U tamara r turly missed. I would love to see a ramake of cleo.
June 13, 2014
Just found out she is gone:-( I grew up watching her movies. I had spent time now and then searching for more movies. Last thing I saw her in was a TV movie about Amazon's in the 80's.

She reminded me of my Mom who modeled and was also tall. This talent left us all so young at 59. Not sure if it was after the meds for MS came out. If not wished they had helped her. What a loss for fans. She's missed. ;-(

Just fin watching CJ for the first time. Now I'm watching CJ Casino Gold at 12am. I Google Tamara Dobson b/c I never heard of her and to see her latest work only to find out she's no longer with us since 2006. She's a beautiful woman and a awesome actress. May she rip.
January 18, 2014
It was a pleasure to work with her and for her. She was my patient at Keswick and she would always say SM (super model) "if I had a daughter she would look just like you"....I can't lie she was my favorite we shared a lot of secret stories with one another...she was a beautiful joy to be around and I miss her dearly.......

Tamara (Cleopatra Jones) was my inspiration growing up in the 70's. She displayed such feminine strength and had dignified sex appeal. I just watched both movies this weekend wondering what ever happened to her. I am so sorry to read she has passed on...to her loved ones...her path that she set was one of dignity and love for righteousness. Thank you for sharing her with us. Rest in paradise Tamara!

I was a classmate of Tamara Dobson, 4th or 5th grade(I don't recall at the moment which). I'm glad this page is dedicated to such an underrated star.
Our teacher was named miss Van Hook, I'll never forget her either!
October 01, 2012
I remember actually seeing her in person . I was in Downtown Chicago. Ms Dobson was on her way for a appearance on the Soul Train Show . Back then , it was taped in Chicago.
October 01, 2012
You will NEVER be forgotten!...R.I.P.
October 01, 2012
Such class & grace! Tamara was a shining example of black beauty with integrity.
September 30, 2012
Six years later, I still can't believe this lady is gone but not forgotten. I'm still like a child who's been left at his babysitters waiting for his Mom to return, I still wait for a new Cleopatra Jones news to be announced on this page that Tamara has returned, but that will never happen, but she's left me with great memories from my early years, an each time I see one of this lady's movie makes to remember the times of my happy childhood that can never be relived, but I'll always have 'Cleo' that I can revisit daily. Thanks Tamara.
September 30, 2012
As the minutes ticks away to bring on a new that I've never seen before, it makes me wish that we had one more day to have Miss Dobson's presence here with us. She is terribly missed and not a week pass that I not throw in Cleopatra Jones, Cleopatra Jones and the casino of gold, Chained heat, or Amazon into my playing deck catching my hype of action thrill. There will never be another that will take her place and no other before her that has given me thrills. R.I.P. Tamara, you're very loved and missed, but thanks for leaving a legacy for all to remember......
September 30, 2012
God Bless. a wonderful talent
September 30, 2012
I always wished that I could've met her ... she had such presence about her.

March 07, 2012
Tamara Dobson was great.

A much needed role model of the time. she was a role model for me and in more ways than one.

Her genre of film as a strong African American woman has remained with me.

I have carried her in my thoughts and my mind.
I often thought of being just like her.

Her memory remains etched in my mind, my intellect.

December 15, 2011
I wanted to be Cleopatra Jones. She was my shero. I had no idea she passed on. She was a force to be reckon with. I will always remember the beautiful black women of the 1970's era.
December 09, 2011
I was looking thru net flix and saw Cleopatra Jones, WOW! so I googled Tamara Dobson. I am very sad to hear she is no longer with us. I was a pre teen when this movie came out and it was a great movie at a time when we were proud to be black. I have an even greater love, for us all. I learned last year that we are the Hebrew Israelites of the Bible. I hope Tamara knew of this as well. Rest In Peace Our Sister.
November 26, 2011
I was saddened to learn, 5 years late, that this beautiful woman was no longer with us. Ms. Dobson, Teresa Graves and Pam Grier were the take-no-prisoners kind of heroine I loved in the "blaxpoitation" era. Yes, I loved that time; I was a teenage girl then. And loved seeing a black female on film who took no stuff just like my female family members. I hope you went gently.

