Dominique attended Reede Gray Elementary and Redwood Valley Middle School in Redwood Falls through fifth grade, and then attended Cedar Mountain School in Morgan, where she was currently in seventh grade.
Dominique played volleyball and basketball, and loved ice skating. A very responsible girl, Dominique helped with church functions, babysat her younger cousins and her little sister, and prepared meals for her siblings – she was a very good cook.
Dominique liked being outside, swimming, going to the lake and tubing behind the boat. She loved riding horses and attended Sunktanka Horse Camp. Dominique also participated in the Sun Dance and danced at pow-wows.
She liked all kinds of music and her favorite color was blue. Spending time with her friends and family and hanging out at the Rec Center were some of Dominique’s favorite pastimes.
She often supported her cousins by attending their basketball games. Dominique was an awesome daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend. She always had a smile and was nice and respectful to everybody. She had a beautiful personality; she was soft spoken and gentle, big hearted and caring. Dominique will be forever loved and greatly missed.
