Kimberly M. “Kimmy” DeVinne, 28, of Norwich, passed away on Monday, January 31, 2022 after a brief illness at Albany Medical Center.

Born on February 11, 1993 in Johnson City, NY, Kimmy was the daughter of Peter “Pete” DeVinne and Michele Yale. She grew up in North Pitcher, NY and attended schools in Otselic Valley.

Upon moving back to the area, she became employed at Catholic Charities in Norwich. Kimmy then took a position with Child Protective Services for Chenango County.

In December 2020, Kimmy earned a master’s degree from Binghamton University, and on December 9, 2021 passed her New York State Licensed Master Social Worker exam.

Kimmy loved her family, friends, animals, and her many indoor house plants. She enjoyed traveling and spending time around the pool in the summer. She was a giving person and took pride in helping those around her.
