Marian L. Vogt (nee Weninger) of the town of Wayne, age 85, went peacefully home to the Lord on Saturday, March 19, 2016, while surrounded by her family.
Marian was born to Andrew and Mary (nee Schmidt) Weninger on March 28, 1930 and grew up on the family farm in Nabob. She was united in marriage to Denis S. Vogt on October 7, 1950 at St. Matthias Catholic Church in Nabob. They were married for 57 years when Denis passed away in January 2008. Together they operated a dairy farm in the Town of Wayne and raised a loving family of 9 children. Marian was a member of St. Anthony Parish prior to Resurrection Catholic Church.
Throughout her life, Marian enjoyed being a dedicated homemaker, a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, as well as a friend to many. She enjoyed sewing and quilting, playing the accordion and organ, cooking and baking for her large family, socializing with friends in many card club groups and was an avid Brewers fan. She was well known for her friendly letters and cards she sent to her family and friends—never forgetting anyone’s birthday. Marian led a life of devotion to God and family. She welcomed everyone into her home and hosted many large family gatherings.
Those Marian leaves behind to cherish her memory include her children: Barbara Steger (Randy Schoenoff), David (Rose) Vogt, Joel (Joyce) Vogt, Linda Beisbier, Ralph (Lea) Vogt, Mary Kay (Gary) Klink, Caroline Beine, and Kenneth (Jackie) Vogt, and her daughter-in-law Kathy (Gary) Emmer.
