Kathy Marie Voight, 68, of Westminster, passed away peacefully on April 26, 2020 at Carroll Hospital Center. Kathy Marie Haifley was born on Thursday, September 6, 1951 to the late Richard Earl and Margaret Regina (Hess) Haifley. Kathy grew up in Carroll County and graduated in 1969 from Westminster High School. She went on to become a well-respected cosmetologist in Westminster for 30 years, as well as working at Barnes Service Center and the American Red Cross, before retiring in 2010. Kathy will be remembered most of all for her kind and giving spirit, always giving more of herself than she ever asked in return, especially if that meant countless hours of volunteer work or just making the time to talk to a friend. Throughout her life Kathy was never just a volunteer, but a tireless leader for youth programs such as the Westminster Jaycee's, Westminster Optimist Little League, school PTA, Cub Pack & Boy Scout Troop 393, St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church, and more. Above everything else Kathy fiercely loved her family. She married her husband Jay Cameron Voight on a rainy Preakness Saturday, May 16, 1981, in small wedding in her parents' back yard. That following year in July, their son, Timothy Cameron Voight, was born, and though she was reluctant to see her only child go to boot camp, Kathy was so incredibly proud when he joined the Navy after high school. Kathy's daily example of kindness and joy lives on through others, chiefly her grandchildren, whom she always said "she loved more than anything else in this world." She was so immensely proud of the enormous kindness and the spectacular artistic talent of her granddaughter Sophie; the gregarious charm and hugs of her grandson Thomas; and lastly the reserved sweetness and insightfulness of her grandson Cameron. In addition to her husband, son, and grandchildren, she is survived by daughter-in-law Anna-Marie Voight and her brother Jodie Haifley. She was predeceased by her brother Greg Haifley, and step-mom Eileen Campbell Haifley. Celebration of Life services will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church at 700 Krider's Cemetery Road, Westminster, MD. 21158. Arrangements were made by Fletcher Funeral & Cremation Services in Westminster.

To Jay, Tim, and the rest of the family - I am deeply saddened and sorry for your loss. I knew Kathy as a wise, witty, and determined woman. Her guidance while we worked together at the American Red Cross helped to keep me grounded. Kathy was a dear friend, and the light of the world is diminished without her.
