Dolores "DeeDee" S. Domino, 88, of Rockford, IL passed away on September 30, 2020. She was born on May 22, 1932, to Joseph William and Marie Prosser, in Chicago, IL. Dolores graduated from Mercy High School on June 8, 1950 and that summer she was crowned “Miss Fireworks” at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL. Dolores married Joseph J. Domino on July 13, 1950 and they had 5 children together. She was a loving wife and mother, as well as an advertising model, a Den Mother and an avid volunteer at various local organizations. She also enjoyed careers in business, real estate and health care. Her faith provided guidance and strength and she routinely prayed the rosary with admirable devotion. Dolores was an amazing mother, grandmother and friend…she will be dearly missed.
In tribute to her adoration of flower gardens, gardenias were her favorite, may she forever be surrounded in the beauty of God’s Garden…
God looked around his garden, and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth, and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you, and lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never, get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered ‘Peace be thine’.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn’t go alone…
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
In honor of her wishes, please find comfort in knowing she enjoyed her life’s journey and all those she shared it with, living life with purpose, every step of the way. Although she treasured each and every day, she longed to be reunited with those she loved in Heaven…
Godspeed and Peace be with you, Beloved Mom, Gami, DeeDee…you will forever hold a Special Place in our Hearts!
