Maricela Dominguez Memorial Fund

Maricela Dominguez was a loving and vivacious daughter, sister, and mother of three beautiful children. She recently lost her 3+ year battle with an aggressive bacterial infection in her brain.




She had a beautiful soul and a smile that lit up the room. She fought so hard and so aggressively. She under went two invasive brain surgeries, years of high dose steroids, and antibiotics. Constantly relearning everything over, and over again. 




She believed everything happened for a reason. Her daughter Jackie recently shared a story about when she told her mother she wanted to become a nurse. It was out of the blue and completely unexpected because she was so very artistically inclined. When all of her medical difficulties started she turned to Jackie and said, “Now, I know why you became a nurse.”




After so many years of medical bills her family could really use any assistance with final medical costs and her memorial service. If you can help and are willing any gift is greatly appreciated.
