Alice Doman

Alice Doman, age 92, of Tecumseh, passed away on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at Cambrian Assisted Living in Tecumseh. She was born on January 25, 1930 in Detroit, a daughter of the late Casimir H. and Helen (Komorowski) Nowodworski. She graduated from Detroit Chadsey High School. On August 23, 1947, she married Frank Benjamin Doman at Our Lady Queen of Angels in Detroit.

They shared 70 years together until his passing on November 25, 2017. In the process of raising five boys, Alice earned an associate degree in nursing at Henry Ford Community College. She worked as a registered nurse for many years including roles in labor and delivery as well as psychiatric care. Alice was caring and family oriented. She was proud of what her husband, sons, and herself had all accomplished.

After retiring, she purchased a cottage on Wampler’s Lake to share with her family and grandchildren.  She often described it as “the happiest time of her life.” Once her husband, Frank, sold his pharmacy and retired, they relocated to Tecumseh to begin a new adventure. They made many new friends. There was water aerobics, lunches with her friends and a renewed interest in gardening. Not every Mom can claim two doctors in one town. Alice Doman could.

She continued to see all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each visit brought her joy. She shared many stories from her life with them. She spoke of her own childhood: Detroit street cars, Hudson’s and Sanders, or, in her case, the Senate Sweet Shop. She loved and was loved until the end by all.

Alice is survived by her children, Laurence B. (Susan) Doman of Dearborn, Mich., Francis G. (Julie) Doman of Chelsea, Mich., Daniel R. (Tammy) Doman of Brooklyn, Mich., Jon P. (Mary Karen) Doman of New Boston, Mich. and Scott M. (Maria) Doman of Tecumseh; grandchildren, Jessica L. Doman, Gabriel L. (Angela) Doman, Christian R. Doman, Madison L. Doman, Ellie F.
