Gloria "Kit" Jean McLean, age 62 of 1112 South Park Way, Sanford, NC passed on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at her residence.
Gloria “Kit” McLean was born July 19, 1956 in Sanford, N.C. the late James Hoover Taylor, Jr. and the late Hattie Lambert. She departed this life on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 with her youngest daughter, Jessica McLean at her beside.
Gloria attended Lee County high school and was the fourth eldest of nine children. Her greatest achievement was being the world’s greatest grandmother. Her grandchildren saw her as simply amazing. She gave it her all so that each of them knew that she loved them unconditionally.
She worked for some time at the Koury Company in Sanford, N.C. as a seamstress. She lived most of her life in Sanford, N.C., but she also spent some amazing years in Augusta, Georgia. She loved reading, cooking and cleaning but most of all attending to the needs of others.
Gloria was a strong believer in Christ and found great peace and comfort in her talks with the Lord. Despite what some may think, she spent hours in conversation with God. You would enter the room and begin to seek him as well because the conversations would be so intense.
She was preceded in death by one daughter, Tenilia McLean.
She leaves to cherish her memories: seven children, Sharonda Larden, James McLean Jr., Gordon McLean, Tomekia McLean, Jessica McLean (Kenan), Decauris McLean and Reddell McLean; her father, Charles Baldwin; a very special son-in-law, John Larden Jr.; six grandchildren, John III, Uryan, Jordan, Tyreke, Khendi and James McLean III; eight siblings, Deacon Berryman (Jim), Patrisha Campbell, James Taylor (Kathy), Nedra Rollins (Tino), Linda Dozier (James), Charles Baldwin, Jr. (Shonda), Shelia Lindsey (Patrick), and Mark Baldwin (Michelle) and a host of nieces and nephews whom all shared a very special relationship with her; other relatives and friends.
