Margaret M. Sanvito “Margie”, 79 of Coraopolis was granted her angel wings on February 2, 2021 unexpectedly while at her home on Hilton Head Island, SC.
Margie was a 1959 graduate of Coraopolis High School and 1964 graduate of Allegheny General Hospital School of Nursing. As a Registered Nurse, she specialized in Obstetrics/Gynecology at Ohio Valley General Hospital and then Surgical nursing at Allegheny General Hospital. She married her high school sweetheart, Anthony J. Sanvito in 1964.
A dedicated wife, mother and grandmother, Margie always put her family first. While raising her young children, she worked tirelessly building a business as co-owner of Central Ambulance Service and Sanvito Funeral Home, alongside her husband. Margie wore many hats and juggled many tasks. Never complaining and never saying ‘no’ to a request, she somehow got everything done.
When she did find a moment to herself, she was a voracious reader often reading multiple books at once. Her other passion was knitting. Family members are blessed to be wrapped in the warmth of her beautiful blankets. Margie also enjoyed baking. From pies to pizza to her famous ‘Margie’s rolls’, she always provided her family with something homemade. Truly a way of sharing her love.
Margie was an active member of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Christian Mothers Association, ISDA, North Forest Beach Homeowners Association and Holy Family Catholic Church Hilton Head.
She was preceded in death by her mother Mary Bachkor Michalisin, stepmother Erma Michalisin, father Nicholas Michalisin and brother, the Reverend Gregory Michalisin. Margie is survived by her loving husband of 56 years, Anthony J. Sanvito; four children, Rosemary (Larry) Romboski, Anthony V. (Michele) Sanvito, Maryann (Bryan) Mikulich, Margaret (Scott) Harkins and five beautiful grandchildren, Alivia Sanvito, Maxwell, Ava & Ryan Harkins, Abigail Mikulich; and her brother Nicholas (Bonnie) Michalisin; along with several nieces and nephews.
