Barbara Jean Unsell-McClain was born Nov. 30, 1934 and left this world to fulfill her place in Heaven Mar. 24, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents, Myrtle and Ernest Arms, brothers Ernest Arms Jr. and John Arms, sister Velva Arms, granddaughter Mary Gates, daughter-in-law Marcia Unsell, husbands Bennie M. Unsell and Lonnie McClain, great-grandparents, cousins and multiple other family members. She has two living brothers, Donald Arms of Midwest City and Bob Arms and his wife Linda of Norman, OK. Barbara has two children, Donna Unsell Gates of Guthrie, OK and Bennie M. Unsell II of Midwest City. She had 8 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 13 great-great-grandchildren. She was very loyal to her family and a very loving person to all. Barbara owned a retail candy store in Crossroads Mall for 25 years. She gave all of her children and grandchildren the opportunity to make spending money by working at the store selling popcorn. She taught us all how to have a strong work ethic and how to manage our money. She always helped us with anything we needed and couldn’t do. All she ever asked from us was never drink the last Dr. Pepper! She was a long standing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She always taught us to remember that family is forever. We love you and will miss you, but we will see you again in your beautiful robes in Heaven. Visitation for Barbara will be from 4-8pm Monday, March 29 at Bill Eisenhour NE funeral home. Graveside services will be at 3pm Tuesday, March 30 at Arlington Memory Gardens in Midwest City.
