Katherine 'Kitty' McCain

Katherine Elizabeth Jane mccain

Katherine “Kitty” Elizabeth Jane (Edwards) McCain, 93, of Washington, went home to be with her Lord Thursday night. Surrounded by her children and loved ones, she passed peacefully in her sleep after battling pancreatic cancer.

She was born March 19, 1920, in southern Daviess County, to Elmer and Cathern (Gress) Edwards, the sixth of seven children. In 1938, she met her future husband, Alvin “Bill” McCain, whom she married Oct. 12, 1940. The couple made a living on their Veale Township farm, raising three daughters, and creating many happy memories until his passing on Dec. 31, 1980.

She was active in the Glendale Lodge of Eastern Star serving a term as Grand Matron and as a member for more than 50 years. She was also a member of the Cumback Homemaker’s Club for more than 50 years, entertaining every February with her famous angel food cake. In her free time, she most enjoyed traveling, bowling, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. When she stopped traveling in 2004, she had traveled to 49 states, Mexico, the Caribbean, and all provinces of Canada. Her bowling career was equally impressive with more than 20 perfect games in her career. For the last 73 years of her life, she was a member of the Aikman Creek Baptist Church participating in the American Baptist Women, missionary, and acting secretary for over 30 years.

She will be dearly missed by her three daughters who survive her: Shirley and Larry McLin, Cynthia and Charles Webster, both of Washington, and Jeanne and Kenneth Barrett of Murfreesboro, Tenn. She is survived by grandchildren Chris Clark, Eric and Rhonda Clark, Jennifer (Webster) and Jeremy Carter, Jeffrey Webster, Bryan and Liza McDonald, and Timothy McDonald. Also surviving are 11 great-grandchildren: Latosha Miller-Scales, Justin Clark, Caleb Evans, Colton Evans, Hailey Carter, Ava Carter, Chas Webster, Mason Webster, Adisyn McDonald, Alexya McDonald, and Brody Clark; a stepgreat-grandson, Austin Gray; and two great-great-grandchildren, Gavyn Miller and Kailyn Padgett. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
