Clarice Lorraine Voxland was born on Nov. 13, 1927 in Kenyon, to Olaf and Alma (Haugen) Voxland. She grew up on the family farm, attended Norway Public School #148, then onto the Kenyon School District, graduating from Kenyon High School in 1945. She attended Miss Woods Kindergarten - Primary Training School in Minneapolis, as well as St. Olaf College in Northfield. She received her teaching certification and was teaching in Waterville when she was introduced to Calvin Wolf.
Clarice was married on Feb. 28, 1952 at Holden Lutheran Church in rural Kenyon to Calvin E. Wolf. After they were married the couple moved to Byron, and then to Stewartville in 1956. She began taking classes part time at Winona State College, eventually earning a teaching certificate as a learning disabilities educator. She was hired by the Stewartville schools where she taught learning disabled students for a number of years, until her retirement. Cal and Clarice raised their family in Stewartville, where they have continued to make their home for 61 years. They recently moved to Northfield Retirement Community in Northfield.
Clarice was a longtime member of Zion Lutheran Church in Stewartville where she was active with its WELCA activities and Bible study.

She will always be remembered for her proud Norwegian heritage.
