AUBURN – Charlene L. McClain, Carbondale, died Monday, Feb. 8, 2021, at Auburn Homestead, Auburn. She was 84.
She was born Oct. 11, 1936, in LeRoy, the daughter of Grover Edwards and Murel Brown. She grew up in the Topeka area, graduating from Topeka Seaman High School with the Class of 1955.

Charlene was a lifelong homemaker. She also loved tending to her flowers and many plants. She kept a very nice garden all of the time.

Above all things, though, Charlene loved her family deeply and it showed in the time and care she took for them throughout her life.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Jack McClain; her parents; a son, Steven McClain; and three siblings, Maxine Rodriguez, Ernie Edwards and Hazel Eastman.
Charlene is survived by three sons, Kevin McClain, Topeka, Stewart McClain and wife, Rhonda, Carbondale, and Troy McClain, Berryton; four grandchildren, Heather Munoz, Lisa Crouch, Laura Hansen and Heather Neill; and several great grandchildren.
