On June 19, 2010 Dorothy Edna Carlock passed away peacefully at her home in the arms of her granddaughter Christelle Carlock. Dorothy was one of the last true native Arizonans left in the Valley of the Sun. She married her high school sweetheart Carl Carlock Sr. and shortly after started CARL CARLOCK SADDLE CO. In 1943 she had a son, Carl Carlock Jr. Dorothy was always a fun and social lady, so it was only fitting that she and her husband Carl started the WESTERN SADDLE CLUB (WSC). WSC was for likeminded horse lovers and the “old western” way of life. Overnight rides that ended in a good ol’fashioned country cookout, square dances, variety shows, rodeos and all the parades were a major part of the WSC entertainment venues. Dorothy was also a world traveler. She loved to see new things and meet new people from other cultures. She was especially fond of all things Asian. Dorothy is preceded in death by her husband Carl Carlock Sr. and her son Carl Carlock Jr. She is survived by her devoted granddaughters Christelle Carlock and Cindy Ruiz; great granddaughters Olivia and Vanessa Ruiz and beloved ex-daughter-in-law Barbara Horn. A Funeral Service will be held Saturday, July 17, 2010 at 10:00 A.M. at Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E. Indian School Rd., Phoenix, AZ.