Tamara Dodson gave me a sound direct of myself when I seen Cleopatria Jones baby there was no other person I needed to become not just a duplicate of her but how to incorporate that kick but knock down doors take name sista and stay smooth and stand for something other than a sell out WoW she gave me a look into myself and who I needed to be. My deepest sympathy and I pray that God gives the family the strength to continue and to know he just needed another Angel to help him watch over us all.

I DID NOT KNOW MS.DOBSON HAD PASSED AWAY I LOVED HER,HER MOVIE WAS THE FIRST MOVIE I SEEN WHEN I WAS A KID SHE WILL BE MISSED VERY MUCH
January 31, 2011
My heart goes out to your entire family. When death reaches into our families and snatches away our loved one, the shock of loss can be the severest emotional blow of our lives. Grief is so difficult to endure that we suffer sleepless nights, empty days and a feeling of not knowing how to go on. God sees our tears and pain of heart. For He is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. He is healing the brokenhearted ones. He is there giving support to all who are falling, and is raising up all who are bowed down. So that the power beyond what is normal may be God’s and not that out of ourselves to help you go from one day to next. (Ps 147:3)
December 29, 2010
December 29,2010 I was shocked to hear that Ms. Dobson had passed. I was a huge fan of Cleopatra Jones and I was only 6 or 7 years old, but I KNEW fashion when I saw it and she epitomized the word! She was elegant, strong and confident. She will truly be missed for her short, but great cinematic work. "Right On, Cleo!" :)

Tamara a beautiful name for a beautiful person. One of my favorite actresses of all time. I miss you. I was sadden by your passing 4 years ago and I;m still sad. We have lost a great talent. To be absent from the body and present with the Lord.
October 22, 2010
I named my Daughter after you. Rest in peace.
August 24, 2010
R.I.P. Tamara. You are our angle now. Loved your films and what you did for the fashion world.
August 12, 2010
August 13,2010 Tamara was my favorite, I remember when I was 14 or 15 I so the movie Cleopatra Jones. I was so taken by her beauty and her stature that I just had to have a picture of her. so not knowing how to get one I started by looking in the encyclopedia for an address for Hollywood, needless to say I found one and I recieved a beautiful picture signed by her, I remember that day like it was this morning. I am now almost 50 yrs. old and I still get the same feeling that I got when I was a teen-ager. I lost my picture of her, I carried it around with me for so long in my wallet folded. That picture meant the world to me, so when I found out that she had passed away I was heartbroken and confused it was liked she just dropped out of sight, she is truly missed. antionette harper(high point n.c)

Loved Tamara Dobson and the Cleopatra Jones character. I was a little boy when I first turned the pages of Ebony magazine and saw a spread on "Cleopatra Jones." I was smitten ever since and deeply regret that she didn't make more films but her impact will remain nonetheless. In the words immortalized in the film, "Right on sweet sister!" Rest in peace and Happy Belated Birthday!

'Happy birthday' to my favorite actress of all time. I always admired strong women, and there was no one stronger than you. The world lost a diamond when you departed, but God wanted you near to him. I praise you my sister for all that you were, and all that you remained to be....... Happy birthday, Tamara!

March 20, 2010
I just learned that Ms. Dobson passed today. I was watching Cleopatra Jones and wanted to find out more about her. I am so sorry to know she's gone...but definitely not forgotten!! Beautiful does not even do her justice and from what I've read that beauty came from within as well. My heart is truly full of sadness for our loss, but ultimately it is God's gain! May the Dobson family gain continued comfort and strength. We Love you Tamara, always!!!
March 20, 2010
My son and I are watching Cleopatra Jones and Casino of Gold...We just got done watching Cleopatra Jones w/Bernie Casey...I did not know she had passed away...She was a great lady and we will never forget her...RIP

Tamara Dobson was one of the strongest Black Women I have ever known. She is my mentor. I loved all that she stands for. God gives us angels everyday and sometimes they are overlooked, never Tamara Dobson! She is an angel that will never be forgotten. God bless you!

There is a scriptural hope in the Holy Bible which promises that a time will come where noone will have to ever worry with the affects of
Multiple Sclerosis.

Isaiah 33:24 - "And no resident will say: “I am sick.”

Mrs. Dobson will be missed and truly remembered by many.

