Jeanette Drewery of Chatham passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Tuesday May 11, 2021 at the age of 91 years. Born in Raleigh Township, Jeanette was one of four children born to the late Harold D and Mary Josephine Little and is survived by her sisters Donna Jones and Margaret Clark. She was predeceased by her brother Ken Little.
Family meant everything to Jeanette. She was a loving wife of Raeburn Drewery (1988), mother of David Drewery, June Drew (2008) and Murray Drewery (2019). She will be remembered with fondness by her daughters-in-law Rita Drewery and Beth Drewery, her grandchildren Kenneth, Lisa, James, Michael, Justin and Emily and her great-grandson Tucker.
Jeanette loved watching sports, always rooting for her favourite teams the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Blue Jays. The only thing that brought her more joy was spending time with her grandchildren. She was looking forward to her second great-grandchild soon.
Jeanette’s family will remember her privately with a graveside service in Pardoville Cemetery where she will be laid to rest with Raeburn. In keeping with her love of sports and children, those wishing to remember her with a memorial donation are asked to consider All For Kids, a charity that provides financial assistance to children so that they can participate in sports.
