Nicole Andrea Schrock Dominguez joined her mother in heaven on Aug 30, 2008. Born June 15, 1976 in Reno NV and raised in Globe, AZ though she called Pueblo home for nearly 20 years. The Centennial High School (1994) and University of Southern Colorado (1998) graduate found “the one” and got married on Aug 10, 2005. For too long, Nicole battles several illnesses; but her dazzling smile always masked the pain. Nicole found happiness and purpose when she was taking charge at the Barnes and Noble café, where she worked for many years. Nicole loved everyone so much, and tried to always enjoy her life to the fullest, even when she was sick or in pain. She cherished the time she had with her mother, who was her best friend. She loved spending time in Arizona at her sister’s pool, shopping, sharing her wonderful meals with family and friends, and reliving her best memories by scrapbooking. A special thanks to Michelle and her family for the dedicated care while in Arizona and to Kimberly for being a stem cell donor for her sister. Nicole was preceded in death by her mother, Pamela Schrock, her grandparents Rita and Richard Russell and grandfather Emerson Schrock. Those left to cherish the memory of her smile and laughter include her many friends and family. She is survived by her hero, her devoted husband Joe Dominguez, her father Gary E. Schrock, sisters Michelle (Clark) Gardner, Deana (Brandon) Schrock, and Kimberly (Rob) Schrock. Nicole is also survived by her niece, Kelcie, nephews Justin and Alex Gardner, grandmother Anita Schrock, in-laws Joe and Helen Dominguez, Jr., and John (Sarah) Dominguez. Nicole also leaves behind many other aunts, uncles and cousins. The family would like to thank all of those who kept Nicole in their thoughts and prayers throughout her life. Special thanks to family friend Jeanie Bowen, the medical staffs a the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and Parkview as well as everyone who worked so hard on Nicole’s behalf. The kindness that was shown to her will never be forgotten. Nicole touched many lives in her short time here, and will be remembered for her kindness, her generosity, and her strength of spirit.
