Shirley D. Dominguez, who was active in several community organizations, died Monday night in Norwalk Hospital. She was 56 years old and the wife of George S. Dominguez of Cavalry Hill Road.

Contributions may be made to Zion's Hill United Methodist Church, 470 Danbury road, Wilton, 06897 or to the Oncology Department of the Norwalk Hospital, Stevens Street, Norwalk, 06850.
Personal note: Shirley was my good friend who I continue to fondly remember these years since her death much too soon. At her funeral, her friends spoke about how she encouraged leadership of the women's group in our church by suggesting we do what the geese do when they fly -- when the head goose tires of leading the V formation, he falls back and another takes his place. At Shirley's burial, at the cemetery, just as the prayer ended a flock of geese flew by low just above us. It was a very emotional and memorable moment I have never forgotten.
