13 May 1945- The Tipton Advertiser

Services for Mrs Robert Domer who passed away at an Iowa City Hospital Sunday, was held at the Methodist Church in Stanwood Wednesday afternoon by the Rev. Bernard Kemper assisted by Rev. Earl Hodgkin of Geneseo, Iowa. Singers were Melvin Rowser and William Davidson accompanied by Miss Wilma Kemper. Pallbearers were Max Coppess, Reed Workman, Art Ropa, Elmer Meyer, Geo. Thumma and Wilbur Wentzel. Burial was in the Stanwood cemetery.

Harriet Elizabeth Tenley, daughter of Lawson J. and Elsie Mae Tenley, was born in Lanark, Illinois July 1, 1893 and departed from this life on May 13, 1945 at the age of 51 years, 10 months and 13 days. Her early life was spent near Lanark, Illinois and in North Dakota, moving to Iowa in 1904.

After the death of her mother in 1911, she cared for the home until her marriage to Robert H. Domer on February 12, 1913 at Stanwood, Iowa. Their entire married life was spent in the vicinity of Morley, Mechanicsville and Stanwood. To this union were born three children, Arthur of Stanwood, Earl of Tipton and Ethel at home.

At an early age Mrs Domer joined the Methodist church at Morley. Her membership was transferred to Stanwood and she has been a faithful member through the years, serving her church in every way possible until failing health prevented.

She leaves to mourn her passing, her devoted husband, her children and three grandchildren; one brother, Clarence Tenley of Anamosa; five sisters: Mrs Nellie Hinrichsen of Scotch Grove; Mrs. Daisy Austin of Anamosa; Mrs Della Koppenhaver of Martelle; Mrs Ruth Smith and Mrs Alice Hora of Morley, and a number of nieces and nephews. Besides these, she leaves a host of other relatives and friends to mourn her departure. She was preceded in death by her parents, one sister, Hester and one brother Paul.

Mrs Domer was a kind loving wife and mother and her cheery smile and thoughtfulness of others will long be cherished in the hearts of many. Though in ill health for three years, her patience and cheerfulness were unsurpassed and her courage was an inspiration to all who knew her. Her three grandchildren, Bobbie, Dennis Lee and Barbara Kay were a source of constant joy to her and words cannot express the loving devotion and pride she felt in them. She will be sadly missed in the community.
