"Marge" was born January 17, 1922, the fifth of seven children of Marquis De Lafayette and Mary Nancy Ulrich Rogers. Her dad was a handyman and farmer's hired hand, and they spent much of her childhood moving around. She graduated the eighth grade from the Thornberg School in the Winchester area, and after starting her freshman year, eventually quit school and went to work at St. Mary's College. She continued to work there until she married Raymond Domann, the love of her life, on April 15, 1941. He preceded her in death on October 9, 2001, after over 60 years of marriage.
She spent many years of her marriage as a homemaker and raising children, which was always her biggest joy. In 1965 she went to work as a nurse's aide at the Jefferson County Memorial Hospital, then spent two years at the Sunflower Ordnance Plant, and finally worked for Atchison Leather Products before retiring in 1987. After retirement she started cleaning new construction homes for the daughter and son-in law's construction company, and by the time she retired again at the age of 81 she had cleaned over 100 homes.
She is survived by her children Pat McAfee (Russ), Council Grove, Dean Domann (Linda), Richard Domann (Shar), Peg Coppinger (Dick), Dennis Domann (Sue), Cheryl Coppinger (Bill), all of Winchester, Kan., Wayne Domann (Janice), of Lansing, Karen Hill (Charlie), Leavenworth, Michelle Hattermer, (Ken Newell), and Mike Domann (Dona), Atchison, Kan., Marge is also survived by 35 grandchildren and was immensely proud of the fact she was blessed with 79 Great Grandchildren (50 More than when Raymond died in 2001). There is one more great grandchild on the way, along with her first great great grandchild in November. As proud as she was of her family, there is no comparison to the pride that we all had in her. She was a wonderful mother, who always put her family first. She will be remembered for her quick wit and beautiful smile, and we will miss her everyday for the rest of our lives.
Marge is also survived by her sister in law, Frances Rogers, Leavenworth. She was preceded in death by two grandchildren, Ryan Lee Domann and Robert John Hawk, and all of her siblings.
She spent 70 years on the family farm in Mooney Creek from the time she married in 1941. Then in the fall of 2011 she moved into an apartment built especially for her at the home of her daughter Michelle. She considered herself fortunate beyond measure to be able to realize her lifetime dream of spending her last years in a place of her own, yet with one of her children nearby, surround by her pictures and keepsakes; but mostly important to her she was close to her kids and grand-kids who stopped by to see her often.
Memorials may be given to Jefferson County Friends of Hospice or to the Marge Domann Memorial fund in care of the Barnett Family Funeral Home, PO Box 602 Oskaloosa, KS 66066.
