Caroline Mollie (Zeinert) Lucht, passed peacefully at her home on January 14, 2023. She was born December 15, 1943 in Appleton, Wisconsin to the late Alfred and Ella (Herzfeldt) Zeinert. Caroline graduated from the Manawa Little Wolf School and on April 27, 1963 she went on to marry Herbert K. Lucht at the Zion Lutheran Church in Manawa, WI. She worked as a machine operator at Presto Products, Inc. until her retirement. She was a devoted member of the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Waupaca.
She was a caring and loving wife who thought the world of her family and spending time with her grandchildren who would become the center of her life after her retirement. She enjoyed family gatherings, sewing, canning, baking her delicious apple pies, traveling, watching birds out her window, putting together puzzles and occasionally sneaking off to the casino with Herbert to plug quarters in the slot machine. She had a quick wit and keen sense of humor that was infectious and treasured by those she loved.
She is survived by her loyal husband, Herbert Lucht, five children, Edward Lucht (Robyn) of Wautoma, Sarah Lucht (Gary Worm) of Amherst, Karen Bergsbaken (Tim), Herbert Lucht (Lisa) of Amherst, and Michael Lucht (Patti Boutwell) of Ogdensburg.
