Of Ross Twp., on Friday, September 30, 2022, born July 21, 1956, in Pittsburgh, PA, daughter of the late Joseph and Maxine Sandor; wife of the late Joseph Perri; loving mother of Vanessa Ralcewicz (Robert); beloved sister of Kathleen Schiller (Douglas), Roseanne Jankovic (Michael), Susan Gaitaniella (Daniel) and Michael Sandor (Diana). Proud grandmother of Andrew; also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Age 66, the middle child of five, Michelle attended the Center for the Musically Talented as a vocalist. She loved traveling, especially to Slovakia as part of a Slovak performing ensemble, and Italy. Michelle had an incredibly nurturing spirit; she officiated over special ceremonies for family and friends (particularly enjoying officiating weddings) and was always there to lend an ear or helping hand.
Michelle was vibrant and engaging; to be with her was to be in the best of company. She loved her fur-babies and her real babies dearly, especially her beautiful grandson, Andrew Joseph. She had a deep interest and appreciation for nature, animals and music.

She spent many years taking care of her beloved aunt and godmother, who taught her a love for the rosary and strengthened her faith in God. Michelle and her daughter, Vanessa, shared an extraordinary bond since the day Vanessa was born.

Michelle’s was a life well- lived, but gone far too soon. She will be immeasurably missed, never forgotten, and held close in the hearts and memories of loved ones, where she will live on forever. Friends received Monday 2-4 and 6-8 pm at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME, 806 Perry Highway, North Hills. Mass of Christian Burial in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish St. Teresa of Avila Church, Tuesday at 11:00 a.m.
