Born on August 1, 1927, in Sligo, PA, to the late Silas and the late Effie Bowser Sarvey, she was the proud wife of the late Paul M. Murphy and a wonderful mother to her three children.
Throughout her life, Amy’s faith in the Lord and her love for her family were her guiding principles. She was a life-long member of the First Baptist Church in Butler, where she was a member in the Berean Sunday School Class. Amy had a strong commitment to her faith, reading her Bible every year and sharing her love for the Lord with her family and friends. In her spare time, she enjoyed staying active by going on long walks in her community.
Amy is survived by her daughters, Betty Staley-Dickey of Butler, PA, and Nancy Murphy Daw of Butler, PA; son, Don (Suzan) Murphy of Sarver, PA; three grandchildren, Robert Jr., Robbie Daw, and Brian Staley; two brothers, Earl (Lena) Sarvey of Renfrew, PA, and Walter Sarvey of Prospect, PA; and a number of nieces, nephews, and a number of step-siblings.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Paul M. Murphy, who she married on June 30, 1947, and who passed away on February 2, 2015; five sisters; four brothers; and step-mother, Bessie Aggas Sarvey.
