Obituary of Estella "Reba" Matilda McClellan
Estella Matilda “Reba” McClellan, age 85 of Jefferson City, TN entered into the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, November 5, 2022. Reba was born on May 23, 1937 in Hawkins County, TN to George and Alice Larkins. Reba worked for twenty three years in healthcare, where she was a devoted employee and care taker for her residents.
Reba was the ULTIMATE Alan Jackson fan. She found solace in his music and she attended many of his concerts. She was also an avid fan of the Earnhardts. She was an amazing mother, wife, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, and friend. Reba enjoyed sewing and making quilts. Not only did she sew threads to make her quilts, the threads of love that she sewed within her family are threads that will never fray or tear.
Reba was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Billy McClellan; and two sisters, Joan Hensley, and Betty Hamilton. Left to cherish Reba’s memory are her daughter, Alice Crawford; step-daughter, Mildred Elliott; step-sons, Wade McClellan (Jamie), and Larry McClellan (Alice); five grandchildren, Kenny, Charles, Jennifer, Crystal, and Madison; four step grandchildren, Amanda, Tracey, Stacey, and Joanie; 11 great grandchildren; one great-great grandson; sister, Barbara Ann Meade; and several other loving family members and friends.
