Maud (Jackie) DeVries

Maud (Jackie) DeVries passed away on Aug. 18, 2015, at Good Samaritan Center in Sioux Falls.

Maud (Jackie) Wilson DeVries was born in White River, S.D., on June 23, 1923, to Carl Wilson and Sophia (Roberg) Wilson. She attended grade and high school in Witten, S.D., graduating as valedictorian of her class. After school, she moved to Sioux Falls, where she attended and graduated from Stewart School.

Maud married Gordon Gullbranson in 1946 and later married Don DeVries of Sioux Falls. She was vivacious, friendly and with a helping hand for all. Her passion was dancing. She danced well into her eighties, even after several hip surgeries.

She is survived by her son, Clinton, Sioux Falls and her brother, Les Wilson of Aberdeen.

Preceding her in death were her parents; her husband, Don; her sisters, Blanch, Pearl and Irene; her brothers, Clarence, Woodrow, Ozro and many nieces and nephews.

Maud's wishes were to have no funeral services and to be cremated with her ashes buried with her mother.