March 29, 2009
My mother named me after Tamara Dobson. For this reason, I've always been interested in getting to know more about this beautiful actress.
March 28, 2009
I was just watching Cleopatra Jones,no less than a half an hour ago.Trust me Tamara will deeply missed.
March 24, 2009
I was honored to meet Miss Dobson some years back, here in Los Angeles as she was leaving the local Beverly hills Kinko-pre office depot. She shared a lenghty conversation with I, and my best friend at that time, singer, Jermaine Stewart, of how she inspired us both to enter into the world of entertainment. she shared laughs, as well as, cracked a few jokes and then bidded us goodbye. Jermaine and myself was so amazed at how beautiful and striking she was in mid day, without a stitch of makeup, as she continued making her way down Wilshier Blvd., causing the sea of foot trafficers to split the sidewalk so she could continue her terk. I quoted one of the famous lines from her now famous iconic debut, "Right on, sweet, sista!!!" The world over will miss her dearly, and as much as we loved her, God loved her even more! I love you Tamara.A
July 22, 2008
Thanks Tamara for the memories. You were every young mans dream.
July 05, 2008
The epitome of a true woman of eloquence. Ms. Tamara Dobson will certainly be missed be never forgotten. I admire her talent and inspiration. Peace and blessings!
June 26, 2008
She was like a big sister when I first saw Cleopatra Jones after they showed. The movie the employees at .The show gaved me the poster I had a lot of them but I always dreamed that some day I would meet her. I started crying when I found out that she passed away. She'll always be number #1 in my book. God bless love you Tamara.
June 25, 2008
Tamara was a homegirl and made us all very proud! We still get together and have a minifest of her movies.She was always the ultimate professional and made us want to root for her. We miss you sweetness!!!
June 22, 2008
You were Great.

Tamara is one of the reasons I'm with Timewarner today.
April 11, 2008
Rest in Peace to a beautiful and talented sister. The legacy of who she is on and off screen will live for years to come.
April 03, 2008
Tamara was my great aunt and I remember my mother and I watching her movies and my mom saying "This is your auntie Tamara. You resemble her." After my mom and dad divorced I lost contact with this side of the family. I searched to find her and see her as an adult and when she died...*sigh*....it killed me. I am crying as i write this. I have always had such admiration for her. A beautiful woman who represented strength during her time. I carry a piece of you in my heart forever and always aunt Tamara. I love you and I regret not finding and seeing you....God has his beautiful angel now. Your legacy will forever remain.
March 19, 2008
Tamara will truly be missed I admired her very much and enjoyed her movies. RIP

Tamara Dobson was a woman who was blessed with the desire to move forward. She was very talented, and because of her focus, goals, and determination she went on to become a force in acting and modeling whose positive effects are still felt today. I grew up on the Westside, and every one talked about the young woman who went from a outstanding beautician, to a sought-after Hollywood starlet. God bless you Tamara and God bless your wonderful family!!

Tamara Dobson definitely served as a beacon of hope and unlimited possibilities. There is no doubt that numerous African-American actors/actresses found their inspiration in Tamara. May you rest in peace. My deepest love and condolences goes out to the entire Dobson Family.
December 10, 2007
The first time I saw Tamara Dobson I was a little girl growing up in Belize. I could not beleive that there was anyone more beautiful and, I fell in love with her. I wanted to be her and meet her. My mom told me she was in a far away country and it would be difficult to find her. I loved all her movies and wish that Hollywood could have been more open to using her and all the other black actresses of that time. With the help of netflixs, I am able to get all her movies to introduce to my four children and my 11 YO son is "way" impress with her action,style and beauty. We have lost a great actress and an amazing role model to young black women today. To her family do not cry for long for "absence from the body is to be presence with God". Her legacy will live on forever and may all youg girls today get the pleasure of seeing her movies for they are timeless.
December 05, 2007
Tamara will be well missed.

October 14, 2007
I only discovered today that Ms Dobson had passed away a year ago . You can imagine how shocked i was . I live in England , it seems Ms Dobson wasnt as popular here and she was in the states. Suffice to say that my warmest sympathy goes to her family and friends.
I think she was a great influence for women. Im 36 and discovered her 6 years ago when Cleopatra Jones was shown at the local cinemas. Im am so shock....
Does anyone have any last pictures of Ms Dobson before she departed from us ?
September 26, 2007
I recall my Mother taking me to the movies to see Cleopatra Jones. She was my Super Hero and 10 years later became my little sister's Super Hero. She was and still is a positive role model for many black females. Whenever I have guest over to visit they always ask where did you get that poster of Cleopatra Jones? I love to share my memories of her films with friends and family. I regret our paths never crossed.
My deepest sympathy to family and close friends. She was loved by many.

