Mrs. Jessie Drew Criswell of Molino, was born March 27, 1925, in Lottie, to Jim and Ettie Drew. She passed from this world on December 10, 2012. She is preceded in death by her husband of 41 years, James Marshall Criswell. While her primary role in life was a homemaker, she worked for the State of Alabama in the 1930's & 40's on many fire towers in Baldwin and Escambia Counties.
She is survived by her three sons, Milton (Carlyn) Criswell of Molino, Billy (Janie) Criswell of McDavid and Gary (Tammie) Criswell of Molino; ten grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren.
Jessie has resided in Molino for the past 55 years and was a member of Highland Baptist Church. Over the years, she touched many lives through her work with vacation bible school and many other activities with her church and her ladies Sunday School class. She also volunteered at the now closed Molino Elementary School in the library, a job that she truly loved. She loved being around the children and was "Granny" to all. She also worked as a volunteer with the Council On Aging caring for the elderly who could no longer care for themselves. She was also a recipient of this same care in her latter days.
Many thanks to Mrs. Mary and Mrs. Eleanor for the care they gave to our mother. Also, many thanks to the home health care nurses and Covenant Hospice who provided such comforting care.
