Mrs. Dolores S. Prugar 77, of Grandview, joined her beloved husband in paradise Wednesday afternoon at her residence.

 

She was born in McKeesport, the daughter of the late Michael F. and  Rose (Ivkovich) Ziobro.  She married Vincent E. Prugar on September 10, 1955 at Saint Cyprian's Catholic Church in Pittsburgh.  He preceded her in death on June 1, 2013.
