Brittanee Marie Drexel, 17, was called to be with the Lord tragically on April 25, 2009 while visiting Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She was born on October 7, 1991, and raised in Rochester, New York where she attended Gates Chili High School.
Brittanee was a bright and spirited young woman with a heart of gold. She had aspirations of modeling, becoming an OB nurse, getting married, and raising a family of her own. In her free time, Brittanee loved spending time with her family, making memories with her friends and playing soccer. Carefree and energetic, Brittanee enjoyed shopping, going out with friends and exploring new places. Brittanee has been and will continue to be deeply missed by everyone who knew her. Her bright smile and infectious laughter will live on in the memories of all who had the honor of knowing her.
