy DeSantis, her aunt and uncle, Nancy and Leonard DeSantis, all of Owego, New York, numerous cousins and her best friend, Ellen Hancock-Berti, and many, many dear and devoted friends in New York, Pennsylvania and in Florida.

Jeanne was born and raised by a close knit and loving family in Endwell, New York, attended Maine-Endwell High School and graduated from the State University of New York College at Brockport where she met Walt, who was the love of her life. Jeanne and Walt married and lived in Rochester, New York, where she worked as a Certified Home Health Aide. Her degree was in Public Health, she underwent specialized training and continuing professional education, but the most valuable thing she gave her patients was not learned in any school. Over the years she took care of many people and she was devoted to and became a part of the family of each of them, giving them the best of care, showering them with love and making a real difference in their lives.

Jeanne believed in the old adage that to have a friend you had to be a friend and she lived it every day of her life. She made friends everywhere she went from her best friend from kindergarten to her neighbors at her lake and the community at Herons Glen in Florida, the families of her former patients, and her own doctors and nurses. She literally made friends everywhere and she was infinitely interested in and cared about every one of them, inquired about their families, sent cards and gifts on their birthdays (and their children’s and grandchildren’s birthdays), delivered cookies when there was something to celebrate and food, support and lots of love and understanding when times were hard. Jeanne had a kind, giving and loving spirit and her passing leaves a great hole in many of our lives. She truly will be missed.

A mass celebrating Jeanne’s life will be held at a later date.

Those wishing to, may make a contribution to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance at 14 Pennsylvania Plaza, Suite 2110, New York, New York 10122 (online at: ocrahope.org) or to Hope Hospice at their development office at 9470 HealthPark Circle, Fort Myers, Florida 33908.

    I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your beautiful loving wife. Jeanne fought such a courageous fight and I know her love for you, your family and friends motivated her to stay here on earth as long as humanly possible. Her infectious smile always made everyone’s day so much better no matter what she was battling that particular day. Please remember that true love never dies and that her legacy lives on in your family and in all of our hearts who were blessed to know her. I hope that in time you will find comfort in all your treasured memories of good times together until you meet again. I can’t imagine how much you miss her already but am keeping Jeanne and you in my prayers. I do know that God is truly delighted with his newest angel

    Jeanne Marie now walks where angels tread. I imagine that heaven got a little brighter when she arrived. She will be greatly missed until we see her again. I can envision her skipping up and saying "Hey Buddy!". I am so grateful to have her in my life. Our condolences and continued prayers go out to you and all of your family, Walt. Debra and Zenon

    So sorry to hear this sad news. When I first met Walt at Brockport he was a real Romeo. Jeanne was able to settle him down and obviously become the Love of his life. She was a very special person, not just for Walt but for all who knew her.
