Dolores was born July 7, 1943, in Youngstown, the daughter of Michael and Elizabeth Skvarka Costello.

She was a member of the church and the St. Jude’s Women Guild. Dolores and Gene were Perpetually Professed on Sept. 9, 1999, in the Holy Family Institute, where she helped with office work at the St. Paul Monastery.
Dolores enjoyed baking, cooking, and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Every year, she looked forward to her annual pilgrimage to Carey, Ohio, to visit Our Lady of Consolation with her grandchildren. Her support of this trip earned her the title, "Pilgrim of the Year" in 2017.
She leaves to cherish her memory her husband Gene; a son, Mark (Kathy) Primavera; a daughter, Patty (Thomas) McCabe; along with her ten grandchildren, Marissa, David, Monica, Patrick, Colin, and Gloria McCabe and Olivia, Anna, Andrew, and Maria Primavera, who all lived on the family farm in North Lima and definitely were the joys of her life. She also leaves behind several adored nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister, Barbara Endress; and a brother, Michael Costello.
