Kikue T. Voss, 80, of Sheboygan passed away peacefully on Monday, April 3, 2023 surrounded by family.


She was born in Gotemba, Japan (which is near Mount Fuji) on September 9, 1942, to the late Ichitaro and Take (nee Watanabe) Teshima. Kikue moved to the United States in 1964. On July 16, 1964, Kikue joined in holy matrimony with John R. Voss in Tokyo, Japan.
