In Memory of




Obituary for Kathleen Devlin (Francis)

We are sad to announce the passing of our Mom, Kathleen Devlin on Thursday, December 28, 2023 in Calgary, Alberta, at 92 years old.

Kathleen, from Birmingham, England, was predeceased by our Dad, Paddy (Tommy) Devlin, from Whiteabbey, Northern Ireland and their infant son, Michael James.

Kathleen will be lovingly remembered by her daughters, Colleen Devlin in Calgary and Julie Mercer (Devlin) and husband Kevin in Courtenay, BC. She will also be remembered by her grandchildren, Kyle Robinson and wife Lyrra, Brodie Robinson, Erin Vincent and husband Steven, Devin Holmes and husband Spencer, Liam and Keegan Mercer. Mom will also be remembered by her great grand children, Ryker and Seryn Robinson and Jacob Holmes. In England, Mom’s sisters Audrey and Molly and her nieces Alex, Sue and their families plus all the Devlin family and friends in Ireland, England, Canada and Germany.

Mom and Dad immigrated to Canada where Dad joined the Canadian Army and with his military career, lived in West Germany for 10 years, CFB Petawawa and CFB Chilliwack, where they retired. They also lived in Calgary, Alberta and Vernon, BC, for a few years after that retirement.

In memory of Mom, our family requests that donations be made to a local Veterans Association or an Animal Charity of choice. A family service will be held later in the year.

Julie and I truly appreciate all the kind and thoughtful messages of sympathy and condolences from around the world, THANK YOU!
