Deviny was a vibrant and amazing young teenager who’s life ended prematurely on July 17, 2012. That morning Deviny and a group of teenage friends decided to take out one of the kids parents boat without permission. The kids were having a great time boating around the Redington inter coastal when the tube Deviny was on swung out too far and struck a pier. Deviny passed away shortly after the accident as a result of her injuries. Please help us in keeping Deviny’s memory alive by helping to educate other kids about the importance of boating and watercraft safety. All donations and funds raised through the Deviny Boese Foundation will be used to promote education and a memorial scholarship in her name.
