Voyer, Ellen M. 96

  • Pittsburgh
  • Born: 1917-10-10
  • Died: 2014-07-10
  • Funeral Home: Weddell-Ajak, Aspinwall | Get Directions
  • Ellen M. Voyer, 96, passed quietly Thursday, July 10, 2014, at home, in Pittsburgh. She was a woman known for her inner and outer beauty, elegance and grace, active mind and wisdom, kind, loving spirit and, above all, love of family. Ellen was born Oct. 10, 1917, in Bonn, Germany. She was the youngest of seven children, a daughter of a prosperous furniture retailer. In her early 20s, she moved to New York City and launched a business designing and manufacturing high fashion mannequins and sculpting famous "pinup girls". She was highlighted in Life magazine for her unique artistic designs and business savvy. She would become an accomplished sculptress, painter and art importer. After World War II, while visiting family in Germany, she met George Voyer, a handsome, young, U.S. veteran, who was managing the hotel where she was staying. This led to a lifelong love affair and 61 year marriage. They were true soul mates. George became an executive with Macy's and they traveled the whole world together. Passionate about politics, Ellen became treasurer of the Women's National Republican Club, N.Y. A frequent contributor to local newspapers, she expressed her conservative values on many current events. Ellen's greatest joy, though, was in feeding and entertaining her family and friends. She would serve smoked salmon and a nice wine, a family favorite. She and George attended many philanthropic balls, where they enjoyed their love of ballroom dancing. They were a strikingly elegant couple. Ellen's non-judgmental counsel and unconditional love were a source of strength and comfort to all that knew her. They raised their family in South Orange, N.J., until 2011, when they moved to Pittsburgh to be closer to their daughter. After George passed in 2012, Ellen spent her last year at Amber Woods, where she was tenderly cared for by a wonderful group of "lady-sitters", who were all charmed by "Miss Ellen's" grace and gentle spirit. We thank them all dearly. We are at peace now, knowing that Mom and Dad are reunited in heaven, dancing to their favorite Cole Porter tune. We love and miss you, Mom! She is survived by her son, Edmund Voyer; daughter, Marion Auray and her husband, Bob; and grandchildren, Alexandra and Teddy and their mother, Dominique. Join us in a Celebration of Ellen's Life from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, 2014, at the Pittsburgh Field Club, with shared remembrances at 7 p.m. Arrangements by WEDDELL-AJAK FUNERAL HOME, Aspinwall.
