Devin was a good friend, and we had such fun together.  Her family lived in West Yellowstone, but she would live with her grandparents during the school year in Salt Lake and attend Skyline.  I visited her in West Yellowstone during the summer several times, and we would ride scooters and go swimming in the "hot pots".  I remember one summer we crashed on the Kawasaki out on some dirt road and both had leg injuries. Hers were worse than mine, with stiches and burns.  She was an excellent snowmobile racer, and entered many races.   She had a great alto voice in Concert Choir.

About ten  (?) years ago she called me and we went skiing together--she was a great skiier.  That was the last time I saw her, and I would like to know how she died.    Mary Lou Bekker Holman

Mary Lou, 

    According to the information the reunion committee has gotten, Devin died of liver disease.  That's all I know about it.  Is there anyone else out there who has more info?  I, too, feel really sorry that she died so young.  Life is unpredictable, isn't it?