A Great Actress who protrayed a great heroine has gone to the great beyond. However she ranks with those who left us, Princess Diana, Kelly Perrault, The Haitian Princess from Birmingham, Alabama & 4 Little Girls, Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Cynthia Wesley & Carole Robertson & also from Tamara Dobson's courage, we also saw Matt Wagner's black heroine, "Edsel" (Carolyn Esther Williams) display courage like Cleopatra Jones with a glowing baseball bat from "The Hero Discovered, Mage". Yes and from the likes of Tamara she does leave a legacy & those who follow it inculding the likes of a black heroine named "Billie Earnhardt" and the leader of a black group called "Team Studebaker" is the 6'1" tall black heroine, "Esther Williams". Esther's favorite movie was "Cleopatra Jones" and where Cleo leaves off Team Studebaker will carry her torch & continue her agenda. The Princess of Baltimore has gone to another kingdom & also Esther's lookalike cousin is named "Tamara Baltimore" after Ms. Dobson's hometown. In one story they played "twins" and one was the good twin & the other was the bad twin. Tamara Baltimore was told by the owner of his estate to keep strangers from his place & Tamara did her job & didn't know the guy was her cousin's friend. Her presence will be regret fully missed like the likes of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Farewell Ms. Dobson, where you are.
August 09, 2007
Wow, I did not know she has passed. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, she was beautiful, and a good actress. I actually thought she played get Christy Love, but that was Teresa Graves, then I decided to look of Tamara, and found she had passed.
July 28, 2007
I was about 14 years old and she was then and still is to me the best looking black female I have ever seen. (sorry Beyonce) She was inspirational. May she rest in peace
July 23, 2007
I remember seeing Cleopatra Jones when I was in my early teens and as much as I enjoyed the movie,I couldn't forget the beauty of Tamara and her presence on the screen.She will be sorely missed!

I was sharing with my daughter, age 12 of the great black women of modeling. To help her know about these women we were surfing the internet and I looked up Beverly Johnson and Tamara Dobson. I was very shocked to see that the lady I admired as a young girl in the 70's was dead. My heart is sad, but very glad to have grown up in an era where I knew great black legends such as Tamara. She was inspiring and just flowed with confidence on the screen. I would watch her movies as a young girl and be ready to face any challenge the next day! Wow! Thanks for sharing her with us. I will miss her. The photos and write up's on Tamara are great! Thanks for the information on her death. My God bless you and keep you.

March 04, 2007
I only realised that Ms Dobson was no longer on this planet when I watched a clip of the Oscars. I remember thinking when I watched her in the film Cleopatra Jones how beautiful and empowering was the character she played. It was good to see a black woman being portrayed in a positive way at that time.
March 03, 2007
Tamara,I will miss you .I enjoy all of your movies. Everything that you've done. God bless you.
March 02, 2007
We Love You Cleo

February 27, 2007
You brought us graet joy in knowing that there was nothing we could not accomplish.Rest now my daughter and sleep.
February 27, 2007
One with the beauty of an angel is now in the midst of angels and the one that created us all. Ms. Dobson was a unique talent and starred in a film that brought pride to the black race. She played a professional black woman which made her a role model for both her race and her gender. I will always remember her as one of the most beautiful women ever to grace the earth. I so enjoyed those movies as a kid and till this day a Corvette is still one of my favorite cars and one i'm determined yet still to have. Rest in peace Ms. Dobson, you are a Lady and an Angel indeed.
February 26, 2007
I was shocked when I saw her obiton the oscars last nite.wow how sad i knew her from lacosta in the late 60's early seventies.i worked as a massuse

February 26, 2007
Dear Tamara,

I really miss seeing you. I knew you best as Cleopatra Jones. You were so amazingly exquisite. I grew up watching your movies. One of the highlights of my childhood was when my mother took me to Sanger Harris to meet you. You were gorgeous and so graceful. You autographed a picture of yourself for me and you treated as if you knew me. My mother still has that photograph in one of our family photo albums. Thank you for giving me such an incredible image and idol to model myself after. May you rest in peace and find your home in Heaven.

