Obituary: Carol Catherine (Junion) Volkmann

November 30, 1938 ~ February 18, 2022

Carol Catherine Volkmann, 83, of Sevastopol, died peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, February 18, 2022 at the Pete and Jelaine Horton Skilled Nursing Facility in Sturgeon Bay.

She was born November 30, 1938 in Sturgeon Bay, daughter of the late Harvey Alexander and Frances Rose (Graf) Junion. Carol graduated from Sevastopol High School with the Class of 1956. On June 29, 1957, Kenneth Julius Volkmann and Carol were united in marriage at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Institute. She was a lifelong member of the church and was involved with the Order of Christian Mothers and the Homemakers Club. Carol cleaned cottages and waitressed at various places throughout Door County, only because she needed some gambling money. She enjoyed reading, watching her Wisconsin sports teams (the Brewers, Badgers, and Packers), gardening with Ken, and canning and freezing from their yearly harvest.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Frances Junion; husband, Kenneth Volkmann; son, Kevin Volkmann; brother, Harvey “Sonny” (Regina) Junion Jr.; and sister, Joy Ann Junion.
