McLean- It is with great sadness that after a courageous and valiant fight with cancer that the family of Billie Jo McLean (nee LeClair), age 35, of Corunna announce her passing at home with her husband by her side on Thursday January 2, 2014.  She was  best friend and much loved wife of Richard McLean for 10 years. Cherished mother of Joshua and Alley. Much loved daughter of Joanne LeClair. Special niece of Aunt Debbie McIntyre. Much loved daughter-in-law of Susan and Larry McLean. Dearly loved sister-in-law of Shelley and Jeff Vansevenant and Ryan McLean. Adored Aunt “B” of Ava and Olivia Vansevenant. Billie Jo will also be forever missed and remembered by all the LeClair and McLean family members including her aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, friends and co-workers. It is comforting to know that she will be lovingly embraced by her very special grandma Grace. Billie Jo was born in Sarnia on February 23, 1978. She graduated from the Registered Practical Nursing Program at Lambton College. She loved her career and co-workers on the Medical floor at Bluewater Health in Sarnia. She enjoyed nothing more than watching her children participate in hockey, baseball, skating and dance always with a Timmies tea in hand. In between sporting events she found joy in shopping especially when she would find a good deal. In her spare time Billie Jo loved setting up photo shoots and taking many pictures of her family.  Friends will be received at the Knight Funeral Home, 588 St. Clair Parkway, Corunna on Sunday January 5, 2014 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. where the funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Monday with Allan McKeown officiating.
