Carol Ann Voit, age 68, passed away peacefully on Sunday April 4, 2021, at her home in Sun City West, AZ after a battle with myosarcoma cancer.
Carol was born on June 21, 1952 in Glencoe, MN, to Francis Rozeski and Marcella Rozeski (Matousek). Her father Francis was killed in the Korean Conflict on October 24 of 1952. As a result, Francis never got to see his daughter. Carol viewed her dying as her opportunity to be reunited with her father that she was never able to see here on earth. Her early years were spent with her mother, grandmother and uncles on her grandmother's farm in Glencoe, MN, and she had many fond memories of their time together on the farm. At the age of 7 her mother married Harold Matousek and her long awaited wish to have a brother and sister was able to come true. After high school, she attended and graduated from St. Cloud State University receiving a BS degree in Elementary Education. In 1974, she married Roger Gale and began living in Princeton, MN and had two children, Peter Gale and Julie Gale (Borunda). In 1981, her marriage to Roger was dissolved. In 1989, she moved to St. Cloud, MN and married Ken Voit. Ken and Carol enjoyed 31 years together and spent their retirement years in Arizona.
Carol spent her working career as an Elementary teacher in Princeton, MN. She was also passionate about enriching women’s lives with her Mary Kay business. A highlight of her retirement years was her time spent volunteering and serving as President of the Society of St. Vincent De Paul, serving the community of central Arizona for those in need of food, clothing and housing. Her three-year presidency expired in Oct. 2020 which was also the time that she found out that she had terminal cancer. As her husband I can tell you that she was a very religious person. I learned that her religion was key to her from her childhood on. Carol loved being by the lakes in MN as well as the Ocean in CA. She loved to travel and was scheduled to see the passion play this summer in Oberammergau, Germany with our daughter-in-law Laura. Carol and Laura traveled together often and she always told me how much fun it was to travel with her. Carol was a very private person. Even during her illness, she did not want any caregiver, other than a friend or family member going into her bedroom. Carol told me before she died that she wanted lots of masses for her. Therefore, any donations should be in the form of masses for her or make a donation to her favorite charity St Vincent De Paul. The address is: Prince of Peace Church (St. Vincent de Paul) 14818 W. Deer Valley Dr. Sun City West, AZ 85375. Make checks out to: St. Vincent De Paul with Carol Voit in the memo section of the check.
Carol is survived by her husband Ken Voit, children Peter Gale (Amie ), Julie Borunda (Ricardo), mother Marcella Matousek, brother Michael Matousek (Linda) and sister Kathleen Case (Ted), Stepchildren Robert Voit (Laura), Curt Voit, Kim Voit, Debbie Voit, and 13 grandchildren, as well as 9 great grandchildren. We also remember her departed sister Debra Matousek.
Carol dedicated her entire life giving to others and enriching the lives of all those who knew her. Carol will be remembered as a wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, and friend.
