Kaye Diane McLean, 83, of Essexville, formerly of Onaway, our independent, hardworking, beautiful, caring, and most loving mother and grandmother was born into eternal life on the morning of Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at McLaren Bay Region. Kaye was born in Jackson on January 25, 1935, the daughter of the late Charles M. and Jacqueline (Gibbons) Kesselring. On May 23, 1959, she was united in marriage to Robert McLean, who preceded her in death in 2007. Throughout life, Kaye was known for her love of spending time with her grandchildren and working in her yard. She was a proud democrat and union member; retiring from Walter and May Reuther Family Education Center, where she worked in food service.
