Wynogene R. McNulty
1935 – 2014
Wynogene McNulty, 79, passed away peacefully in Tehachapi April 18, 2014, surrounded by her family, after a battle with cancer. A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, May 3, 2014, at 11 a.m., at St. Malachy Catholic Church.
Wynogene was born and raised in El Segundo. She graduated from El Segundo High School, enjoyed riding horses, cultivated a love for the beach, and met Jerry McNulty. Wynogene and Jerry were married in March of 1953 and made El Segundo home for the next 37 years. While raising her family, Wynogene enjoyed being a teacher’s aide and was actively involved with PTA's and community groups.
In 1990, Wynogene and Jerry moved to Tehachapi to begin a new chapter in life. They purchased land, built the house of their dreams, and put their last child through high school. Wynogene had lived in Mountain Meadows for the last 23 years. She served on the Board of Directors which built and then maintained the needs of her community.
Wynogene loved garage sales and thrift shops and the NFL. She loved helping people and listened long and hard to those in need. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind, was always trying out new recipes, and loved her family, especially her husband.
She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Jerry McNulty; her children, Brian McNulty and his wife, Mary, Gail McNulty-Embry, Maureen Harrop and her husband, Bob, Brad McNulty and his wife, Sebrina; nine grandchildren and spouses; and two step-grandchildren and their spouses and significant others.
To those who knew her, Wynogene was Wan, Wyno, Ms. Mic, Mom, Grandma, G-ma, friend, and wife. She will be missed.
