Jeanne Colette (Manion) Drabick, 90, wife of the late Andrew J. Drabick of Phoenixville passed away peacefully in her home on Friday morning, July 30, 2021.
She was born in Phoenixville on December 6, 1930 to the late John F. and Mary (Williams) Manion. She graduated from the John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls High School in Philadelphia and worked as a legal secretary for Elizabeth Howard in Phoenixville.
Jeanne was a longtime active member of St. Ann Catholic Church. She was also a gifted artist and volunteered as an art instructor at St. Ann School.
She is survived by three children: Joseph J. and wife Leah Drabick, Andrew J. and wife Margaret Swienckowski, and Maria A. Drabick; six grandchildren: Emily, Mia, Julia, Jonas, Julia, and Alexandra; 2 great grandchildren: Shiloh and Dash.
She was preceded in death by her son, James A. Drabick husband of Debbie Drabick and nine brothers and sisters: Catherine McHugh, Mae Supiot, Frances Dennis, Elizabeth Breslin, John Manion Jr., Robert Manion, Bernard Manion, Joseph Manion, and Edward Manion.
She was an avid lover of music and the outdoors but her greatest love and pastime was spending time with family and friends as well as reminiscing about her family history and her proud heritage.
Jeanne was a kind, selfless, and generous person always willing to help those in need; offering some sound advice or guidance with an ever present smile even when times or situations were tough. She had an amazing ability to see all sides of things never judging always guiding. She had a quiet strength and never complained always looking for the better in everything. She deeply loved her family including her beautiful extended family of cousins, nieces, nephews, those she considered family and dear friends. A devoted and steadfast daughter of the Catholic faith she remained ever faithful throughout her life especially with its many challenges. A woman always graceful until God called her home
