Obituary for Sue Carolyn Voss Lawrence

November 12, 2016
New Jersey


Sue Carolyn Voss Lawrence entered into rest surrounded by her loving family on November 12, 2016. Taking dance and ballet lessons from early childhood, she loved to perform which carried her through to a professional career. She attended grammar school in Linwood, NJ and graduated high school in 1947. While still in high school she performed in Special Services for the wounded WW2 military at the England General Hospital in Atlantic City. After graduation she traveled to New York City to attend the Feagin School of Dramatic Art at Rockefeller Center. After graduating from there she did radio drama, stage plays, and along with a dance partner became the dance team of the Johnny Weissmuller (the favorite TARZAN in the movies) Follies and Water Show. In addition to this she was also a water ballet swimmer in the show that toured the United States and foreign countries.

Leaving the show in the 1950's she returned to Linwood, NJ and opened the Voss Theater Workshop teaching many young students to dance and perform. It was during this time she married James M. Earle II and moved to Pensacola, FL where he became a Marine pilot, later being in the presidential squadron. They had two children, Jaime Sue Earle and James M. Earle III. Both are alive and well. Their father retired as Major and is now deceased.

While married in the Marine Corps, Sue, being an accomplished artist, painted many murals for the Officers Club, Cadet Battalion, restaurants and homes. In the 1960's the marriage failed and in the 1970's she met Robert M. Lawrence, an old high school friend, rekindling their friendship and leading to a lasting marriage.

Services are private at the convenience of the family.
