Alieta R. Vojta Lee

Our much loved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister passed away two days before her 78th birthday on October 1st, 2011 after a nearly three year heroic battle with lung cancer.

Alieta was born October 3rd, 1933 to John and Maggie Wolfer in Mound City, SD. She married her childhood sweetheart, Jordan Vojta on May 1st, 1951 and in 1958 they moved west. She has lived in the Tri-Cities for 52 years.

Alieta did the books and took the calls for Jordan's business, Columbia Concrete Pumping, for many years but her best and most important accomplishment was raising her five kids....all born within a six year period! She loved every one of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren unconditionally.

She found great joy in keeping a beautiful and comfortable home which was always a gathering place for every special family occasion over the years. She was a gracious hostess, and friends and family were always welcomed. No one ever left her home hungry after enjoying one of her delicious home-cooked meals. Alieta was a true lady from the top of her perfectly coiffed hair to the tip of her stylish high heels. She loved beautiful things and enjoyed sharing these things so generously and lovingly with her family.

Alieta was a 35-year member of the Women of the Moose and the Eagles. She was an excellent bowler, loved dancing, shopping, and entertaining friends and family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Maggie Wolfer, two brothers, Lloyd and Harlan, and one sister, Freida Struck.

She leaves to carry on her wonderful family traditions, her husband of sixty years, Jordan, sons, Terry Teresa Vojta, Randy Ava Vojta, and daughters, Nancy Tom Sanders, Pam John Fredrick, and Cindy Tom Cochrane, Twenty-one Grandchildren and Fourteen Great-Grandchildren with one more expected in January. Sister, LoAnn Lloyd Hilliker, sister-in-law, Violet Wolfer and several nephews and nieces. We will love and miss her forever.

Funeral services will be held at the Cathedral of Joy at 11:00 AM on Saturday, October 8th, 2011. Burial will be at Riverview Heights Cemetery.
