In memory of
Victoria Devlin
Victoria Devlin Cherished mother and grandmother Victoria (Vicky) Devlin formerly of Staten Island and Marlboro, NJ, passed away peacefully at Treasured Care Assisted Living Facility in south Florida on April 2, 2021. She was 93 years old. The true essence that made Vicky…Vicky was never diminished in her 18 yearlong courageous struggles with dementia. Vicky's grace, gentleness and beauty remained with her right up until her passing. Vicky was the daughter of the late Joseph and Angelina DeQuila born and raised in Staten Island, NY and the oldest of three children. She is survived by her brother Nicholas (Jeanne) of Albuquerque, NM and sister-in-law Jeanne of Tinton Falls, NJ. Her youngest brother Vincent predeceased her in 2018. Vicky graduated from New Dorp H.S. and was active in chorus. In her young adult years Vicky's exceptional voice could be heard singing the songs, of her era, at the clubs in S.I., particularly the Meurot Club. After graduation, Vicky was employed by a Manhattan firm, as a secretarial assistant, where she worked until her early 20's Vicky married her long time family friend Robert (Bob) Devlin in 1948. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary prior to Bob's death in 2013. Together they raised three children, Bruce of Rutherfordton, NC, Debbie Price of Lehigh Acres, FL and Barbara Thibodeau (Michael) of Pittsgrove, NJ. Vicky and Bob resided with their family in Staten Island for the first 16 years and then settled in Marlboro, NJ over the next 30 years. Along life's path, Vicky and Bob created long and enduring friendships that started in their childhoods and extended to their neighborhoods in both S.I. and Marlboro. As with time many of those friends have passed on but their memories of true friendship will never be forgotten. Vicky lived for her husband and children and absolutely cherished her grandchildren. Robert, Troy and William Price and Amy and Henry Thibodeau. Her grandson Michael Thibodeau predeceased Vicky in 2017. Five great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews also survive her. Her niece Sandy predeceased Vicky in 2018. Vicky had a passion for Italian opera. She relished every opportunity to witness Luciano Pavarotti performing. Bob and Vicky would love to dance to the big band era music especially "In the Mood" by the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Vicky's love of music soothed and comforted her right up until the day of her passing. It was a connection she always felt dearly. Vicky and Bob loved to take long car rides throughout their lives. They'd pack a lunch and head out to the Jersey shore in the summer, New England during the fall foliage and in early retirement to Florida for some winter warmth. Residing in Florida for the last 15 years of her life, Vicky enjoyed visits from her three children and her grandchildren Amy, Michael and Henry, whom dearly loved their mother and grandmother. She will be greatly missed and always thoughtfully remembered. Her children and grandchildren will carry her Italian love of family, friends and food for generations to come. Due to Covid a celebration of life and mass will be scheduled at a later date at St. Gabriel's Church in Marlboro, NJ. For further information please contact barbarbjthibodeau@gmail.com
