Judi was born December 8, 1949, in Chicago, Illinois, to Jan and Patricia (Donovan) Raye. She married John McLain on April 26, 1969, and the couple came to Montana for their honeymoon. Judi fell in love with Montana, and she always said she was still on her honeymoon.

She worked at the Havre clinic for many years and was a member of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority which she loved. Much of her life was cut short by her illness, diagnosed in 1998, and for the last six years could not move at all. Throughout her illness she always kept a good attitude and didn’t complain too much.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Marty and Greg; and her mother-in-law, Thelma McLain who loved Judi as her own.

Judith is survived by her husband, John; her three sons, Amos, Mark and John (Angie) McLain; her grandchildren, Elyssa, Zoe and Uriah; great-granddaughter Olivia; brothers, Glenn, Lewis, Vine and Steve; one sister, Carol; and numerous McLain’s.
