Mrs. McClain was born in Frankfort on August 3, 1959, to the late Cecil Voight Hockensmith and Doris Jean Daniel Hockensmith. She retired from the Frankfort Plant Board after serving many years as a customer service representative. She was a beloved member of Peaks Mill Christian Church. A woman with a selfless heart, Mrs. McClain could often be found serving her community through donations, charities, and church ministries, especially with the Salvation Army and Beach Club Ministry. Beyond serving her community, she was most proud to be called a “Professional Grandma” to her cherished grandchildren. Her love for her grandchildren can certainly be described as magical. She will be lovingly remembered as a wonderful wife, beloved mother and daughter, and precious “Mammaw.”
She is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Louis Edward McClain; children, Stephanie McClain Shaffer, Billie McClain Gannone (Jason); and Brandon McClain (Michelle); mother, Doris Jean Daniel Hockensmith; siblings, Sarah Miller (Charlie) and Ronald Hockensmith (Cathy); grandchildren, Colleen and Addison Shaffer, Anthony and Gianna Gannone; and Kendall, Kennedy, Kensley, and Kenston McClain; and by her sisters-in-law, Donna Hockensmith and Claudia Hockensmith. She was also blessed with many, many nieces and nephews, as well as her special next-door neighbors, Donna DeSpain and the late James Robert DeSpain.
In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Brendella Hockensmith, Steve Hockensmith, Betty Anglin, and Freddie Hockensmith.
Serving as pallbearers will be Brandon McClain, Jason Gannone, Jeff Shaffer, Andy Calvert, Michael Hockensmith, Chris Anglin, Thomas Hockensmith, and Nathan Hockensmith.
