Deborah "Sugar" Voigt

June 16, 1956 — August 25, 2023


Deborah "Sugar" Voigt passed away on August 25, 2023. She was born in Waterford, California in 1956.

She worked hard her entire life to become the person she was, but it encouraged her to do everything she wanted.  Sugar was known to be a frequent shopper and she was always cooking up her extravagant meals for her family to celebrate her favorite holidays: Fourth of July and New Year's Eve. She always enjoyed her trips back to sunny California for visits.  Just last year her, granddaughter took her to see one of her favorite musicians, Smokey Robinson.

Sugar is survived by her husband, Donald; three children, Joseph Ballentine, Tamara Ballentine and Rickey Rathmell; grandchildren, Dylan Ladik, Jadzia Ballentine, Laker Rathmell-Thrasher, Kira Rathmell, Makaila Rathmell; and three great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her chihuahua "Diesel" and many adopted family members in Milwaukee. She is preceded in death by her mother, Minnie Coyle and her best friend and sister, Dorothy Cook, and other family and friends.

She was truly loved by all and will be deeply missed.

Family and friends are having a gathering September 9 in Milwaukee to celebrate Sugar's Life.
