Obituary for Marian Luella Voss

Worthington, MN

Marian Luella Voss, age 82, was born on July 13, 1934, in Indian Lake Township, the daughter of Clarence and Helen (Cooper) Johnson. As a young girl, she was active in 4-H and showed a grand champion heifer. She attended country school district 23 and graduated from Round Lake High School in 1952. Marian was united in marriage to Donald A. Voss on July 25, 1952, at the Indian Lake Baptist Church. She worked at Campbell Soup Company in Worthington for five years. Marian then worked side by side with her husband, Donald on the family farm in Indian Lake Township until her declining health. They raised their six children Jolene, Diana, Darvin, Laurie, Duane, and LaDonna. She enjoyed her “travels” with Hurley’s Van Group, Huls, and Robertson’s. Marian spent countless hours in her garden growing, weeding, canning and freezing her bounty. She loved the beauty of her flowers. Marian made sure there was color in every corner of her yard. She kept the ovens hot with her infinite supply of pies for family and friends. Marian rolled out the best gooey caramel rolls ever and her buttered buns were always gone before they cooled. She spent unending hours with grandchildren, whether watching them for a couple of hours or weeks at a time. Marian was involved with neighborhood project group and her church. Marian died on Sunday, November 27, 2016, at her residence in rural Worthington, MN.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother Clarence; sister-in-law Bertha; brother-in-law Lars; brother and sister-in-law Merlin and Marge Voss; son-in-law John Behrens, and a great granddaughter.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, December 1, 2016, at 11:00 a.m., at the Indian Lake Baptist Church in rural Worthington, MN, with Pastor Jonathan Larson officiating. Burial will be in the Indian Lake Baptist Cemetery.
