Obituary of Devon Baird

Devon Beals Baird, age 68, of East Greenbush, New York, died May 12, 2020 after a long battle with illness. Born in Bristol, Rhode Island to the late Nelson and Doris (Gladding) Beals, she was the third of eight children.

Devon enjoyed travel (especially to visit family and friends) and enthusiastically attended live music and theater performances of all kinds. After retiring from a long career with Aetna, she volunteered many happy hours working as a teacher’s aide in local kindergarten classrooms.
