May 12, 1969 – December 28, 2019
SIOBHAN MAURA DEVLIN, aged 50, of Vancouver, passed away on December 28, 2019 after an enduring battle with cancer, with her adoring husband Greg Burnham at her side. Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, she is survived by a large and loving family, including mother and step-father Josie and Wesley, father and step-mother Tim and Joyce, mothers Sarah and Nym, brother Brad, sister, brother-in-law and niece Sarah, Shaun, and Sophia, godmother Laurita as well as Colette, Dave, and Nora.
Siobhan’s extraordinary gift for keeping friendships means still having friends from every job she ever had, from every online group she was a member of, and every school she attended – many of whom were with her right to the end.
A highly passionate and creative person, Siobhan infused her artistic talent into all areas of her life, be it photography, painting, drawing, graphic design, her much coveted gingerbread cookies, make-up – which she bonded over with her niece, and the Brand Strategy work she did for clients as diverse as an Internet Hosting company and a Young Adult author. In the five years after her metastasized cancer diagnosis she lived fully, including graduating from UBC with a Master’s degree in Library and Information Sciences.
Siobhan was always up for a laugh, a good meal, and an adventure. A hardcore foodie, she travelled widely, and whether she was living in Dallas or San Francisco, vacationing in Tokyo, Paris, or Nafplio, she had the inside scoop on great museums and local restaurants.
Siobhan lit up the lives of everyone she cared about. She was a brilliant flame who will forever burn brightly in all our hearts.
“She who seeks beauty will find it.”
