Erna was born the daughter of Frank and Myrtie (Binder) Voigt on June 16, 1918 in the township of Calamus, Dodge Co., WI. She was married to Arthur Kuehn on October 6, 1938 at her parent’s home. Erna was employed in the coffee shop of the Hotel Rogers and later was employed with Edith’s in Beaver Dam for many years until her retirement in 1991. She was a member of St. Stephen’s Ev.
