She was born Sept. 6, 1963, in Charleston, WV, daughter of the late Lee Otis Parker and Nella Faye (Summerfield) Parker.

Along with spending time with family, Drema enjoyed gardening and reading.

She is survived by her children Nicole (Jacob) Raber, Chad (Concetta) McCord, and Jonathan Russell; her grandchildren Alexandria, Olivia, Declan, Daniel, Blake, Madison, and Troy; her great-granddaughters Raelyn and Bailey; five brothers, three sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Teresa Lynn Parker, and her long-time partner, John R. Russell.

Drema was grateful for her care provided over the last year by Strecker Cancer Center, The James at OSU (especially the teams of Dr. Bixel and Dr. Beyer) and Amedysis. She appreciated the strength and support of her family during her illness, especially her sisters Lois (Don) Dawson and Merrill (Tommy) Drake.
