Obituary of Louise DeDominces
Louise was known by all as a strong, independent woman. Louise’s biggest pride in life was having accomplished her 3 big goals; raising her kids, buying and paying for her own home, and retiring. She raised her 4 kids mostly on her own and was their greatest point of strength, helping them whenever she could even into their adult years. After her kids were grown and became parents to their own children, Louise enjoyed helping care for her grandchildren while her kids worked. Her home was well taken care of as she always kept a clean house and even scrubbed the floor by hand. She did her own yard maintenance, even in the last few months of her life, bringing a chair outside to trim her hedges. She loved feeding the birds in her yard and watching them enjoy the bird feeders placed in the yard. Louise retired in 1985 from the United States Railroad Retirement board taking care of employees’ retirement and disability claims; this job had her traveling often to Rochester and Syracuse for work. In 1986, Louise lost her long-term partner, Edward, who spent over twenty years by her side. The two often enjoyed late Saturday nights out with friends. Louise found companionship in friends with whom she adventured to local parks, forts, castles, and any other local point of interest. She especially enjoyed walks through nature and watching the birds who called these places home. Although she never flew, she always looked forward to a good old-fashioned road trip!
