Obituary for Arlene McClain

Arlene McClain, of Madison Heights, died peacefully March 6, 2018, at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. She was 72 years old. Arlene was born January 13, 1946, in Hague, Virginia.

A devoted woman of great faith, Arlene was very involved at her church, Ascension of Christ. She served on the properties team, was a past council member, and a past Ascension woman of the year. She loved gardening and traveling, enjoying trips to Hawaii, Alaska, the Pacific Coast Highway, and Disneyworld with Dennis, Mike, Tina and the girls. A major highlight was the Disney Cruise to the Bahamas with her entire family to celebrate her and Dennis’ 50th wedding anniversary. More than anything else, Arlene loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 50 years, Dennis McClain, Sr., her sons, Dennis (Yvette) McClain, Jr. and Michael (Tina) McClain, and her grandchildren, Kaleb, Mykela, Nicole, and Camryn. She is also survived by her siblings, Darlene, and Mark (Terry) Hunkins. Arlene was preceded in death by her brother, David Hunkins.

Visitation will take place at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Rd. (between 14-15 Mile Rds.), Friday 4-8pm. Funeral at Ascension of Christ Lutheran Church, 16935 W. 14 Mile Rd., Beverly Hills, Saturday 11am. Friends may visit at church beginning at 10:30am.
