Doris M. Rowan DeVono, 94, of Clarksburg passed away on Sunday, March 31, 2024 at United Hospital Center after a brief illness, surrounded by her entire family.

She was born in Buckhannon on March 13, 1930, a daughter of the late Dana A. and Madeline Royer Rowan.

She is survived by her husband and soulmate, Joseph DeVono, Jr.

Kevin DeVono and his wife Kirsten of Bridgeport and Dr. Joseph DeVono and his wife Dr. Mary Faw-DeVono of Charleston; one daughter, Roni Rae Bunnell and her husband Sonny of Clarksburg; one granddaughter, Heather Marie Burnside and her husband Michael of Clarksburg; one grandson, Joseph Michael (Joey) DeVono of Bridgeport; one great grandson, Christian Michael Burnside of Clarksburg; one nephew, Frank Vita of Clarksburg; and one niece, Lisa Rosselli of Washington, DC.

Following retirement at UHC she was employed as administrative secretary to L. Joseph Trupo and Wayne Godwin, former Sheriffs of Harrison County.

Her family was the highlight of her life, and she was always there with helping hands and looking for opportunities to give to others. Her motto was “Joy Through Giving”.
