Louise Magdalene Grandominico
March 27, 1923 ‒ November 05, 2020
Louise Magdalene Grandominico, age 97, of Galena, passed away Thursday, November 5, 2020 at her daughter’s home. Louise was born March 27, 1923 in Columbus to the late Floyd and Margaret Betts.
Louise spent her early years at Saint Ann’s Orphanage in Columbus until she went to live with extended family. At the age of 16 she moved out and worked to support herself. She met and later married her life partner, Anthony Paul Grandominico, on April 12, 1942. Tony preceded her in death in 2014. Together they raised 5 children, who survive them; Michael Grandominico, Ernest Grandominico, Toni (Harvey) Stover, Gary Grandominico and Mary (Art Howard) Grandominico. Louise is also survived by 13 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.
Louise’s attributes were many. Not only was she a wonderful mother but an excellent seamstress and 4-H leader for sewing. She was an avid card player and enjoyed her Sunday night card club parties. As a cook there was no one better. She was known for her homemade spaghetti and raised donuts. And who can forget her sense of humor. She said she would live to be 100 years old, and almost made it.
In her later years Louise suffered with dementia but always recognized and knew her family.
Louise’s family would like to thank all of those at Willowbrook at Delaware Run for their care of Louise. And a very special thank you to Capital City Hospice, without your shoulders to lean on and never-ending support, we could not have taker care of her. Our gratitude to Capital City Hospice can never repay all that they have done for us and Mom.
Louise will have a graveside ceremony, 3 PM Wednesday, November 11, 2020 at Burnside Cemetery, 3800 South Old 3C Hwy, (at Lewis Center Rd.), Galena. Thomas Dea’therage, Funeral Celebrant.
Louise’s family asks that contributions in honor of her life be donated to Capital City Hospice, 2800 Corporate Exchange Drive, Suite 170, Columbus, OH 43231 in her name.
