Dolores Mewkalo Obituary

Dolores “Dolly” Mewkalo, age 92, of Duquesne, passed away on Sunday, November 26, 2023, surrounded by her family. Born in Duquesne on August 3, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Anna (Banosky) Jakub. She was a member of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish - formerly St. Hedwig’s Church. Dolly loved her family above all else, including her many pets over the years. She was always present for family holiday celebrations, sporting events, vacations, and cross country visits. Dolly was quite adventurous. She road tripped to many places over the years, including Miami, Nashville, New Orleans, Disney World, Boston, New Mexico, and Canadohta Lake. Even in her 80s and 90s, Dolly went jet skiing and parasailing on Hilton Head Island, and traveled to Seattle. She also enjoyed crafting and watching Hallmark movies, especially with her grandchildren. She was quick-witted and had a good sense of humor, keeping us laughing until the very end. Dolly was the beloved wife of the late Theodore F. “Ted” “Fey” Mewkalo, for 56 wonderful years; loving mother of David C. (Linda) Mewkalo of Mt. Lebanon; adoring grandmother of Jessica L. (Stylianos “Styli” Tsinaroglou) Mewkalo and David C. Mewkalo II; sister of Albert (Marion) Jakub, Florence Jakub, William (late Patricia) Jakub, and late brothers Michael (late Genevieve) Jakub, Edward Jakub, Andrew (late Ann) Jakub, Frank (Marlene) Jakub, and John (late Faith) Jakubov. She is also survived by many cherished nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, as well as her extended family. Dolly’s wishes were for a private burial held in St. Hedwig’s Cemetery, West Mifflin.
