Kathryn June Voight
Kathryn June Voight (‘Kaye”), formerly of Lomira, went to her Heavenly Home on July 13, 2023 at the age of 87. Born July 10, 1936 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin to Ulysses Kintzler and June Kintzler (Ferdon), she spent her formative years in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and graduated from Fond du Lac High School in 1954. She married Calvin M. Voight on October 13, 1955 in Lomira and had two children, James Voight (Jodie) of Fond du Lac and Jodi Kalmus (Ronald) of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, all who have survived her. She is also survived by her sisters Susan Saletri (Charles); Mary Krueger (Steven) and Lynn Fay (James); seven grandchildren: Samantha Rice (Collin), Joshua Kalmus (Emily), Amanda Johnson (Aaron), Lexi Rademann (Ryan), James Voight Jr (fiancée Emma Sippel), Jackson Voight and Joseph Voight; and four great grandchildren: Bennett Rice, Brynlee Rice, Hallie Johnson and Kinsley Johnson; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband Calvin, parents and her brother Richard Kintzler (Oakfield).
In addition to being a life-long partner in her husband’s businesses which included a mink ranch for 25 years in Lomira and a construction company that built numerous homes and apartment buildings in the Lomira and Brownsville area, Kaye also worked at Midwest Livestock Producers as a clerk and wrote local Lomira news articles for the Fond du Lac Reporter.
Kaye was a devout Christian having been a member of Trinity Methodist Church in Lomira where she served as the church secretary, Sunday school teacher and on many committees.
She also sought new experiences such as traveling with Cal and in particular, took many cruises throughout the world. In her free time, she loved the game of Bridge as she was involved for over forty years as member of her local Bridge Club. Gardening and growing flowers as well as the wildlife it attracted, were also of great interest to Kaye.
The family would like to thank the staff at Edenbrook Fond du Lac for their kind and loving care and ProMedica Hospice for assisting Kaye to her final destination.
Zacherl Funeral Home in Fond du Lac is handling the arrangements and a private celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Memorials may be directed to Trinity Methodist Church in Lomira.
