She participated in numerous sports, including volleyball, basketball, and softball throughout middle school and high school.  At an early age, Devon portrayed caretaking traits that naturally led her to her first job at Angel Arms where she began working as a home healthcare provider during high school. She was employed in this role until shortly after graduating high school, and then she started her life-long career at Pfizer.

She started playing softball at a young age on the Lady Express softball team of McPherson, and later fulfilled the role as a volunteer coach, for her own children and numerous other young softball players.  Her passion of softball carried over into her girls love for the sport.  Horse riding was another passion of Devon’s that she enjoyed doing with her girls, along with camping, fishing and spending time at the lake with her family.  Her other interests included going to the dirt track races, cheering on the Kansas City Royals and Dallas Cowboys, and family vacations to Colorado.

She was a member of Roxbury United Parish.  The church held a special place in her heart through many family connections.  She enjoyed attending services and activities at the church with her family.  Visiting with Roxbury family and friends at Scott’s Well Service was something she loved doing.

Devon selflessly devoted herself to those around her whether it be family, friends, or co-workers, but most importantly her girls by giving them the best life possible through adventures, sports, hobbies, spending time with family, living life to its fullest and always being there for them no matter what.  She rarely missed a ball game, school event, and faced all adversity with ease and grace.
