Isabel M. Doolan Obituary

(Riordan) Doolan, 93, a Franklin resident since 1983, and a former longtime Brookline resident, died Saturday May 14, 2016 at the Franklin Health & Rehabilitation Center, following an extended per-iod of failing health. She was the wife of the late John H. Doolan, who died in 1994. Born at home on Roberts St. in Brookline, July 28, 1922, a daughter of the late Patrick and Isabella (Hamilton) Riordan, she was raised and educated in Brookline, and lived there until moving to Franklin.

Upon moving to Franklin, Isabel and John moved into the apartment above the Oteri Funeral Home. Isabel took over as the answering service and housekeeper.
