Jessie Alberta Grablow, age 94 of Millville, passed away peacefully, after a brief illness, on Sunday morning, August 18, 2019 at the Millville Center LTC. Born and raised in Salem to the late William and Roseanna (Beatty) Keen, Jessie attended Salem High School. She met and married Irving, the love of her life, and together they raised their family and shared over 40 years of marriage until he passed away in December of 1975. Jessie had worked in many different types of occupations over the years to help support her family. She worked for Dupont while her husband was overseas bravely serving our country in the United States Army in World War II. She kept working when he was injured in battle and sent home to recover. They lived in Svannah, Georgia for a short time, and then returned to our area and lived in North Wildwood for many years, and then settled in Millville in the early 1970's. Over the years, Jessie also worked at the Hollywood Dress Shop in Wildwood proper and the catalog department at Durand Glass Company in Millville, and then retired. Jessie's favorite pastime was going dancing, especially to the big dances at the American Legion with her late husband, Irving. They also enjoyed their home in North Wildwood and going to the beach together for many years. She loved to sit and watch her husband surf fish. She loved taking her daughters Yorkie, Molly, out for long walks when she was able to. Jessie is survived by one daughter Rosann G. Bates of Millville; one son Howard L. Grablow, Sr. of Millville; four grandchildren, Howard Lee Grablow, Jr., Bobby Prince, Jr., Melissa Ann Clark, and Kelley Lynn Prince; two great grandchildren, Alexandria and Claudia Cannistraci; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was predeceased by her loving husband Irving Grablow; her adopted daughter Kathleen Wanda Becica; two sisters, Wilma Blackwell and Katherine Henderson; and one grandson Jeffrey Alan Grablow. Funeral services will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of the Christy Funeral Home, Millville.