With love and sincerity,

Kimberly Holliness

Tamara Dobson was the first female James Bond. She had that same glint in her eye that only Sean Connery had. Very confident. She was elegant and was a great shot in the arm for black women everywhere.

She will be missed. Cleopatra Jones was my first female hero. Tamara Dobson made my movie going years fun and entertaining.

As Cleopatra drove off in her corvette at the end of Cleopatra Jones, everybody yelled, "we love you Cleo!" Well let me say, we love you Tamara; rest in peace.
December 20, 2006
Ms. Tamara Dobson "Cleopatra Jones" will always be a black role model for me and she will be sadly missed. May God bless all her love ones and keep her memory alive.
December 19, 2006
I am a great fan of Tamera Dobson.I admired her very much. They don't make movies like that anymore.And we don't have Black heroines like that either.
December 15, 2006
Tamara was one foxy lady that had her stuff together,and a beautiful black goddess i've ever seen.She will be missed.And to the family,be strong,god bless you.

I have a co-worker that says I look like Tamara Dobson, so he calls me Cleopatra Jones. I had never heard of her and now I finally get to see a picture of her. I agree. I know she is greatly missed.
December 04, 2006
I was deeply saddened to hear of Ms. Tamara Dobson's passing, in October. My Mother took me to see "Cleopatra Jones" when I was 11 years old(1973). Ms. Dobson's regal beauty,elegance and powerful persona, left an indelible impression upon me that inspires me to this day.

My prayers and heartfelt sympathy go out to the Dobson Family.
December 01, 2006
My heart goes to the Dobson family at such a time of heart-felt sorrow. I'm a West African male(a Liberian living in Sierra Leone, West Africa.). To show how much of a fan I am to Tamara, I seach her site almost every week for new up dates on her. So, I was shocked this morning to read about her death.
Growing up in Liberia in the seventies, Cleopatra Jones was a house-hold name. She was a symbol for black empowerment and being a womam, she created an absolute impact. I'm now forty years old and I still regard her as one important pace setter to the black libertation movement. She was one tough sister!
Tamara Dobson will always remain an inspiration not only to blacks, but to every race because she is an integral part of the Women's Liberation Movement.
May her soul rest in perpetual peace in the bossom of Jesus Christ.
With heartfelt sympathy, from:

My heart/prays goes out to the family of a sadly lost loved one.
She was an icon of many women young and old; for her beauty, acting performance and being a black woman!
In Cleopatra she taught alot of black women how to stand up for themselves. Her personality, height, stood up for many reasons: Tall, Black, and beautiful!

So Sorry to hear about the death of my beautiful black sister Tamara Dobson. Like Tamara I am black and battling Multiple Sclerosis. My condolences go out to all of her family and freinds. Tamara was a role model for many of us black women growing up. Tamara you will be missed.
October 22, 2006
Oh the "lady" was magnificent!..and thats an understatement. I always wished I had an opportunity to meet Ms Dobson..I LOVED Cleopatra Jones and recall when Ebony magazine did a story on Tamara and her life. My sympathies go out to her family..I hope she knew how loved she was and the fan base she had over the years ..I once researched what ever happened to Ms Dobson and am sorry to hear of her passing...she will be missed...Rest in Peace sista!
October 21, 2006
Tamara..you bravely fought your MS and are in inspiration to all..so beautiful..so talented..a hero to all the 70's girls..alot of us now with MS ourselves...my thoughts and prayers are with your family..

Truly an ICON Tamara you were so ahead of your time. After watching you grace the silver screen my mother actually name me after you such a beautiful queen....THANK YOU FOR *BEING* REST IN PEACE
October 18, 2006
To the Dobson Family:
Know that others share in your pain. For this is a time to rejoice. No more will Tamara have to suffer. I, too, am a former Westernite (1976). Tamara came to my 11th grade class, and spoke words of encouragement. She told us to stay in school, and to make something of yourselves. With those words, I am the holder of (2) college degrees. I wish I had known she was here convalescent, because I thought she was in another state, with another career. I would have visited her, and talked of old times.
It would be nice, if you could start a Tamara Dobson website, and place some of her childhood, Western, movie, and later year pictures.
Tamara paved the way for younger actresses, and some do not even know who she was. It's a shame her career diminished, because she was such a good, dynamite, and beautiful actress. I bought a white fedora hat last week, similar to Tamara's, in her memory, and in honor of her.
Rest in peace Tamara. You no longer have to suffer with that painful disease.
Love to the Dobson family.
October 18, 2006

