A beloved daughter, granddaughter, sister and friend, DREW ANEESHA COPENHAVER left this world unexpectedly, at 21, on February 16, 2021. Born in Huntington, on December 29, 1999, to Jonathan and Amie (Roberts) Copenhaver, Drew was a graduate of Hobart Institute of Welding Technology. Drew was a talented welder and had recently moved back from Montana where she worked with structural steel. She was in Florida helping her brother when she passed away. Helping and caring perfectly sums up Drew. Drew was inventive, creative, an animal lover, a beautiful soul inside and out; she was fiercely loyal to her friends and family. We will always remember her tenacity, powerful presence and caring personality. Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed. When you think of Drew, celebrate the good memories you have of her. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest, which Drew did in every way. Drew was preceded in death by her father, Jonathan. She leaves behind her mother; brother, Dakotah; grandfather, John; and her best friend, Isaac, along with many more relatives and friends. A Celebration of Life will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 1, 2021, at Wallace Funeral Home, located at 1159 Central Ave., Barboursville. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that a donation be made in Drew’s name to The Troy Foundation, 216 W. Franklin Street, Troy, OH 45373, 937-339-8935. The Troy Foundation provides scholarships to welding students attending Hobart Institute of Welding Technology. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at www.timeformemory.com/wallace.
