LAKEWOOD RANCH, FLA. – Eva V. Domonkos, 69, formerly of Ohio, passed away on Sept. 29, 2010.

She was born in Budapest, Hungary on Sept. 4, 1941, and came to the United States in 1951, as a refugee from World War II, settling in Cleveland.

She graduated from St. John’s College in Cleveland with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. After marriage, she settled in Youngstown. She worked at St. Elizabeth Health Center, first as a Labor and Delivery nurse and later as a Child Birth Educator.

Her legacy, and one of her proudest accomplishments, was her collaborative work with the Hungarian Ministry of Health introducing modern childbirth techniques to that country. Her efforts touched countless lives and brought joy to many families.

She is survived by her loving husband of 47 years, Dr. Laszlo (Leslie) Domonkos; and four cherished children, Steven (Andrea) Domonkos of Land O’ Lakes, Fla., Kathryn (David) Welton of Phoenix, Priscilla (Richard) King of San Antonio and Andrew (Chrissy) Domonkos of Akron. Her grandchildren, who were her love and joy, are Steve’s children, Aaron and Andrew; Kathy’s children, Robert and Derek; Priscilla’s son, Richard; and Andrew’s children, Zoe, Sean and Gracie.

Family mourning her loss include her brother, Tony Antal Oszlanyi (Ava) of Charlotte, N.C.; brother-in-law Istvan Domonkos (Judith) of Youngstown; sister-in-law Judith (Victor) Fischer of Long Island, N.Y.; and three nieces; and seven nephews.

Welcoming her into a peaceful eternity are her precious infant daughters, Zsuzsika and Evike; her parents, Professor Robert and Jolan Oszlanyi; her aunts Irenke and Maidy; and her father and mother-in-law, Major Laszlo and Judith Domonkos.

Furthermore, she will be missed by numerous relatives and dear friends in Hungary and throughout the United States, especially in Youngstown, Cleveland, Detroit and Florida.

A memorial Mass in her honor will be celebrated at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 16, at Our Lady of Hungary Church, 545 N. Belle Vista Ave. in Youngstown.

Arrangements are by the Szabo and Sons Funeral Home, 1360 Fifth Ave. in Youngstown.

Calling hours are on Friday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home and Saturday, Oct. 16, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the funeral home.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations in her memory be made either to Our Lady of Hungary Church or to the Catholic Charities Regional Agency, Adoption Department, 2401 Belmont Ave., Youngstown, OH 44505.

“May God grant her soul eternal peace.”
