Oakfield-Jean Marie (Wetherwax) Drock 79 years old, passed away Monday January 11, 2021 at United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia.

She was born March 29, 1942, in Batavia, a daughter of the late Clayton and Mary (Stringham) Wetherwax.  

Jean resided her entire life in her childhood home in Oakfield NY. In her lifetime she enjoyed bowling, loved to read and do puzzles as well watch cooking shows, soap operas and NCIS.  Jean was a long time camper at Godfrey's Pond.  She never missed a summer.  Camping and the people there were the highlight of her life and the campers were like family to her.

Jean worked at GTE Sylvania, Oliver's Candies and Oakfield Alabama Central School. The most important job Jean had was being a mother and devoted wife.  She continued her motherly role with helping raise her grandchildren. She was a staple for her children and grandchildren.

She is predeceased by her husband of 58 years Ronald Drock, siblings Audrey Hodgkins, David Wetherwax, and Kathy Miller.
