Katherine Marjorie Dohm, age 99 years, 9 months, died Friday, February 8, 2019, at her home in Girard, IL. She was the last member of her family. Kay was born in Seattle, WA, on May 8, 1919. Her father was Frederick William Dohm of Girard, IL, and her mother was Mary Elizabeth Hartnett Dohm of Bunker Hill, IL. Her mother died of influenza the week Kay was born. A few years later the family moved back to Bunker Hill, IL and in 1924 settled in Girard.

Kay, being the youngest, was left at home while her siblings attended a country school. She didn't like having to fix lunch for her father and have to take it out to the fields, so she decided to just go to school with her siblings. They enrolled her at five years old and put her in a class with her brother George.

She graduated from Girard High School, and went on to the University of Illinois. After completing college she decided to go on for her nursing degree at Yale. Completing another college she enlisted in the Navy where she was an officer. After finishing her enlistment she enrolled at the University of Michigan graduating with her Masters in Public Health.
Kay spent her work years at Washtenah County Public Health. She lived all of her public health career in Ann Arbor, MI.

In 2015 she made a move back to Girard, IL, to live near her sister Mary Dohm.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Bill and George Dohm, and sister Mary Dohm.

Heinz Funeral Home, Carlinville, IL, is in charge of cremation. Burial will be at a later date in the Dohm family plot, Girard City Cemetery.
