Vertia M. McClain

December 22, 1923 ~ February 10, 2017 (age 93)

    Mrs. Vertia M. McClain, 93 of Bonifay, Florida went home to be with the Lord on Friday, February 10, 2017 in the Signature Health Care of Chipley, Florida.  

    Being raised in a Christian home, she accepted Christ as her personal savior and was a devout follower of her Lord and Savior.  She taught in the school system of Holmes County for numerous years, loving every child that came through her classroom.  

    She leaves to cherish her memories her beloved son:  Washington Douglas McClain and his wife Mable; along with her beloved family, The McClain Family; other relatives and friends.


You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture,
Sweet memories we recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To our dear mother up above;
Tell her how we miss her,
And give her all our love.
