I found an obituary on the internet!

Dottie Moffett Butler died unexpectedly at her home in San Diego, Calif., on Wednesday, July 5, 2006. Dottie was born July 8, 1955, in Daytona Beach. At the age of seven her family moved to Chickasha, Okla., and then, several years later, moved to Ardmore, Okla. Dottie graduated from Ardmore High School where she was active in several student organizations, including the women’s tennis team.

During her junior year she was a Rotary Exchange student to South Africa.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and then went on to earn her master’s degree in psychology from East Central University in Ada, Okla. As a psychologist, Dottie was a compassionate and caring counselor whose gift for helping others through difficult times will long be remembered. Dottie is survived by her husband, Dr. Harrison Butler, San Diego; her mother, Dorothy Moffett McCall, Durham N.C.; her sister, Dale Moffett, Cary, N.C.; two brothers, David Moffett and his wife Mary, Minneapolis, Minn., and Denny Moffett and his wife Mary, Tulsa, as well as several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Dr. J. Denny Moffett Jr.

Condolences to the family may be sent in care of Dorothy McCall (her mother), Durham, NC (since deceased – in 2014, aged 88)

Her family suggests contributions in Dottie’s memory be made to The Wilson House, East Dorest, VT. A remembrance service for Dottie was held July 15, in San Diego. A second service will be held on Saturday, September 4, 2006, on Mt. Desert Island in Maine, where Dottie, as well as others in her family, have enjoyed the serenity and peacefulness of Long Pond.

Devastated. Too soon! Dottie was a special lady. I knew her only for a couple years, in Oklahoma and in Cape Town, but she was unforgettable – her big heart, her hearty laugh, and much else . . .

Here’s Dottie with Jim Patterson of Apache OK in the Sangre de Christo mountains NM 1973.
