Catherine F. Devlin Obituary

Catherine Flynn Devlin, Jr. a longtime resident of Mount Kisco, NY, died on January 28, 2021 after a long illness. Affectionately known as "Cappy", she was born in 1941 in Bronx, NY to Robert H. Devlin Sr. and Catherine Flynn Devlin. Cappy graduated from Manhattanville College with a BA in Economics, where she continued to be an active alumna. Following her graduation, she held various positions in public relations and journalism at Readers Digest and Ticketron. A three month trip to Europe inspired her to establish Cappys Travel and Cappy Devlin International, Inc. in Mount Kisco and Manhattan in 1973. Her motto and passion was: "The world is open to you. Experience it." She was well known for her entrepreneurial skills which enabled her to operate her travel business for over 40 years while navigating a changing industry including developing a patented travel kiosk, building an on-line travel business and hosting a live travel radio show in her 70s. She relished bringing the joy of travel to clients. In 1973, she co-founded Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, a pioneering international travel and exchange program for youth which is still in operation today. Highlights include gaining admission to communist China with Brown University choral students and meeting Saint Mother Teresa in India, who remained a lifelong inspiration for her. Cappy enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Although self-described as "shy", she was always the "life of the party" with a love for music, dancing and champagne. She was pre-deceased by her parents, her sister Loretta (Robin) and her brother Robert (Rick). She is survived by her brother Dennis, many nieces and nephews, friends and former colleagues. A Memorial Funeral Mass will be held at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Mount Kisco, NY on Saturday, August 14th at 11:30 a.m. Funeral Service Cassidy-Flynn Funeral Home Inc. Thursday, February 4, 2021 9:30 AM 288 East Main Street Mount Kisco, NY 10549
