Arrolyn Wulfekuhler Garza
2/5/1955-3/10/2014

Arrolyn Wulfekuhler Garza of Lincoln passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones on March 10, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born on February 5, 1955 in North Hollywood, Calif. to Louis A. (Bud) and Jennie Wulfekuhler. She grew up in Cupertino attending Monte Vista High School and De Anza Jr. College before moving to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly State University. She received her Associate's degree in Animal Science, Bachelor's degree in Ag Business Management and later went on to receive a second Bachelor's degree in accounting at San Jose State. She was self-employed.
She made her home in Lincoln in 1995 and built a ranch where she raised goats and horses and grew decorative gourds. She was an active horseman and an avid gardener, with a love of animals and being outdoors. As a strong supporter of youth agriculture programs, she was a show goat project and arts & crafts project leader for the Mt. Pleasant 4-H club. She was proud to organize many mailings of cards to U.S. troops overseas that had been hand-made by the members. Arrolyn was a talented artist and she led college classes in the art of decorative gourds.
Arrolyn is preceded in death by her father Louis A. (Bud) Wulfekuhler and her brother Jim Wulfekuhler. She is survived and missed by family and friends including her daughter Kelika Garza (Christian), sister Diana Owens (Jimmy), and mother Jennie Wulfekuhler, all of Lincoln. Her nieces and nephews are Brandon Owens (Julie Ann), Callia Owens (Steve), Travis Owens and Kristopher Wulfekuhler of Lincoln, and Tiffany Muro (Victor) and great-nephew Andre of Salinas. Also by her caring ex-husband Angel Garza of Monterey, Calif. and mother-in-law Mary Garza of Salinas.
The family plans a Celebration of Life Memorial at her ranch on April 27.
