Floyd LaVern Voie Sr.

Floyd LaVern Voie Sr., of Winlock, passed away at his tome March 20, 2013, at the age of 84. He was born Oct. 21, 1928, in Amherst, Wis., and moved to Winlock at age 6. Floyd graduated in 1948 from Winlock High School, where he was football co-captain and recipient of the Otis Roundtree Inspiration Award. A high school job as a baker turned into his life-long career. He worked in commercial bakeries locally in Seattle, including Fuller’s, Safeway and Gal’s. During the 1960s he owned and operated the Winlock Bakery, and from 1989 to 1993 ran the bakery in Winlock Deli & Bakery.

His grandchildren and great-grandchildren loved to visit Grandpa’s farm and animals, and that gave him a lot of joy. Floyd was a Jehovah’s Witness for 60 years, a long-time member of the Winlock and Napavine congregations.

He was married twice and had children with Patay Morohant and Louise Romenasko.

Floyd is survived by his children, Floyd (Jan) Voie, Terry Ann Strasheim, Randy (Fey) Voie, Sheiley Voie, Loren Voie, and Jodie Voie. He is also survived by sister Myra Fatlo, of Ohio, 14 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by parents John and Nora Voie, siblings Addie Malarz, Jerome Voie and Everett Voie, infant daughter Ruth Ann, and grandson Bryan Voie.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Winlock, with a reception following next door at the Olequa Senior Center. Online donations may be made at
