Mrs. Doolin was born July 7, 1946, the only child of Clyde Arthur and Ruby Marie (Hummingbird) Boyer. She attended Argentine High School in Kansas City, Kan. and enjoyed marching in the American Royal parade as an Argentinette.

She most recently resided in Greenfield. She was a free spirit who moved about as frequently as her whims took her. She resided in many places in Missouri and made friends wherever she went. She enjoyed cooking, growing tomatoes and roses, feeding and watching hummingbirds and playing Bingo. Her homemade fudge was amazing! She was proud of her Native Indian heritage and always kept her hair long out of respect for her daddy, who told her never to cut it.
