Over a Century of Service
As Devlin Funeral Home approaches it’s 100th year serving the Pittsburgh community, it is important to reflect on the journey leading up to this occasion. As a son of Irish immigrants, Bernard Bede Devlin was born in Pomroy, OH in 1877. Bede was one of ten children, seven boys and three girls. In 1901, the family moved to Pittsburgh and settled in the Hill District. Bede grew up attending St. Bridget’s parish with his family.
To this day, the Devlin family continues to carry on Bede’s legacy, by guiding residents in Pittsburgh through the arrangements necessary to create a meaningful ceremony that celebrates the unique life being honored.
