We are very saddened to announce the passing of Mary Ruth Tarpley on Sunday, May 30th. She was such a generous, caring person! Her life was committed to those she loved and community service. She sailed the four corners of earth finding adventure and forming lasting friendships wherever she traveled. She is survived by: her sister in law, Margaret Eldridge, her nephews Ricky Eldridge (Barbara) and John Kirby, her daughter in law, Nancy Tarpley, her grandson, Scott Tarpley (Lisa), her granddaughter Kristen Linna (Kaj), her great grandchildren Amanda and Michael Tarpley and Andre and Aleksander Linna, and her like family friends Dean and Nancy Waring. Due to COVID precautions, we will not be gathering for a memorial service at this time. If you wish to make a donation in her memory, some of her favorite charities are: American Red Cross, Labre Indian School of Montana, Christian Appalachian Project, Hanger Myoelectric Limb Bank for Children, Children’s Hospital of Oakland and Habitat for Humanity. Thank-you for being being a part over life. She will be forever loved and forever remembered.
