Bellaire, formerly of Holt
Mrs. Evelyn Elaine Remainder McClure, daughter of the late Arthur and Rachel Rosser Remainder, was born February 29, 1920, in St. Charles, Michigan. She attended and was a 1937 graduate of the St. Charles Union Public Schools. Evelyn was also a graduate of Saginaw Beauty School and opened Elaine’s Beauty Shop in St. Charles enjoying her cosmetology profession for over 20 years.
Evelyn was a dedicated member of the Seventh-day Adventist church throughout her life. As an active member she faithfully supported Children’s Ministries, served as a Deaconess, and volunteered for over 25 years at the Lansing Community Service Center and Food Pantry. Though reserved, her warm smile broke through barriers and comforted those in need.
She married Stanley Alexander McClure on July 12, 1941. They were blessed with three children, Marilyn, Brenda, and Ron. Their lives significantly changed in 1967, upon moving to Holt, Michigan, to provide their son with exceptional learning opportunities. Evelyn took a position as a medical secretary in 1968, and worked for Dr. John Tilden until her retirement in 1985.
Stanley preceded her in death on June 13, 2012, after nearly 71 years of marriage. She was also preceded in death by her parents, brothers Thomas and Henry (Tubby) Remainder, and beloved sister, Margaret Remainder Schlager.
Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her children: Marilyn Rae McClure, Brenda McClure Bartel, Ron Curtis McClure, and Harvey E. Bartel; 10 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren; brother-in-law, Donald C. Schlager; dear family friends, Marvin and Judy Anderson and Donald and Jeanne Robinson, as well as, a host of devoted nieces, nephews, and friends.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, September 18, 2020, at the Lansing Seventh-day Adventist Church, 5400 W. St. Joseph Hwy., Lansing, MI 48917. Burial will follow in Leek Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the church on Friday for 1 hour prior to the service.

WORDS OF APPRECIATION
Our family would like to thank Meadow Brook Care Facility Staff, Bellaire, MI for their loving kindness and care. To our friends and family, we are grateful for your love and the attention shown to our Mother, especially in these last few years. We will miss her dearly and daily; however, we pray each of us will be ready as we anxiously await Jesus’ return and dwell forever.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39”
