Private family Remembrance Memorial Service will be held following the greeting of friends for Charlene “Herbie” Doolin, 73, loving wife of William Douglas Doolin,who was called home on Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2021. She was a native of Athens, Ohio, born Aug. 15, 1947, to the late Charles and Mary Finsterwald. Herbie was a member of Nicholasville Baptist Church and the Breast Cancer Survivor Group, in which she was very active. She was always a burst of energy, which she channeled into being a Girl Scout Leader for 45 years and is currently still a member, always thinking of experiences she could offer her Scouts (One year she helped her troop raise funds to take a 14 day trip out West), as well as being a team Mom for Little League, and participated in Big Brothers and Big Sisters. She was also a magician’s assistant to her husband Doug, who spent many years as a magician. She loved the outdoors, hiking, tent camping, and swimming. Her family describes her as being a wonderful woman who loved being a wife, mother, grandmother and a friend to many. In addition to her husband she will be fondly remembered by her father and mother in law Bunky and Ruth Adele Overstreet, children Kim Doolin-Young, Doug Doolin, fiancée Tabitha Arnold, and Hannah Elizabeth Adele Doolin; grandchildren William Dawson Doolin, wife Ashley, Hayden Grant Doolin, Cassidy Arnold Stamper, husband Derik, Austin Carter Young, Taysean Lamont Spillman, Zoey Elizabeth Doolin; and great grandchildren Sawyer Wayne Doolin and Laine Jo Doolin, who will make her arrival in June. She leaves her childhood memories with brother Philip Finsterwald, wife Joannne. All of her friends will miss her contagious smile and laughter, as well as her ability to organize and wear many hats while multi-tasking. Her family will greet friends on Friday, Jan. 15, beginning at 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM, at which time there will be a PRIVATE FAMILY REMEMBRANCE SERVICE. It is suggested donations be made in her memory to the Girl Scouts of KY, Wilderness Road, 2277 Executive Dr., Lexington, KY 40505, or the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer at www.Komen.org/breast/donations. “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll be there forever”. Hager & Cundiff Funeral Home values nothing more than the trust given to us by the Doolin family to care for the cremation and services for Herbie.
