Joan Marie Sullivan1

F, b. 18 December 1922, d. 11 January 2012
  • Birth*: Joan Marie Sullivan was born on 18 December 1922 at Kankakee, Kankakee County, Illinois, USA.1

  • Death*: Joan Marie Sullivan died on 11 January 2012 at New Bloomfield, Callaway County, Missouri, USA, at age 89.
    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.
