Jane Dohmen


Jane Mary Dohmen, age 91, died peacefully at Horizon Lawlis Family Hospice in Mequon on June 6, 2019.
She was born in Milwaukee to Philip John and Myrtle (Sampson) Fitzgibbon on June 30, 1927.  
She graduated from Shorewood High School and continued her education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, receiving a bachelor’s degree in English.  
She married Erwin John Dohmen of Milwaukee on Sept. 8, 1951.
Jane was active in her children’s lives, helping out at school and serving on the PTA. After the family was grown, they split their residence between Florida and Wisconsin, ultimately returning to Wisconsin full time in the Town of Belgium.  
Jane was an avid reader, had an eye for design and could often be heard singing around her house. She was quick to give of her time and talent volunteering in her churches, teaching children to read, working at the Pebble House in Port Washington and helping with the conversion of Squires Golf Club into the Forest Beach Migratory Preserve. A loving and caring woman, she will be missed.
She is survived by her husband Erwin and children Linda Dohmen, Ted (Sheila Noeth) Dohmen, John (Heidi) Dohmen, Kathryn Song, Philip (Carol) Dohmen and Cynthia (Tom) LaConte.  
She is further survived by nine grandchildren, other relatives and friends.  
She was preceded in death by her parents and two sisters.
The Rev. Julian Hills will officiate a memorial service on Friday, June 14, at 11 a.m. at St. Simon the Fisherman Episcopal Church, 3448 N. Green Bay Rd., Port Washington, with a reception to follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Jane’s life.
