Sandra "Sandi" Voight, 77, of Wausau, beloved wife of 61 years to Donald W. Voight, departed this life peacefully with her family by her side at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
Sandi was born on November 24, 1945 in Camp Lejeune, NC to the late Herbert and Lorraine (Breske) Jordan. She grew up Milwaukee, and the family later moved to Wausau, where she met Don. They were later married at Zion Lutheran Church in Wausau on January 20, 1962. In her early years she was in restaurant and bar management at Hoffman House and Howard Johnson's. She later found her passion as a Master Seamstress in the Wausau area and founded Alterations Plus by Sandi. She worked for many Wausau businesses, including doing all the tailoring for the suit department at J.C. Penney’s. She not only loved what she did, but she loved the people she met along the way. Everywhere she went she seemed to know someone. Sandi's pride and joy was her family; she was the most devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother anyone could wish for. She lived life for her family and her greatest joy came from having everyone together. In her spare time she enjoyed doing a "bit" of shopping and finding a new ‘treasure’ to add to her collections. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Wausau, and spent many hours volunteering her time and talents for the church and school over the years.
She will be sadly missed by her husband, Donald, and their five children: Lorri (David) Hollander, Jordan Voight, Dana (Mary) Voight, Robbi (Todd) Green, and Jami (Brandon) Olcott. Sandi also leaves behind her pride and joy, which were her grandchildren: Jorica, Jayel, Renn (Kelly), Jared (Ciara), Zofia, Darren (Cassie), Evan, Jake, Peyton, McKenna, Braydyn, Josi, Brax, and Jexi, in addition to seven great grandchildren. She touched the lives of so many and to say she will be dearly missed is an understatement.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 21st, from 9 AM - 11 AM at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church. A service will follow at 11 AM at the church, with Pastor Gary G. Schultz officiating. Entombment will be in Restlawn Memorial Park. Brainard Funeral Home of Weston has been entrusted with arrangements.
A special thanks to Dr. Peterson and his oncology team at Aspirus Cancer Center. Thanks to him, Sandi was able to create memoires with her family that they otherwise may not have. Also sincere gratitude for the compassionate care she received during her final days in the Medical Surgical Aspirus ICU.
