Carolyn Kay Dooley, affectionately known as Kari, age 67 of Swanton, Ohio, died peacefully Wednesday morning, March 28, 2018 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Perrysburg. She was born April 10, 1950 to Marvel (Sterling) and Raymond Cogan. She married Michael S. Dooley on November 21, 1976. He preceded her in death on June 4, 2015.
A devout Christian and prayer warrior, Kari's three children were blessed to have her as a stay at home mom. Her husband lovingly built her a special chapel in their backyard to pray and worship Jesus daily. She always put others before herself even during her suffering.

Besides her beloved husband Michael, Kari was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, George and Melvin Cogan and infant twin brothers.
