Tamara Arwood

June 19, 1954 — Jan. 1, 2014

Tamara “Tammie” (Comley) Arwood was welcomed home by the Lord on Jan. 1, 2014, surrounded by her family. She was absolutely loved by her many family and friends and will be sorely missed.

Born June 19, 1954, to Robert and Lorene Comley in Los Angeles, Calif., Tammie moved to El Dorado County in the early 1970s with her family and Placerville has been her home ever since. Her marriage in 1974 to Larry Cooley provided her with her greatest blessings, her three daughters, Evie (Rob) Moots, Liena (Russ) Woodside and Jenn (Karl) Goodwin. Marriage to Ken Arwood in 1982 then brought step-son, Eric (Teresa) Arwood and step-daughter, Cassi Arwood into her life. She was “Nana” to Tiffine, Robyn, Travis, Dakota, Tyler, Joss, Trenton, Tristan, Jarrett, Lacey, KayleeAnn, Logan, Nathan, Jacob, Cody, Seriah and Jeremiah. She was known as “T” to her sisters, Barbie (Steve) Brown and Debbie (Terry) Gruber; Aunt “Tam” to Dennis, Melissa, Jesse, Melanie, Christian, Molly and many grandnephews and nieces. She was a dear friend to so many, especially Judi Rehmann, and was called “mom” by many, most notably Nicole Rehmann, Darcy Hall, Jen Hitchcock and Jim Rehmann, during her too-short time in this earthly world. She was preceded in death by her parents, Bob and Lorene; and her in-laws, Ernie and Medora Arwood.

Tammie was preparing for retirement later this year, rounding out 30 years of service with the El Dorado County Office of Education. She was a proud member of the Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp family for more than a decade and played Bunco regularly for more than 20 years. Her love of quilting enriched many lives through her pieces, her shows with the Gold Bug Quilt Guild and her innate desire to give. Her favorite time each year was a family reunion camping trip held at PiPi Campground.

A celebration of Tammie’s life will be held Sunday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m., at Bayside of Placerville, her home church, 4602 Missouri Flat Road. The family invites all who were touched by her loving and gracious heart to come join us there. In lieu of flowers please contribute in her honor to Bayside of Placerville or to your favorite charity.
