MARY EVILO (BURTSELL) DREW Obituary
DREW, Mary Evilo (Burtsell) 89, of Sagamore Beach, died of cardiac arrest on September 4, 2018. Known as "Ev" to her many friends, she was born and raised in Mapleton, Maine, was a graduate of the Aroostook State Normal School (1951). Teaching in Presque Isle, she met her husband, Richard (Dick) Warren Drew of Plymouth, MA. They were married in 1952 and moved to Natick, MA in 1955. She was an active member of Fisk Church in Natick. While raising five children, she enrolled at Framingham State College and received her B.S. in Education in 1971. She worked for the Wellesley Public Schools in the Library Department until her retirement in 1996, when she and Dick moved from Natick to Sagamore Beach. They celebrated 61 years of marriage until his passing in 2014. A beloved fixture of the Sagamore Beach community, she was well-known to residents and summer friends alike. The family vacationed at their cherished beach every summer beginning in 1960. She loved her six grandchildren, gardening, birding, and the Red Sox and Bruins. She was a voracious reader, and was known for her baking, her recipes, and as an endless supplier of cookies and banana bread to her grandkids. She is survived by her five children and their families: Bruce and Jean Drew of Hudson, MA, Scott and Barbara Drew and their children Lauren and Jeffrey of Newtown, PA; Carol Drew and Ralph DiGaetano and their daughter Keira of Rockville, MD; John and Joanne Drew of Sagamore Beach; and Paul and Beth Drew and their children Ryan, Nicholas, and John of North Andover, MA. A private memorial service will be held. Memorial contributions may be made to the National Marine Life Center, P.O. Box 269, 120 Main Street, Buzzards Bay, MA 02532 (nmlc.org).
