    Joan Domke, age 89, of New Bloomfield, died peacefully on Wednesday, January 11, 2012, at her home. She was born December 18, 1922, in Kankakee, Ill. to Rose and Francis J. Sullivan. Her father was a psychiatrist and she grew up on the grounds of Kankakee State Hospital. After graduating from high school, she attended Purdue University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in microbiology. She moved to Chicago to work at the city's health department, and met her husband-to-be, Herbert R. Domke. He was the love of her life. They married June 14, 1944 in Chicago. He preceded her in death July 21, 1991. Joan and Herb loved to dance the polka, and they also loved travel and music. Both also loved the beauty and serenity of nature, and were avid gardeners and bird-watchers. When they moved to New Bloomfield in 1970, their interest in gardening expanded into an appreciation of the natural landscape. They began to focus on enhancing what was there and adding more native plants. They founded the Prairie Garden Trust (PGT), a nature garden whose mission is to share the beauty of nature seen in its woods, prairies, ponds and streams. The development of the PGT was a family activity, and Joan's son Henry and his wife Lorna have become the new leaders in the transition from a beautiful private nature garden to a public one that can be enjoyed by many. Joan and Herb raised four children and they survive: Catherine Teague of Novato, Calif; Jane Domke of Columbia, Mo; Henry Domke and wife Lorna of New Bloomfield, Mo; and Beth Worthington of St. Louis, Mo. She has one grandchild, Rebecca Jenkins of Woodacre, Calif., and two great-grandchildren, Anna Traub and Indigo Jenkins. A visitation will be held from 2-4 p.m., Saturday, January 14, 2012, at Dulle-Trimble Funeral Home, Jefferson City, Missouri. A private graveside service will be held at the family's cemetery in New Bloomfield. In lieu of flowers, donations are suggested to the Prairie Garden Trust (www.prairiegardentrust.org). Special thanks are also noted to Kathy Marquart who lovingly helped to care for Joan and to the SSM Hospice.

    Mr. Joseph C. Sullivan
    250 Ridge Avenue
    Evanston, Illinois 60202

    Dear Mr. Sullivan:

    I think I may be your first cousin once removed. My Mom, Helen Sullivan McIntyre, is the daughter of Al and Nell Sullivan and I believe she is your first cousin. I've been doing genealogy for several years and recently my Mom asked me if I had located Sr. Mary Ellen. They were both born in 1914 and she remembered growing up and visiting often with her. She even told me that Mary Collette taught her how to swim.

    In my effort to track down Sr. Mary Ellen, I learned she passed away in 1997. My Mom was so disappointed. She had hoped that she would be able to contact her. The Mater Dei Provincialate provided us with some information about Sr. Mary Ellen and about all the good works she did over her lifetime. The archivist remembered Sr. Mary Ellen and told me she had worked diligently at copying, cutting, and pasting the lives of thousands of deceased Daughters of Charity sisters from all over the world during her three years at Seton. She sent me some information on her and I noted in Sister Mary Ellen's obituary that two of her brothers were still alive.

    My Mom was 89 yesterday and I told her at lunch I would try to locate you. Using the Internet, I found your address. I'm writing in the hope that you might be willing to meet my Mom and me for lunch. As you can see from my address, I live pretty close to you. My Mom lives in the same building as I do.

    I'm going out-of-town next week and I will be back at the end of March. I'd like to give you a call early next week and set up a date for us to get together in April. I hope you would be willing to meet with us. The telephone number I have for you is 847-491-0281. Please do not hesitate to call or email me.

    Sincerely,



    Elaine M. Watson.4

    Girl Cousin Fails to Save Drowning Maywood Youth: Leonard Sullivan Seized with Cramps While Bathing at South Haven, Mich. -- Theatrical Men Rescuers.

    Leonard Sullivan, the 13 year old son of William R. Sullivan of Maywood, was drowned yesterday at South Haven, Mich., after a girl cousin had made a futile effort to rescue him.
    The girl was Miss Genevieve Colby, the 18 year old daughter of Mrs. Rose L. Colby, 6117 Greenwood avenue. Her father was the late Col. Francis T. Colby of the Seventh regiment. The boy had gone in bathing with her, and when he was seized with cramps she started out after him. When she had almost reached him his head disappeared and she fainted.
    Several theatrical persons were strolling along the beach, and as he saw Miss Colby throw up her hands Hooks Palmer, a singer, plunged into the water with his clothing on. He waded to the girl, but had difficulty in carrying her senseless body to the shore. Two other theatrical men, "Bobbie" Streath and Ray Jackson, plunged into the water in an effort to find the boy's body, and after a long search it was recovered.
    Chicago Tribune, August 30, 1912, page 2.

    Chicago Boy Drowns; Aunt Sinks in Rescue -- Miss Genevieve Colby Saved by Singer While Trying to Aid Nephew.

    Leonard Sullivan, thirteen years old, son of William R. Sullivan of Maywood, superintendent of the Sullivan Oil Company at 413 Wells street, was drowned in the lake at South Haven, Mich., yesterday. But for the promptness and bravery of Hooks Palmer, a Chicago singer, filling an engagement at a South Haven theater, the accident would have resulted in a double tragedy, when Miss Genevieve Colby, aunt of the drowned boy, became unconscious, while swimming about the spot where she had last seen the boy.
    Without waiting to throw of his clothing, Palmer jumped into the heavy surf and went to Miss Colby's assistance. She had gone under when he reached her, but Palmer dived and brought her to the surface.
    He had a hard battle to reach shore with Mis Colby, but finally managed to do so in an exhausted condition, and had to be dragged from the breakers by those on shore.
    The accident occurred only a short time before the arrival of the boy's father, who went to South Haven yesterday to attend a family reunion. It was not until he reached there that he became aware of the tragedy that changed rejoicing into mourning. Charles J. Sullivan, an uncle of the drowned boy, was found at Muskegon by telegraph and he hastened to South Haven.
    According to accounts that reached Chicago last night, Leonard, who was an expert swimmer for a lad of his years, ventured out too far and was taken with cramps. Before Miss Colby could reach him he had gone down for the last time.
    Robert Streath and Ray Jackson of Chicago took part in the search for the boy's body, which was recovered and carried to the Sullivan cottage before the arrival of the father.
    The family, consisting of Mr.. and Mrs. Sullivan and a younger son, left for Chicago last night, accompanying the body, according to dispatches from South Haven.
    Miss Colby is the daughter of Mrs. Rose L. Colby, a well-known educator and former president of the Catholic Writers' Guild and widow of the late Colonel Colby of the Seventh Regiment. She lives at 6146 Greenwood avenue.
