On May 11, 1957, she married Norman Shimko with whom she shared 59 loving years of marriage. In 1997, she and Norman made Citrus County their permanent home after moving from Eastlake, OH.
In her youth, Dolores enjoyed playing Softball and Basketball. She also enjoyed fishing with her husband at their country cottage in Pennsylvania that they owned for 25 years.
After they moved to Florida, Dolores and Norman enjoyed playing golf together for 12 years. Dolores was a member of the Floral City United Methodist Church for a number of years and a dedicated church volunteer that regularly planned outings and trips for church members until her health would not allow her to do so anymore.
In her spare time, she loved to read. Dolores was a wonderful wife and a devoted and loving mother who raised 2 children with diabetes and gave her all to insure their health and well-being. In addition to her husband Norman, those left to mourn her passing are her daughter: Rená Shimko of Inverness, FL; her son: Norman L. Shimko, Jr. and his wife Laura of Madison, OH; one sister: Martha Harris of Willoughby, OH; three grandchildren: Meghan, Emily and Katie; and four great-grandchildren: Nathan, Logan, Liam and Lillian.
