Obituary – Gwendolyn LaVerne McClure

Gwendolyn LaVerne McClure, age 90, was born July 25, 1929, on a farm near Kellerton, Iowa. She was the daughter of Raymond Weston and Golda Luella (Young) McGauhey. She died at Westview Acres Care Center in Leon, Iowa on June 29, 2020.

Gwen attended rural schools and Leon High School. While in her teens she accepted Christ and was a longtime member of Trinity Christian Church, Decatur, Iowa.

She and Max Donald McClure were married in 1945, during the time Max was serving in the Navy. Upon his return to Decatur County, Iowa they moved to a farm north of Grand River where their two children, Donald Craig and Linda Denise, were born. She always enjoyed her family and remained close to extended family members even after they left the farm and lived in Knoxville and Des Moines, Iowa and Colorado. When they retired Max and Gwen returned to Leon where they enjoyed many happy years.

Gwen enjoyed the outdoors, their cabins, boating, fishing, and vacations. She also had many hobbies and had a wonderful artistic talent for blending the souvenirs of her travels into crafts.

Preceding her in death were her parents; husband, Max in 2002; and sisters and brothers-in-law, Gerata and Matt Scott and Glendean and Don Hembry. Left to mourn are her son, D. Craig McClure and wife, Teresa of Parker, Colorado; daughter, Linda D. Kloosterman and husband, Craig of Aurora, Colorado; granddaughter, Lena McCarty and husband, Chris of Bennett, Colorado; great grandsons, Nick and Tommy; and step grandson, Kyle Kloosterman; and many beloved nieces, nephews and friends.
