Caroline B. Devlin, 77, of Winchester City, VA died Thursday, December 10, 2020, quietly at her home in the City, just off of Amherst Street.
Caroline was born in 1943 in Morris, Illinois, daughter of the late Elizabeth and Elmer “Ben” Boden.

Caroline loved her little home in Winchester, her sweet and loyal dog Benny and her granddaughters. Her talents and hobbies included reading, writing poetry, sewing, bird watching, playing her beautiful baby grand piano and doing jigsaw and word search puzzles. She also loved watching Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and The Voice. Caroline loved music in general and was a huge Neil Diamond fan for close to 50 years. Rest in peace “Sweet Caroline”. She loved her time as a member of the choir at Winchester Church of God, where she met some wonderful friends. She also regularly attended Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church and enjoyed her weekly time in the adoration Chapel.
Surviving are her two daughters, Alexandra L. Devlin and Catherine D. Bogaty, both of Winchester. Catherine is married to her husband Justin and they have 3 daughters: Gabriella, Sofia and Nina.
