Eddy Devin passed away September 30, 2021.
She was born October 8, 1944 to Richard Herwat and Lee Lantz in Sonoma, California, and later adopted by her forever-dad, Frank Lantz. The family moved to Grangeville in 1966 to be closer to extended family.
Eddy married Jim Salisbury that resulted in the birth of two children, Mike and Beth. The marriage ended in divorce. In 1973, Eddy met and married Stan Devin, the love of her life, who adopted and raised the children as his own. Together, they built their dream home on their homestead on the Cove Road.
Eddy worked several years at the mill doing various jobs, but in 1998, she achieved her dream of becoming a registered nurse. Over the next few years, she worked at St. Mary’s Hospital and Seubert’s Quality Home Care before opening Devin’s Home Care with her daughter Beth in 2007. Eddy thoroughly enjoyed and excelled in her profession with her kind and caring heart, making many forever-friends along the way. Like mother like son, Eddy always enjoyed a ride on her sled. It was always a special day when Mike would come up and ride with her.
Eddy was preceded in death by her dad Frank Lantz; mother Lee Lantz; father Richard Herwat; husband Stan; sister Bobby Herwat; and followed closely by her son Mike Devine.
She is survived by her sister Mary; daughter Beth Keeler; grandson Jesse Keeler; granddaughters Cori Keeler, Karen Richards and Hailey Devin, as well as several nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held at the Mount Idaho Cemetery at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, October 30, 2021. A gathering of family and friends will be held following the service at the Idaho County Veteran’s Center 318 E. Main St.