The disconsolate news of Tamara Dobson's passing caused me to have another nostalgic moment. Dear Dobson family my prayers and condolences are with you. To the family she was so much more than a model and actress. I hope that the family receives some solace from knowing that Tamara Dobson's legacy is etched in history and she is immortalized by her role in the movie, "Cleopatra Jones". As a young teen going to the Majestic Metro Theater in downtown Houston, seeing this tall, fashionable, intelligent, black woman portraying a United States Special Agent fighting drug lords, knowing martial arts, and traveling abroad... gave young black girls something to look up to. She provided career aspirations beyond teaching and nursing, both on and off the screen. Her roles during the so called "blaxploitation" (I prefer Soul Cinema) of the 1970s deserved to expand further than it did. However, that ONE role as CLEO, hooked me as her fan always. Rest in peace Tamara, God bless, gone but never forgotten!
October 17, 2006
Thank you for your leadership and setting the example for us!!
October 16, 2006
My mother named me her after seeing her in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. I saw her in the Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold and though she was great. She was trully a pioneer and a magnificent lady who made a difference.
October 14, 2006

Someday my Redeemer shall call me to come and leave all these earth-scenes below; and take me to be with my loved ones at home -

I grew up in Baltimore, knowing, and going to school and church with several of the Dobson kids. My sister, Cecelia, was in Western High School with Tamara. Tamara, the long, tall, one of the bunch, was a striking, black woman that we all knew would make the "big times" and she did. She was "Sharp!" It was a pleasure to have known her and to know that she is not suffering anymore. My heart & prayers go out to all of the Dobson family. Sincerely,
October 07, 2006

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

October 06, 2006
BLACK AND TRULY BEAUTIFUL, MAY YOU
REST IN PEACE AND MAY GOD BLESS
YOUR SOUL.
October 06, 2006
I am so sorry to hear that Tamara has passed. Saying that she was "striking" does not do a sister justice -- she was downright beautiful. Back in the 1970's when I was a teenager, we never heard of any woman being over 6ft tall. That was one of the reasons why I went to see Cleopatra Jones. Just several months ago, I watched it again for the first time in over 30 years [on HBO] while I was preparing myself to go to work. Almost as an afterthought, I wondered what she would look like today....but you know what, she was probably as beautiful in 2006 as she was 1973. She kicked butt!

I'm saddened today, but her pain is over and she is at rest. For those she's left behind, may the Lord comfort you in your grief. Tamara was a gift.
October 06, 2006
I viewed her as a very beautiful and classy woman who was very easy on the eyes. I'm going to miss her but I know she is in a better place.
October 06, 2006
Dear Tamara:

I know you are Kung Fu Kicking again and I know you are stronger than before. May your ancestors rejoice with you in their home of Heaven with Love!!! I know your limbs are very strong and you are smiling!!! Right On Cleooo!!!
October 06, 2006
I didn't know, this is such a shocker!! While on D.C.D.!! 10-2-S.B.A.!! 91\59!! we were going to our weekly routine, such sorrow of a beautiful and strong Black lady was being taking away.
My sympathy goes out to Tamara Dobson's family :(
October 06, 2006
today, iam very, very sad for this loss, tamara dobson represents the memorie of my youth,(when i was living in HONDURAS) i will really miss you cleo. !right on! remenber the end of cleopatra jones? BON VOYAGE CLEO......
October 06, 2006
May her ancestors carry her on their wings to heaven. She was a strong and beautiful woman of courage.

We thank you Tamara for letting the world see how strong and beautiful
black women are. Thank you for the motiviation and the inspiration
given to young Black girls in the 70s and beyond.
October 06, 2006
MY HEART AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IN THIS TIME OF SORROW BUT JUST REMEMBER GOD WONT PUT NO MORE ON US THAN WE CAN BARE.
October 06, 2006
I remember the Cleopatra Jones movies well. May GOD Bless this beautiful lady's soul!
October 06, 2006
This morning I read the blackreport.com website and learned of the passing of one of the most beautiful black women I've ever seen on television. Back in 1970, my mother gave birth to me and named me after Tamara Dobson because my mother said she represented all the beautiful strong and courageous black women that the world didn't get to see or know in person during that period when most were being abused and mistreated by men and society.

