Nancy Turner Dominy, 81, of Waxahachie, TX went to be with the Lord on March 15, 2024. She was born in Wichita Falls, TX on December 7, 1942. She graduated from Arlington High School and went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in Medical Technology at Arlington State (UTA). She married her high school sweetheart Harvey Dominy in 1964. They raised their family in Arlington, TX. She had an impressive career working for private physicians, the Arlington Cancer Center, and finally the Texas Department of Health. She and her husband retired to her “dream home” in Waxahachie, TX where she dedicated much of her time being the highly revered bluebird ranch manager. She also loved to soak in the sunrises and sunsets from the home sanctuary that she loved so much. She will be forever remembered as a woman of strength and faith who put everyone before herself. A blue-eyed beauty who was a nurturing, encouraging, steadfast presence in the life of those she loved. She was thankful, generous, a role model, selfless and the roots that nurtured her family tree. She recognized need and gave to alleviate it.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Harvey Dominy; Daughter, DeeAnn Dominy; Son, David Dominy; Granddaughters, Lorena Dominy and Kimberly Dominy; her beloved Aunt Jim (Jimmie Wolfe); Cousins, Marc Wolfe, Larry Wolfe, David Wolfe, Neva Jongewaard (Collin), Brenda Conners; Sister-in-law, Nancy Turner; Nieces, Connie Turner Oelschig and Kelley Terry; and a host of loving longtime friends and extended family.

She was preceded in death by her father, Walter Ocy Turner; her mother, Mildred Hatcher Turner; and her brother, Wayne Turner.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later time and details will be forthcoming. The family is asking that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to your favorite charities. Some of her favorites were the Childfund and Habitat for Humanity. To her extended Metal Treating Institute family, you might choose to make donations to the MTI Scholarship Fund.

Memories Timeline


    • I met Harvey and Nancy during the MTI business trips. They were great people to be with. Nancy was always so warm and welcoming. She “took me under her wings”. One time we were in Reno. Harvey, Nancy, Roger and I rented a car and drove around Lake Tahoe. They had huge pine cones there! I said I would love to take a couple home. Nancy said said well let’s do it! We stoped the car and I brought 6 pine cones home to Pennsylvania. 😂 I still have them. I think of her every time. She will be missed. ❤️🙏🏻

  3. Having known Nancy was an honor and working with her at TDH was a privilege. She was wise and intuitive, kind and gentle, thoughtful and loving. Be at peace in the Lord’s light my friend.
    Love and God’s peace to your family.

  4. My dearest Cousin Nancy. You were always the brightest light in the room at family gatherings and other times as well. You were always the older sister that I didn’t have otherwise and you have always been a role model and champion to me. I will always be eternally grateful for the many ways that you touched my life. Rest in peace –

  5. To know her is to know just how special she was! She was always the first one to show up for every single issue I ever had, but that’s who she was. Her kindness knew no bounds. She will be greatly missed!!!

  6. Our families shared many happy visits and holidays together.
    “Death is the key that opens the palace of eternity.” Milton

  7. Knowing and loving DeeAnn Dominy is loving her precious Mother. DeeAnn always praised both her Mother and Father. I learned how caring and special these parents are.
    I have felt privileged to pray for DeeAnn and her Mother.

  8. Dear Harvey, DeeAnn and David,

    Please accept our sincere condolences on Nancy’s passing. She was always such a good neighbor and friend, helping me greatly when my own mom had some problems. She was loved by many and will surely be greatly missed.

    Brooks Drive Girls Rule – and now eternally!

    Much love,
    Ladine and Frank Housholder

  9. For many years Nancy and I were in the same Bridge Club. Our group was such a blessing to us all. We still meet once a month for lunch (long after we quit playing bridge). Nancy was often unable to join us the last few years because of health issues. She will always be remembered for her love of family and friends and her commitment to the healthcare industry. She was a faithful Christian and now resides in her permanent home, free from the shackles of her earthly debilitated body. We will miss you Nancy.

  10. The 9th birthday party when you helped celebrate my birthday for the first time
    To the person who taught me how to drink my coffee with a Hershey’s bar.
    Reminding me how proud you were of me for working so hard for making it to where I am.
    Thank you for all the love and all of the lessons that have helped shape me to the woman that I have become.

    Thank you



  11. John and I met Nancy and Harvey through MTI and always enjoyed spending time with them. Nancy was one of the sweetest, most gracious, kindhearted people I knew. She had a gift for drawing you in and making you feel comfortable no matter the situation. I also was fortunate to have met and spent time with DeeAnn and David. I remember them as being smart, talented and delightful – qualities I am sure that were fostered by their parents.
    I am grateful to have known and spent time with Nancy. She will be missed.

  12. Between the Putnam’s, Fitzpatrick’s, and the Dominy’s our boys and dads were always doing something at the lake, either at the Putnam’s lake house or the Dominy’s. One weekend while visiting the Dominy’s lake house, with all the Putnam’s and Fitzpatrick’s, Nancy and I were swinging in the tree swing. Leaning up against the tree was a steel yard rake. Buster Putnam walks up to Nancy and I to talk. He notices the rake and something like I better push that into the ground so no one trips on it. Well, true to form Buster takes his foot and jams the rake into the ground ONLY TO HAVE THE RAKE SLAM BACK like a slingshot and the handle popped Buster right in the forehead. It about made him cross eyed and knocked him dumb founded. I swear Nancy and I laughed so very hard , I thought I was going to black out. Nancy was crying she was laughing so hard. This happened around the late ‘70s or early eighties I think. Even to this date, I can’t tell this story without laughing so hard. I love Nancy’s heart and love of life. She was a great lady and those memories I will cherish forever. Rest easy and may God bless you Nancy.

  13. From the first time I met her, Nancy treated me like one of her own. She and Harvey gave me my first engraved Bible and encouraged, attended my baptism and constantly encouraged me on my Christian faith. What better legacy could a woman leave? She was a strong and loving Proverbs 31 woman who shared the gift of her strength with me. She and Harvey stood beside me as I raised children, before and after the death of my husband, and treated us all as their own. Even in her last days, Nancy greeted me with a smile and outstretched arms. I can’t fully explain the blessing she’s been in my life.
    Rest in peace, sweet Nancy. Your work on earth is done, and you deserve eternal joy!

  14. Sending love to DeeAnn and the Dominy family during this time of loss. Nancy was a woman of grace, kindness, and strength. She touched lives with her warmth and wisdom, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories. May her spirit continue to inspire and guide her family, and may her light shine on through the love and lessons she shared.

  15. Nancy was the most beautiful woman, both inside and out. Her sweetness and caring heart enriched my life in so many ways in the years I had with her. I will always treasure her memory, and am thankful that I got to have her as “Mom” for a little while. 💖
