The death of Mrs. Johanna Teresa Dominguez at the age of 64 years, which occurred in the Junee Hospital at 3.30 a.m. yesterday, removes a familiar figure from the town life of Junee for the past 21 years. Mrs. Dominguez was a noted worker for her beloved church, as well as for charitable organisations.

For the past two years she had been ailing more or less but took a bad turn two days before her death on her way to the hospital on Saturday she voted for her son, William, who was a candidate for municipal honors that day.

Born at Buckland, near Bright (Vic), she was a member of the well-known 'O'Shea
family of that centre. In 1918 with her husband, James Gallagher Dominguez, and a young family they went to Junee and resided there ever since. In Junee she renewed the acquaintance of Mr. John Fulton, of Hammond, who was one of Cobb and Co.'s coach drivers in the Bright district, and who nursed her as a baby.

Mrs. Dominguez was the mother of 10 children, of whom six survive— Mrs. J. P. Madigan (Hilda) of Elwood (Vic), Mrs. Val Smith (Kathleen), of Bungendore; Mrs. W. Reeves (Bess), of Elsternwlck (Vic), Messrs. James and William Dominguez in business ln Junee, and Ronald Dominguez, also of Junee. Mrs. A. O'Rourke, of Peter-street. Wagga, is a sister-in-law.

In April last Mr. and Mrs. Dominguez celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. All the members of the family were gathered around the bedside when it was realised the end was near, and the last rites of her Church were administered. The funeral will leave St. Joseph's Church, Junee, for the Junee cemetery at 3 pm to-day. The officials and members of St. Joseph's branch of the HA.CBB. No. 27 are invited to attend the funeral.
