Dovie
August 23,1928 - March 3,2017

MESSAGE FROM THE FAMILY SERVICE INFO
Dovie Ophelia Drew was born in Haskell, Oklahoma on August 23, 1928 to the union of George Drew and Lullu Lee Jones Drew. As the 9th of 14 children, she said that she was raised to know her way around a farm. Dovie attended Simmons Elementary and went on to complete her schooling in Haskell where she graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in 1947. At the age 13 she gave her life to God while attending the First AME Church in the community.
 
Shortly after graduating from the 12th grade, Dovie moved to Ventura California to be with her sister. There she worshipped at Olivet Baptist Church and attended Ventura College. Later she moved to Santa Maria and was employed by the US Government at Camp Cook. Upon returning to Ventura, she resumed her duties as Church Secretary, Usher Board Member, and Director of Youth ages 6-12 all while being  employed by the US Housing Administration.

 
In 1963 Dovie moved to Los Angeles and continued in her spiritual journey, joining Second Calvary Baptist Church. She made her way back to the AME Church when she joined Ward AME in 1983, serving as an Usher Board Member, Trustee and Missionary Member. Her spiritual journey found a permanent home at Emmanuel H.M. Turner where she was so very loved. Serving as a Mother of the Church and member of the revered Council of Elders, were among the duties that were truly near and dear to her heart.
 
After working as a public health Registrar, she retired from the Los Angeles County Health Department with 17 years of service. But if you asked her, she would say “I’m semi-retired, I am not truly  retired until the Lord say so.”
 
And now that the Lord has spoken; in her retirement Dovie leaves to mourn: 4 daughters, Joanna Lewis, Janet Williams, Renee Littleton and Antoinette Azar, one son-in-law, Edwin Peng; 7 grandchildren Kristal Williams, Bert Williams Jr., Jonathon Drew, Ashely Littleton, Jordan Peng, Durham Peng, Tessa Peng; 3 great grandchildren, DaNia Wooley, David Wooley Jr., De’Ja Wooley; one brother, James Drew of Haskell, Oklahoma.

Where there is love, death can't win. Dovie was loved by all who knew her; particularly the host of adopted sons and daughters who she mentored, counseled and encouraged.  We will all cherish her memory.

Rest sweet Dovie, God has spoken. Let the church say amen.

Mere words cannot convey the overwhelming feelings of shock, disbelief, numbness, and despair that can result from such tragic, unexpected losses. I hope that your family will find comfort in the God of all comfort Jehovah, I too have felt the sting of death and although it is never easy to say goodbye to those we love, I was able to find much hope in Gods word the bible and I'm sure you can too 1Corinthians 15:26 And the last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing 1Corinthians 15:55 "Death where is your victory? "Death where is your sting? Revelation 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away... What a wonderful time we all have to look forward to when Gods purpose for mankind will be just as he intended no one will ever again get sick or die.
