Jean Arline Drew

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service for Jean Arline Drew will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 31, at St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Ardmore. Jean was born on March 16, 1925, and died on May 15, 2020. At that time, because of restrictions created by the coronavirus, the family chose to defer the service until members of the parish and the public could attend. A private committal service with immediate family was conducted earlier on May 22, 2020, at St. Philip's columbarium.

Jean graduated from The John Hopkins Hospital School of Nursing in Baltimore, MD, and attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She married Howard Edward Drew on September 25, 1948. They moved to Ardmore in 1970.

In addition to husband of 71 years, Jean is survived by daughters Susan Boelens and her husband, John of Keller, TX; Wendy Lemmon and her husband, Charles of Dallas; and Robyn Drew of Dallas; grandchildren, Lee Boelens and wife, Jamie; Melissa Taylor and husband, Robert; Katie Norwood and husband, Brent; Julia Halterman and husband Darrell; Haley Kassab, Travis Kassab; and ten great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to St. Philip's Episcopal Church.
