Marleah Joyce Drew, age 75, of Clarksville passed away Tuesday, July 11, 2023, at her residence.
Marleah was born January 26, 1948, in Red River County to James Robert and Hazel Strain Westbrook. She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Kathy Schrader and husband Jeff, and her sons, Glenn Drew, and Ryan Drew.
Marleah was a beloved wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and friend. She stole Johnny’s cap when she was fourteen years old, which led to a wonderful 57-year long marriage to her high school sweetheart. Mimi was kind, selfless, wise, and always happy to see you. She raised three rambunctious boys. Her sons called her Mimi. She cared deeply for her patients and community and had an extensive nursing career that spanned over 42 years. Mimi was a proud grandmother, great-grandmother, and fierce board game competitor. She is known for making sure her grandchildren remained close through the years by planning annual Christmas cabin trips full of games, home cooked meals, and mainly just being together as a family. Mimi was an excellent cook and showed love to her family by preparing amazing Sunday lunches and birthday meals. Mimi loved God and her family and ensured that church was a focal point of their lives. She touched the lives of many, and her legacy of faith and kindness will carry forward for many years to come through her family and friends.
