Obituary (Source: grandson Christopher Drummond) DRUMMOND - Mrs. Alberta Drummond, affectionately known as ' Peaches' passed away on August 12, 2000 at the age of 80. She was born in Jacksonville, Florida, and married Mr. John S. Drummond in 1939. Shortly thereafter, they founded the Drummond Press, which she operated after Mr. Drummond passing in 1970. Under her management, The Drummond Press became the fifth largest women owned business in the state of Florida. Mrs. Drummond also owned Douglas Printing Company, Gaylord Brothers Stamp Company, Drummond Label Company, Hilcraft Engraving Company of Miami, Trade Engraving Company of Orlando, and served as Chairman of the Gator Freight Ways, Which she later engineered its sale to R & L Freightways. She was remarried to the late Marvin "Doug" Jolley in 1977. Mrs. Drummond was recognized as a female pioneer in business when she was named to the Board of Florida National Bank. This was the first such appointment given to a woman by a major bank in Florida. She served the community in a wide variety of church and charitable organizations. Mrs. Drummond is survived by a daughter, Diane Falconetti and a son, Dr. John N. Drummond. She also has three step-sons, Bob, Ed, and Joe Jolley; six grandchildren, Robert and John Falconetti, Sarah, Jenny, Mary, and Chris Drummond, as well as, numerous step-grandchildren. There will be a viewing from 6-8PM Monday at HARDAGE-GIDDENS FUNERAL HOME, 729 S. Edgewood Ave. A private graveside service will be held 10:00 AM Tuesday in Evergreen Cemetery for the immediate family and past and present employees of Drummond Press. Contributions may be made to the Mrs. John S. Drummond Foundation at The Jacksonville Community Foundation.

Other facts: Also interesting to also note is that, unlike her brother George Canova and that branch of the Canova family, Alberta was not a member of the LDS/Morman church and was a Roman Catholic during most of her adult life.
