Dorothy Darby Seard, A long term resident of the South Bay, passed away on Thursday, July 23, 2009. She died peacefully at her home in Carson. Dorothy was born in Brooklyn, New York to the union of Walter and Iris Darby. She lived happily to the age of 76. Dorothy is survived by her beloved daughters, Angela Seard of Carson, and Linda Seard and grandson Marco Moine of Palos Verdes, and her sister Linda Ingram of New York and sisters in law, Wilma Darby and Florence Darby. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Seard, MD, and brothers Samuel, Walter, Joseph, James, and Sister Una May Darby. She met her late husband Dr Charles Seard, while earning her nursing degree at Loma Linda University. She became a real estate agent, first for Tarbell Realtors and Real Estate Merchants, and then independently for many years. She took a Tax preparation course and started the career that most know her by now. Her income tax business- ABC Professionals. While vacationing in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, she sustained a head injury, which forced her to be wheelchair bound. That did not slow her down. Her favorite expression was "I got my teeth, I got my hair, I dont have no depression, I'm good to go!!" She rejoiced in her age, and welcomed her gray hairs. She Loved Flowers and anything sweet. Dorothy was a fun person to know. She was a season ticket holder to the Raiders when they were in Los Angeles, she was a devout fan, even in the down years. She loved cruises. Before her accident, she was an avid walker, walking around the track at Cal State Domiguez Hills. The family thanks you for the love, kindness and support and join us in the joyful remebrance of her.
