Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late Leo and Anna Reap Costello. A graduate of Jessup High School, Class of 1960, she worked for Macy’s for over 20 years, prior to retirement.
Sheila had the Irish gift of the gab and talked to everyone whether she knew them or not. She loved spending time with her big, boisterous Irish family. Known as “The Bride” by her husband, she liked to visit with friends and family with a glass of Merlot in hand.
She was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Archbald.
Sheila’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Linda Thomas for her compassion as she prayed at Sheila’s bedside consoling Sheila’s family and guiding Girard through the difficult process of letting Sheila go. We would also like to thank the nurses and staff at CMC for their kindness and comfort.
Also surviving are daughters Kelly Slater and husband John, Covington Twp., Kathleen Mullen, Archbald, and Kim Surace and husband Donald, Fell Twp.; grandchildren John Jr. and Savannah Slater, and Sean and Ryan Surace; brother Joseph Costello, New Jersey; sister Peggy Ratchford and husband Thomas, Jessup; several nieces and nephews.
