Felicia graduated from Bayonne High School and continued her education at Maryland College for Women, graduating in 1945 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. While living in Maryland, she met and married Alex Elia Druash, and they raised seven children. The family moved south in the 1950’s, first to Folkston, GA, and then on to Gainesville, FL. Upon moving to Columbus in 1967, she worked at JC Penney’s and then she began a long career in real estate, starting in the early 1970’s. Felicia absolutely LOVED the beach, and spent many days at Panama City Beach, FL. She was also passionate about painting, creating pottery, antique shopping and knitting. Felicia and her friends at Covenant Woods knitted blankets and hats for the preemie babies in the local hospitals. She loved working crossword puzzles and reading murder mysteries. Her favorite color was purple and her favorite flowers were purple iris’. She also loved collecting pink flamingos and sea turtles. Felicia was Roman Catholic for all of her life, and was a member of St. Anne Church in Columbus. Felicia was preceded in death by both her parents, sister Rose Greco, one brother William “Bill” R. Greco Sr., her husband Alex E. Druash, and one son, Paul Druash.
