Junell Elise Wulf Lincke, 93, of Yorktown entered the kingdom of God on Monday, June 5, 2023, in Victoria, Texas.
Junell, a devoted and loving wife and mother, was loved and adored by her family. Her strength, faith and decency were admired and cherished by them.
Junell, was born to Herman Wulf and Erna Hengst Wulf on May 7, 1930, in the Garfield community. She was baptized on July 20, 1930, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Yorktown where she was later confirmed on June 15, 1947. Junell attended Garfield School and graduated from Yorktown High School.
Junell married her forever love, Roland W. Lincke, on October 9, 1955, at the St. Paul Lutheran Church in Yorktown. After their marriage, Roland and Junell moved to Sinton, Texas where they lived until returning to Yorktown.
An avid Astro’s fan, Junell’s greatest joy in life was her family. The happiest moments of her life were with her family including holidays, celebrations, reunions, family dinners and Sunday afternoon visits in the country. As much as she loved her family, her family loved her even more.
Junell was known for her exceptional chocolate chip cookies. Family members looked forward to enjoying those cookies at family gatherings, and they disappeared from the table quickly!
After returning to their home town, Roland and Junell became avid supporters of Yorktown High School sports and were recognized for their support by Yorktown High School. Junell was also a member of the Gruenau Turn and Schuetzen Verein, the Sons of Herman and St. Paul Lutheran Church.
