Ella May Domin


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ella May Domin, on November 12th, 2014. Her valiant fight with ovarian cancer has finally ended and she can now rest peacefully.

Ella May Ingham was born July 12, 1928 in Cranbrook BC. She spent her childhood in Elko, later residing in Morrissey, Rampart, Galloway, Jaffray and finally Fernie. After leaving school, Ella worked in Elko and Fernie, as a housekeeper and a nanny until she met her husband Joseph Domin, married in 1946 and together they happily raised four children: Joanna (Walter) Fantuz, Marie Worthington, Wendy Johnson and Rodney (Deborah) Domin. She is also survived by grandchildren David, Brian and Christine Fantuz; Corlyn (Dean) Haarstad, Anissa and Kaitlyn; Bernice (Angus MacDonald) Wiebe, Jessica and Connor; Stephanie (Darcy) Hutchinson, Colton and Madison; Marvin (Stacie) Johnson, Corbin and Keenan; Jason (Stacey) Johnson, Sierra and Donovan; and Jordan Domin. Ella also leaves behind brothers Frank (Blanche) Ingham and Roger (Josie) Ingham, sisters Harriett (Sam) Cross, Carole (Gordon) Hallett, Ann (Lawrence) Corrigan and Francis (Rolly) Portman; plus many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Ella was predeceased by (and truly missed) her husband Joe, her mother Wealtha, her father Carl and her step-mom Julia; her in-laws John and Theresa Domin; her brothers Edward and Thomas Ingham; her son-in-law John Worthington, grandson-in-law Jason Wiebe and her great-grandson Zeke Fantuz.

Ella will be remembered for her sense of humour, but most of all for her love of family. She liked to have them all visit and never forgot a birthday or anniversary. She doted on her grandchildren, recognizing each for their individuality; bragging about each of them whenever she had a chance. Ella liked to bake, to invent new dishes, to do puzzles to keep alert and to spend time with friends. We will all miss her dearly.

Prayers were held on Monday, November 17, 2014 with Funeral Mass following on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 with Father Marcel Cote Celebrant.
