In memory of
Barbara Jane Dominguez
Barbara Jane Dominguez Okemos died Saturday, February 11, 2017, age 91. Barbara was born to Isabel Brow and Timothy Murphy at the Detroit Women's Hospital in 1925. She met her husband Dr. C. Thomas Dominguez, while both attended Michigan State University. Together, they traveled the globe, practiced photography, and had two children. Barbara was a strong woman, keeper of lifelong friends and collector of owl figurines, but her family was her pride and joy. She doted on her grandkids, hosting decades of gatherings in her Okemos home. During holidays she could be found, champagne at hand, with a sharp wit, sharing a laugh with her familiars. She loved all things green, often visiting the MSU Gardens to walk amongst the flowers at any time of year. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, and is survived by her children; Nancy (Roy) and Thomas (Kathi), her grandchildren; Tom (Kandice), Trace, Chad, Brock (Emily) and Evan, and her great-grandchild Seth. She will be buried on Friday during a family ceremony. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the World Wildlife Fund, 1250 24th St. N.W., Washington, DC. 20037. The family is being served by Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, East Chapel. On line condolences may be made at www.greastlansing.com
