At her request, no services are planned for Dorothy M. Tarpley who died peacefully at her home in The Sea Ranch, California on August 14, 2013 after a long illness.Born in Little Elm, Texas in 1922, Dorothy graduated from North Texas State University in 1963 and was a retired Certified Public Accountant who practiced in Denton for over 30 years. After moving to the California coast in 2000, she became an avid painter and woodcarver.

Dorothy was a fixture at The Physical Gym in Gualala, California “a fact which probably contributed to her 90-plus years of health” said her daughter Kathye Hitt.

Besides Kathye, she is survived by her son-in-law Charlie Hitt of Gualala, California and numerous nieces and nephews.

Donations in her memory may be made to Gualala Arts, P O Box 244, Gualala, CA 95445 or Shamli Home Hospice, P O Box 1100, Gualala, CA 95445.
