Surviving are one son, Michael E. McLean (Toni); one daughter, Janice Thompson Janey (Larry), with whom she lived the last 3 ½ years. She also leaves behind five grandchildren and spouses, as well as ten great-grandchildren; and sister, Mozelle Smith.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., Saturday, September 14, at Phillips Funeral Home and other times at 1187 Samarcand Road, Biscoe.
