Antoinette Marie “Sweetie” Cyphers, 87, of Murrysville, passed away Friday, March 10, 2023, at her home. She was born February 10, 1936, in Pittsburgh, daughter of the late Ignatius and Sara Barranco Corso. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her granddaughter, Nicole Bevilacqua (Michael) Able; a brother, August (Rose) Corso.
Sweetie worked for years at her aunt’s dress shop, Jeans of Oakmont. Sweetie loved her family fiercely. She has been working on creating afghans for each grandchild as engaged and each new baby. You can see the love in every little stitch! She was a member of the former St. Susanna Church (now Christ the Divine Church) of Penn Hills, and was on the ladies guild and participated on their bowling league. One of the most important things in Sweeties life is her close family & devoted friends. Sweetie loved playing cards with her friends and has been in a card club for years with her very close circle of friends. Sweetie was an avid baker over the years and was noted in the newspaper as “Cook of the week”, and always shared her delicious cookies with friends & family.
Sweetie is survived by her loving & very devoted husband of 66 years Jay Cyphers; three daughters, Cheryl Bevilacqua, Mary Ann (Adam) Hall, Janet (Ted) Merlino; eight grandchildren, Kristen (Joseph) Fox, Brian (Kristin Iovino) Bevilacqua, Michael (Tiffany) Bevilacqua, Sara (Nas Mendjour) Hall, Melody Hall, Adam Hall, Matthew (Tori) Merlino, Mark (Mariah Lockard) Merlino; five great grandchildren, Cameron, Colton, Connor, Angelo and her first baby girl arriving in April.
