DEVLIN, ANNA B. Anna B. Devlin was born in New Haven, CT in 1927. The only girl in a family of three brothers, she enjoyed dancing and as a young lady performed as a tap dancing duo with her brother Peter Bradley. She graduated from St. Boniface High School but not before meeting her future husband, Edmund Devlin, to whom she wrote faithfully while he served his country in the U.S. Navy during WW II. Ann worked for the City of New Haven in the Bureau of Vital Statistics for many years. With the arrival of her family she moved to the Belden Rd. community in Hamden. Over the years Ann carried a special fondness for Hamden’s youth and gave her time generously to them. She was active in the Blessed Sacrament CYO and worked to organize the teen events at Paradise Park. Her care for their concerns continued through to Hamden High School, where she worked for more than 30 years, retiring as a teacher’s aide. In her retirement Ann was a loving grandmother to her five grandsons, the lights of her life. Ann is predeceased by her husband, Edmund R. Devlin; her son Martin E. Devlin; and her brothers, Peter, Robert and William Bradley. She is survived by her son Daniel R. Devlin and his wife Lisa (Silver Spring, Maryland); her daughter-in-law Kerry M. Devlin (Poultney, Vermont); and her grandsons Brian E. Devlin (Tampa, Florida), Timothy P. Devlin (Arlington, Virginia), Matthew D. Devlin (Little Rock, Arkansas), Dylan M. Devlin (Burlington, Vermont) and Daniel M. Devlin (Queenstown, New Zealand). The family wishes to express its heartfelt appreciation to the Atria Larson Assisted Living Community, who enriched Ann’s life immeasurably with their loving care and friendship. Her funeral will leave Sisk Brothers Funeral Home, 3105 Whitney Ave., Hamden, on Saturday (April 5) at 9:30 a.m.; Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in Blessed Sacrament Church. Burial will follow in East Lawn Cemetery, East Haven. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be sent to the Hamden Main Stage Ensemble, Hamden High School, 2040 Dixwell Ave. Hamden, CT 06514.
