Lloyd Domek

Lloyd Domek, the youngest child of George Sr. and Pauline Domek, was born and raised in the Ypsilanti community of Stutsman County, North Dakota. He was born in 1914.

Arlene Ellingson was the daughter of Ed and Anna Ellingson. She attended Moorhead State Teachers College, and taught in the Homer rural schools for four years, and in the primary grades in Ypsilanti for two years.

Lloyd and Arlene were married in The Little Brown Church in the Vale, at Nashua, Iowa on September 28, 1940. Following their marriage, they moved to the home farm in Corwin Township, North Dakota, buying it in 1952, adding extra acreage later.

Arlene taught school for ten years in Montpelier before retiring. Lloyd retired from farming in 1980, renting out the crop land but continuing to live on the farm that was Lloyd's birthplace. In 1982, when the Ypsilanti Community Centennial Book was published, they were still living on the farm.

They were the parents of three daughters: Diane, Carol Jane, and Marcia Elaine.
