In Loving Memory

Barbara Ann McLain

January 11, 1954 - September 14, 2019


Mobile, AL

On Saturday, September 14, 2019, Barbara Roberts McLain started her eternal life in Heaven at the age of 65, while surrounded by family. Barbara was born on January 11, 1954 in Mobile, AL to Lambert Roberts and Ivon Tootle Roberts. Barbara grew up in Mobile where she graduated from Davidson High School and the University of South Alabama.

On May 4, 1990, she married Kenneth McLain. They raised three children, Heather, Dana and Elizabeth as well as their great-grandchildren, Mariyah and Jeremiah.  Barbara found happiness in all things bright and beautiful; foremost being Jesus as her shining light. She loved enjoying time in the sun at Ono Island and traveling to tropical destinations.  Barbara was great at creating lasting memories for all of her children, that they now recreate for their children, in turn.  She spent time helping family businesses, from her father’s business, Beautilite and Heather’s business, Collision Experts.  Her passion for Christ will be remembered by her family and community.

Barbara was preceded in death by her daughter, Angelique Alsworth; her brother, James Roberts; and her parents Lambert and Ivon Roberts.

She is survived by her loving husband, Kenneth McLain; her sister, Fran Roberts Schreck; her three children, Heather Humphries, Dana Phelps and Elizabeth Goldman; four grandchildren, Mary Boone, Brice Humphries, Lain Searle and Jordyn Phelps; five great-grandchildren, TJ, Mariyah, Jayden, Jeremiah and Kamari.
