MILLWOOD — Molley Sue (McClain) Ash went home to be with the Lord on Jan. 17, 2011.

She was born to Charles and Jane (Smith) McClain on Nov. 25, 1956. On Sept. 17, 1978, she married Danny Ash, who survives. She enjoyed her flower bed, cooking and baking, feeding the welfare birds, shopping at Walmart, eating out at Spearman’s and other restaurants, and going on roundabouts with Carley Rae. She was also active in her church, New Castle Ministry.

Molley was a wonderful caring person, and with all of the problems she went through, she never put herself first. She was always wanting to help others in any way. She will be missed by her husband and family, and Molley took a lot of love to heaven with her.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her daughter, Deanna Michelle Ash; her granddaughter, Carley Ray Seitz; her mother, Jane McClain of Brinkhaven; her siblings, John McClain, Bonnie Wallace and Ed McClain, all of Danville, Nora Brooks of Brinkhaven and Richard McClain of Apple Valley; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father.

Following interment, a fellowship meal will be held at the New Castle Ministry church by Peggy Sue’s restaurant on U.S. 36. Calling hours will be Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m., and one hour prior to the service Friday at the funeral home.
