Funeral Services were held at 10 a.m. on Friday, July 12, 2019, at Bethel Methodist Church in Ft. Deposit for Mabel Perdue Grant McLain, 92, of Greenville, who entered her eternal home on Wednesday, July 10, surrounded by her family. Burial followed in the church cemetery. Bro. Craig Grant officiated. Visitation was held from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, at Dunklin & Daniels Funeral Home.

Mrs. McLain was born in the Daisy Community of north Butler County on July 21, 1926, to Walter G. and Mattie Lou Perdue. Born second of nine children, she leaves one surviving sister, Mrs. Clara Mae Cash of Atlanta, Ga.

Her warm, loving smile was her gift to all she met. She loved the Lord and her family unconditionally. Mrs. McLain was no stranger to hard work. From humble beginnings of chopping cotton to working in the local sewing factories and in the latter years of her life a caregiver to those that needed her, she was always working. She instilled this ethic in her children and grandchildren. She taught them forgiveness and love beyond compare.
