Be the first to offer your condolences on Magnolia's Tribute Wall
Magnolia (Piedrahita) Devlin, a loving wife and mother, passed away in her home on Wednesday,
January 10, 2024. Magnolia was born in Medellin, Colombia in 1958, the daughter of Gabriel Piedrahita
and Albertina Ruiz. She was raised and educated in Colombia. In the early 1980s, Magnolia moved to
the United States, and settled in the Boston area. She worked at the Sheraton Boston Hotel as a Room
Attendant and at Beth Israel Hospital as a Supervisor of Environmental Services. In 1988, she married,
Joseph Devlin, and they settled down in Malden, Massachusetts. Magnolia enjoyed cooking, gardening
and especially caring for children and animals.
She is survived by her husband, Joseph Devlin and her son, Joseph V. Devlin of Malden, her brother,
Antonio Piedrahita and his wife Dora of Florida, and two sisters Teresa and Gloria.
When Magnolia first arrived here in the United States, she was very fortunate to meet Emilio and Ana
Guzman of Roslindale, Massachusetts. They gave Magnolia many years of love and support, and she
considered them her "adopted parents" here in the United States.
Funeral services will be held graveside at Holy Cross Cemetery on Thursday, January 18th. at 11:30 am.
Family and friends are welcome to meet at the entrance to Holy Cross Cemetery at 175 Broadway,
