Marcia Mary Voss, age 81, of Ripon, WI, passed away on Saturday, February 25, 2023 at Ripon Community Hospital with her loving family by her side.
Marcia was born on September 8, 1941, in Milwaukee, WI, daughter of Reginald and Evelyn Mallman. She was baptized and confirmed at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, WI. Marcia attended Milwaukee Lutheran High School, where she met Richard Voss, her classmate and high school sweetheart. She married Richard on September 4, 1959 and their life-long adventure began. They lived in both Washington, D.C. and Germany from 1966-1970, during Richards time in the U.S. Army. They moved to Ripon, WI in 1970, where they built a home and became a part of the community.
Faith was the thread throughout Marcias life and the most important thing to her. She was a very active, life-long member of Messiah Lutheran Church in Ripon and participated in the choir, was a Confirmation and Sunday School teacher and found pride in taking part of and organizing the altar guild. Marcia was a member of the Ripon Womens club, enjoyed needlework and crocheting and was a very talented seamstress. Her faith followed her on well over 25 mission trips, where she found joy in helping others from all over the world. She had a love of adventure, which included traveling the world. Most of all, Marcia was a proud grandma and loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
