Angela D. McLain (Barnes) Memorial

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we come to you on behalf of the McLain/Barnes Family. The sudden and unexpected passing of our angel Angela Delois McLain, aka “Twin” has left us all heartbroken and in disbelief. Jayden, Tameka, Antoinette and Kieona, their immediate and extended family are deeply grateful for the outpouring of sympathy received in the aftermath of this tragic loss. Angela was a beautiful, intelligent woman, incredibly caring sister and an awesome mom. Her warm smile, kind spirit and sweet demeanor made everyone love her. You would be hard pressed to find anyone with a negative memory of Angela. She was a gem!

Angela is a US Army Veteran having served her country for 15 years! She was a proud graduate of Duke Ellington School of the Arts (Theatre Dept, Class of 2001) and earned her Associates Degree in General Studies from the University of Phoenix, Axia College. Angela was currently majoring in Criminal Justice and was just two classes away from obtaining her Bachelors Degree.

Angela loved her family tremendously especially her son Jayden, 7, and her late daughter, Adanyah. The bond Angela had with her sisters Kieona and Tameka, and her twin Antoinette was incredibly strong and undeniable. Those who knew and loved Angela will always honor and cherish Angela's memory. At only 34 years old, she left a legacy of kindness and genuity that will resonate in our hearts forever.

The Memorial Service for Angela McLain will be held Saturday, June 17th at 3:00pm at East Friendship Baptist Church 4401 Brooks Street NE, DC 20019.

The McLain/Barnes Family wants to express how deeply they appreciate the many offers of support they have received. In lieu of flowers, we ask you to consider making a contribution to the Angela D. McLain (Barnes) Memorial Fund to help cover the memorial and funeral costs and to help support Jayden.
