Mary May (Williams) McClain, 87, of Post Falls, Idaho, passed away in her home on Nov. 12, 2020, of natural causes.

There will be no services.

Mary was born in Fossil, Ore., to Dell and Hope Williams on April 28, 1933. She grew up in Idaho and Oregon. She married James Henry McClain on March 16, 1953, in Goldendale, Wash. They spent most of their married life in Central Oregon. She earned her GED later in life.

She worked in several jobs during her life, including at the gas stations they owned while living in Addison, Ill. But, her favorite job of all was working as a CNA in home health. Her most important jobs, though, were being a wife, mother and grandmother.

She was a member of Eastern Star. She attended church wherever they lived and helped with some of the responsibilities there. She enjoyed several activities, but square dancing and bowling were a couple of her favorites.

Mary is preceded in death by her husband, James Henry McClain; daughter, Myra; sons Dick and Dewayne, his wife, Susan, and their children, Jimmy and Michael.

Mary is survived by her son, David H. McClain; his wife, Diana; their children, Ariana, Jennifer and Mandy; daughter-in-law, Lily McClain; Dick's son, Chris McClain; and five great-grandchildren.
