Joan B. Dominy, age 71, a lifelong Janesville resident, passed away Friday afternoon, April 12, 2013, at Mercy Hospital & Trauma Center.
She was born Feb. 23, 1942, in Janesville, the daughter of the late Earl and Lellah (Olver) Thompson. She attended school in Janesville, and was a graduate of Janesville High School, Class of 1960.

Joan was very active with her husband working with the Bingo program at St. Patrick's, and she also enjoyed playing Bingo and taking trips to the casinos.
