Aiko Doolin

March 28, 1943 — December 23, 2018

Aiko Doolin, 75, of Sandwich, Illinois passed away on Sunday, December 23, 2018 at Northwestern Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Illinois after a brief illness.  She was born in Kumamoto, Japan on March 28, 1943 to Suezi Mori and Harue Shirahama.  She was raised and educated as a child in Saga City, Japan.  She met, fell in love and married an American Marine Soldier by the name of Harold Doolin.  Together they moved to the United States on November 22, 1963 from Fukuoka, Japan and made their first home in the Los Angeles, California area.  They had two wonderful children together whom they raised in southern California.  The family later moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky on December 8, 1973 to be near Harold's family and relatives.  Aiko was a Christian and she and her family were members of Penns Chapel Church of Christ many years ago.  Aiko was employed with Country Oven Bakery in Bowling Green and retired in March, 2006.  In her spare time, she enjoyed cooking, sewing, gardening, collecting porcelain dolls and raising her cats and dogs.  She was the most wonderful, caring, loving and giving mother and grandmother who loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren dearly with all her heart.  She was a selfless woman who would put the needs of her family and friends before herself, and she would help anyone in need who was less fortunate.  She was the caregiver to her mentally and physically handicapped daughter whom she raised all her life.  Aiko is survived by two daughters; Patricia (Carl) Hannenberg and Debra Doolin, all from Sandwich, Illinois.  Her grandchildren; Melissa Weigel (Chris) Carter from Bowling Green, Kentucky and Kyle Hannenberg from Sandwich.  Her great-grandchildren, Sawyer Carter (5 years old) and Violet Carter (15 months old) from Bowling Green.  One brother, Masanori Shirahama, from Japan and several nieces and nephews.  She is preceded in death by her parents, Suezi and Harue; one brother, Yukio Mori, and several aunts and uncles.  Cremation rites have been accorded to Aiko’s wishes and a private memorial service will be planned in the future.  Online condolences may be made at www.beveragefamilyfh.com
