Esteemed Resident Dies at Home in Mifflin Township [Wyandot Co, OH] Thursday [12 JAN 1933]

The angel of death has taken another mother into its fold when Mrs. Elmore McClain passed away at her home in Mifflin township Thursday morning at 10 o'clock. Death was caused by sugar diabetes and complications with which she had been suffering for three years.

Leefe Kotterman was the oldest daughter of Solomon and Matilda Foucht Kotterman, both deceased, and was born in Pitt township [Wyandot Co, OH] May 14, 1864, being aged 68 years, 7 months and 28 days. On September 23, 1886, she was united in marriage to Elmore McClain, who survives. Ten children were born to this union. One son, Glen Edwin, died in infancy. The surviving children are Mrs. Plen Liles, of Forest [OH]; Mrs. Victor Fox and Mrs. Robert Robey, of Mifflin township; Mrs. Lawrence Bonnell, of Columbus [OH]; Jay and Bert McClain, of Toledo [OH]; Walter McClain, of north of Upper Sandusky [OH]; Russell McClain, of Findlay [OH], and Dana MCclain (sic), of Mansfield [OH]. Mrs. McClain is survived by one sister, Miss Elizabeth Kotterman, of Upper Sandusky, and two brothers, Charles Kotterman and Nevin Kotterman, of near Upper Sandusky. One sister, Mrs. Charles Enders, died four years ago. Twenty grandchildren also survive.

Mrs. McClain was baptized and confirmed at Emanuel Reformed church in Pitt township when in young womanhood, later transferring her membership to the Christian Union church in Jackson township [Wyandot Co, OH] where she remained a faithful member to the end. She was held in high esteem by all who knew her and was a good wife and mother ever ready to help those who were in need. Her departure from this world leaves a void that cannot be filled and her deeds will make her remembered by those who knew her.

Funeral services will be held Saturday [14 JAN 1933] afternoon at 2 o'clock at Wesley Chapel. Rev. W.A. Whitmer, of Marseilles [OH], and Rev. J.W. Sagar, of the Christian Union church near Forest, will officiate. Burial will be made in Oak Hill cemetery.