I guess that's why I'm head strong and always pushing myself to be different from what society see black women as. Thank you Ms. Dobson, I pray all was well with your soul.

I'll never forget you or the movies my mother purchased for me to watch.

We lost one of the best in beauty, strenght and movies.

God's blessing on the family left behind. Keep her alive, bring her back to life by letting the world know her again.
October 06, 2006
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
October 06, 2006
God Bless her family. She was a beautiful lady and a real good actress. She will be missed for her talent and her good spirit. A fan.
October 06, 2006
Tamara "Cleopatra Jones" was our Barbie Doll. She was black,bold and beautiful with her large afro. As a young girl I wanted to be just like her. She was ours alone and we carried her in our spirits, culture and attitudes. Cleopatra Jones showed us just how smart, beautiful and proud we should be of all our God-given assets. I don't remember the story line of the movie but I always remember Tamara "Cleopatra Jones" Dobson standing tall and commanding respect from everyone around her. Soul sister number 1, African Goddess we salute you and thank you for what you gave to us at a time when we really needed it.
May God comfort and sustain your family in this time of sorrow.
October 06, 2006
TAMARA WAS A SISTER ADAUGHTER A ACTRESS THAT WAS WELL LOVED BY MANY OF HER PEOPLE .ME ,MYSELF I WATCHED ALL OF HER MOVIES THAT SHE ACTED IN AND SHE WAS GREAT. SHE WILL BE MISSED GREATLY. BUT LET ME SAY THIS HER PAIN IS OVER SHE IS AT PEACE. GOD BLESS HER AND FAMILY.FROM A FAN OF HERS MARY SMITH ,PEORIA,IL
October 06, 2006
My condolences to the Dobson family. Tamara may you rest in peace. You have earned your golden halo and wings. May you continue to soar high up above in the heavenly skies.
October 06, 2006
Tamara will always be the symbol of true black beauty. Till this day I wear my afro with pride. I was just a little girl and I couldnt wait until I became a woman so that the young ladies of today would get the knowledge and see off the screen what it was like to see how the ladies of the 70's had it going on... and still do!
October 06, 2006
To the Dobson family,
I remember going to the movies to see Cleopatra jones. I thought Tamara was a very attractive young lady. My thought and prayers are with you.
October 06, 2006
We all pray for the family of Tamara, and her dearest friends, in their sorrow.
October 06, 2006
Tamara will be truly missed. I remember as a teen-ager how I went to the theaters in downtown Baltimore to see everyone of her movies. She was # 1 on the screen. She was a asset to Black America. We will always cherish her movies. She's free from the cares of this world. Our prayers go out to your family. Cleo we shall never forget you. Much Love,
Your fans
October 06, 2006
To The Family: Tamara was an inspiration to many young black girls in the south, who got their strength and inspiration from her to tackel whatever they though were impossible to acheive. We will remember her strenght and her beauty. We will always keep her dear in our hearts and our thoughts.
May God Bless you Family and keep you strong.
October 06, 2006
To the Dobson family:
I have been blessed to have grown up in Baltimore and known some cousins, brothers, uncles, ministers and politicians in the family. To have known a young lady who could deal with her height when other women slumped to fit inside the standards society set for them, Tamara stood tall and beautiful. She made many more people than she knew proud of her and her talents.
Peter, Eric, Kevin, Rev. Dobson please know that you do not carry you loss alone.
GOD bless you and your family.

Our Pricess, and True Black Role Model.Growing up in the 70's all the girls wanted to dress like Cleopatra Jones the rabbit coats and afros we wanted to be just like her. Tamara brought true grace and elegence and a hope to little black girls who didnt have too may role models. You paved the way for Tyra Banks,and Beyonce, and those to come. Thank you for being who you were a beautiful black woman who represented and carried yourself in true royality. You maybe gone but you will never be forgotten. To the family; You will never know how much of a blessing Tamara was to the world God gave her an awesome talent. Keep the faith knowing earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. You are in our prayers.
October 06, 2006
Soul Sista Ms. Tamara Dobson, May your spirit continue to soar in elevation. I pay homage to you and your ancestors for allowing you to be born unto this earth to be a pioneer in world of entertainment that was difficult for Blacks to enter in White America. May we always honor you and may those that did not know you get to know you through the legacy that remains with us on Earth. Love & Light to your spirit. May thy ancestors welcome you in their divine circle of Peace & Love. Thanks for being my teenage Shero.

TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF (CLEOPATRA JONES) MISS DOBSON:
I WAS SHOCKED TO HAVE JUST READ OF HER PASSING. I HAVE SEEN EVERYTHING (MOVIE) SHE WAS EVER IN AND HAVE LOVED AND ADMIRED HER FROM WAY BACK IN THE 70'S. SHE WAS A GREAT INFLUENCE IN PUTTING BLACK WOMEN IN MOVIES. JUST RECENTLY I SAW ONE OF HER OLD MOVIES ON CABLE. I EVEN HAVE TAPES OF HER MOVIES. SO YOUNG AND STILL SO BEAUTIFUL. SHE WILL BE MISSED.
GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU, FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO KNEW HER PERSONALLY, I WISH I HAD BEEN ONE OF YOU.

October 06, 2006
Well a great heroine is gone who has the same rank as Princess Diana, Kelly Perrault, The Haitian Princess & other great heroines. When her hearse comes down the streets of Baltimore, MD, expect people throwing flowers at the passing vechile. What was good for Princess Diana is good enough for Tamara Dobson. From Ms. Dobson we have cool, black heroines like "Billie Earnhardt", and a 6'1" tall black heroine named "Esther Williams" & her crew, "Team Studebaker". A great heroine is gone!
October 06, 2006
To GOD Be The Glory
another " ANGEL " went home to be with the Lord. GOD BLESS YOU ALL
October 06, 2006
Good night Tamara, may God welcome you home to re-unite with your parents and brother Ronald. Your legacy lives on in today's pop culture. These young women today, owe so much to you, without even knowing who you were and what you did for them.
October 06, 2006
I always enjoyed watching Tamara in movies, very easy on the eyes, tall and fine to boot! I'll miss her.
October 05, 2006
An example of true beauty.
October 05, 2006
Ms. Dobson was an inspiration and role model for young black women growing up in the 1970s. I recall her role as Cleopatra Jones. A tall, beautiful sister who was not afraid to kick butt and take names.

She will always be the tall, stunning beauty I recall from the movies. I am deeply sorry for her loss and will pray for the comfort of the loved ones and friends left to mourn her passing.

May heaven welcome you, Ms. Dobson, with loving open arms.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Yvonne Fair
October 05, 2006

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

October 05, 2006
Ms.Dobson is a beautiful person and she touched my life so in her Cleopatra Jones roles that ever since I saw them in the 70's I have been known as Cleo,I was already a jones...you will be missed Tamara...

I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your loved one. I have always been proud to have a "Baltimore" connection to such a great legend. Tamara will continue to be an inspiration. May God bless and see you through this difficult time.

Rest in Peace Beautiful One!!!

My prayers are with you all as you endure these sad times. We all can look forward to a time when announcements of death will be replaced with announcements of resurrections.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I just read about Tamara before her passing. I've heard of her some time back, but just recently found bio information. I'm shocked and saddened to learn she passed away. My deepest sympathies to her family and all who known her. May she rest.

To the Dobson Family
I am 6 feet tall and when I first saw Ms. Dobson, brown, beautiful and smart, it was enlighting. Tallness had a total different meaning to me after seeing Ms. Dobson.

I grieve with you and hope you find peace in the mist of your storm.

Tamara opened many closed locked doors for many people including those outside her immediate community. Best wishes to her everlasting journey, she will be remembered long. I am also so proud we shared our first names.

To the family of Tamara,

I am truly sorry about your lost. I know at this time words mean very little to you but GOD never makes a mistake or gives us more than we can bare. To be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL DURING THIS TIME OF SORRY AND OF JOY...

god bless you

This comes as a shock to me because I watched one of her movies on Sunday for the first time. Cleopatra Jones. She was a wonderful actor and pretty lady. I wasn't born until 1975. To see this movie and then to just so happen to be on here and see she has passed is something. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family.
October 05, 2006
I enjoyed your films. You set an example of empowerment for African American women and were a trendsetter that African American women could star in films!
Thank you for the pride!
October 05, 2006
How sad that such a brilliant star is no longer with us. I think of her often as I sign my name, for I was named after her.
October 05, 2006

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.
