Ivalee was born on December 4, 1916, in Cleveland, Alabama. She was of the Baptist Faith. Ivalee was employed by So So Styles in Centre for 25 years! She was a special woman, wife and mom. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten. She was admired by all who knew her for her honesty, fairness and love for each and every member of her family. Heaven has gained a worthy soul and we lost an Angel. Her passion was to go to Chandler Mountain and pick tomatoes for canning and making her special homemade soup for her friends and family. She also push mowed her yard for exercise until recently. Ivalee was preceded in death by her husband, Wiley H. McLain; son, Tony McLain; and parents, Earl and Waitie Dean. She is survived by her sons, Howard (Judy) McLain and Wiley (Vickie) McLain; daughters, Jeannie (Patrick) Sosebee, Sandra Sexton, LeeAnn Lovett and Jan Fields; 15 Grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; brother, Earl (Sylbal) Dean; sisters-in-law, Jo, Ruby and Frankie Dean; and special friends, Jannie Minton, Shelia and Floyd Erwin.

Pallbearers were Grandsons.
