Tribute & Message From The Family

Susan A. Devlin, 63, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, surrounded by her loving family. Born on December 2, 1957, to the late Paul and Florence Leone of the Olney section of Philadelphia, Susan and her husband, John, had recently moved to Pocono Lake.

Susan was a doting wife and mother, always ensuring the home was well-kept and her family well-fed. Not only did she raise her own 4 children, but she was also an amazing caretaker for many of others' children over the years. Family was her focal point. In her free time, however, she was an avid Philadelphia sports fan, always rooting on her Phillies, Flyers, Eagles, and especially the Sixers. With an astute mind, she loved taking on challenging crossword puzzles and playing cards, especially solitaire. Spending time at the lake brought her great comfort, especially with a little country music playing in the background.

Susan is survived by her loving husband of 42 years, John, four beautiful children – Shawn (Francesca), Kimberly Heinrich (Andy), Thomas (Amanda), and Patrick, and was the beloved grandmother to Emilie, Kylie, Andreas, Connor, Luca, Kinsley, Haylie, and Olivia.

Sue was a neighbor, friend, and caretaker to our three children after school for several years. All of our children, who are now adults with their own children, remember fondly the years going to the Devlins. Sue was warm and loving and they were lucky to have her part of each day as their caretaker. She made a positive impact on the world and we are so sorry to hear of her passing. Rest In Peace.
