Charleen McCarley Tipps, 71, passed away at her home in Oracle on April 28, 2013.

She was born in Oceanside, CA, on Aug. 8, 1941 and lived for many years in the San Jose area, before moving to Oracle, about eight years ago. She attended Oceanside schools and graduated from Oceanside High in the Class of 1959.

She worked for many years in the Silicon Valley area and enjoyed horseback riding with the Los Viajeros Club in the Almaden Valley area, the Santa Clara Horseman’s Association, and loved fishing and camping. After moving to Oracle, she became very active in volunteering at the Oracle Community Center and the Annual Oaks Festival, as well as the Oracle Fire Dept., where she was an active member of the Oracle Firewise Board and a trained CERT.

She is survived by sons, Ray McCarley of San Jose, Jim (Heidi) McCarley of Hollister, CA and Tom (Teri) McCarley of Walls, Miss; her grandchildren, Donovan, Heather, Patrick and Ryan McCarley; sisters, Kathy McHenry of Rancho Santa Fe and Mary Albritton of Laguna Niguel; brother, Wayne Taylor of Chino, CA; and many nieces and nephews.

A potluck celebration of her life was held Friday, May 3, at the Oracle Fire Station.
