MRS. SPENCER J. McLEAN
April 8, 1892-April 14, 1964
 
Mrs. Agnes E. McLean, wife of the late Rev. Spencer J. McLean, slipped away to her eternal rest April 14, 1964. Mrs. McLean was born at French Settlement, La., April 8, 1892 and upon retirement she and her husband made their home in Baton Rouge where she resided at the time of her passing.
She and Brother McLean were married June 28, 1911 and through the years they were a devoted couple in the service of the Master. Mrs. McLean was a fine mother and a good minister’s wife. She gave of herself untiringly and was always ready to do everything possible in helping her husband in his work. This did not mean, however, that she did not make a place for herself wherever they served for she was always loved and appreciated by everyone who knew her as a devoted wife, mother and servant of Christ.
Funeral service for Mrs. McLean was conducted by Rev. Barry Bailey, assisted by Dr. Bentley Sloane with interment in Resthaven Garden of Memory, Baton Rouge, La.
She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Aline Duples, Baton Rouge; three sons, Lee Vance McLean, Professor E.E.L.S.U. Baton Rouge; George Spencer, Supervisor. E.BR. Parish School Board, Baton Rouge; and John Gaddis, Pastor, Grant Street Methodist Church, Wichita Falls, Texas; a sister, two brothers and three grandchildren.
Those of us who knew Mrs. McLean were blessed in having had that privilege and the world will be a better place because of the fine family she left behind to carry on the faith she nobly demonstrated in her every day life.
