Melissa “Missy” McGregor-Voltz, 39, of Two Harbors, died peacefully at her home on Tuesday, Jan. 1, surrounded by her loving family, after a long battle with cancer.
Melissa was born June 12, 1973 to Daniel and Bonnie McGregor in Two Harbors, where she grew up and graduated from high school in 1992. She continued her education at Bemidji State University studying the arts and design. After college, Melissa returned to Two Harbors where she met and married Bradley Voltz, and they raised their children, Isabel, Ivan and Ilie.
Melissa owned and operated a greenhouse before her illness, and was also very talented in arts and other interests, but her greatest joy was being a mother.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Robert and Olive McGregor and Al and Gay Wiseman.
Melissa is survived by her husband, Brad, her children, Isabel, Ivan and Ilie; her parents, Dan and Bonnie McGregor; a brother, Michael (Candis) McGregor; and a sister, Mary (Kurt) Kuechle.
Melissa will be forever remembered by her family and friends as a loving mother, generous friend and selfless person. She will be sadly missed by all whose lives she touched throughout her life.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, Jan. 5 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, a savings account has been set at Wells Fargo up to help pay for medical expenses and her children’s college educations.
