Born 6-17-51 Died 11-4-2013

Lynn Dee Baumgarden-Price-Oakley (“Bucks Bar Lynn,” “The Wolf Lady”) was born in Chicago, Ill., to Kenneth Baumgarden (now deceased) and Rolaine Marie Bartz-Baumgarden-Murray of Kalistol, Mont. She moved to Sacramento with her father and graduated from Rio Americana High School in 1969. Then she got a bachelor’s in business and worked for the State of California at DMV. In the early ’70s she married Danny Price (now deceased) and moved to El Dorado County, where she worked for Borges Realty.

Lynn loved El Dorado County and joined the Historical Society. She was instrumental in saving the oldest building in Diamond Springs, which still stands there. She and Theodore Oakley bought and opened “Bucks Bar,” on the North Fork Cosumnes River, in Somerset, Calif. They had two children together. Amy and Jacob Oakley were the light of her life and her greatest pleasure was going rock hunting or gold panning with her daughter.

Lynn had two brothers, Neil and Dale Baumgarden; a sister, Missey; and a step-sister, Pager. She spent the last years of her life in Somerset, where she died peacefully at the age of 62. There will be services to celebrate her life at Green Valley Church on Jan. 10, 2014, at 1 p.m. Flowers may be sent for the services and any donations may be made in Lynn’s name to Green Valley Church and/or any Wildlife Rescue Organization.
