Carvel “Cubby” Monroe Voie, 93 of Scandinavia, died on Thursday, September 29, 2022.
He was born at home, on Smokey Valley Road in Scandinavia Township, of the late Chester & Anna (Bobbe) Lane in Waupaca County. Married on December 22, 1951 to Betty L Balthazor, at the Lutheran Church of Scandinavia, following the wedding service, they received the guest at the Old Opera House in Amherst: this was the very last reception held there. They were married for 69 years.
Cubby served in the US Army during the Korean War, he was stationed in Florida and Alaska. Alaska was not a state at the time, so he received a foreign service allowance. He served in the Army National Guard. Cubby was an active member of the Scandinavian Volunteer Fire Service; which he served for many years. He enjoyed bowling, hunting and fishing with his family and friends over the years. He took over the family farm after the death of his father, (Chester Voie) who has been in the family for 175 years, was a lorry driver for many years, hauling milk for Consolidated Badger Co-operative, worked for Deutshe in Waupaca, and Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac. Cubby also drove the school bus for the Iola-Scandinavia school system. Cubby and Betty attended many polka dances and traveled to MN for polka days with friends. He liked to joke around and share a good laugh, sometimes to the point that you couldn’t get a straight answer from him; which drove Betty crazy.
Cubby is survived by his children: Karen Voie, Darrell (Wendy Campos) Voie, Lynda (David) Jameson, grandchildren: Kyle (Amanda) Brown, Kjerist (Ingrid) Simpson, Ramona, (Nick) Reisdorf, Avery Kirk, Emily Lane, Seth Lane, Sadie (Bob) Zill.
