MCCLENAHAN, M. Lee. (Sigourney, IA, Feb. 28, 1932--Dubuque, IA, Apr. 30, 2015) The son of Charles Mervin and Mildred (Farmer) McClenahan, Lee graduated from Sigourney High School in 1950. He served in the United States Army 1954-1955 and then graduated from medical school in 1960 from the University of Iowa. Lee did his residency at Stanford University and had a private practice in San Mateo as a psychiatrist.

He returned home to Iowa to run a private family practice in Sigourney and What Cheer for ten years before moving to Dubuque to work. He retired as the medical director for the JOHN DEERE DUBUQUE WORKS.

Lee married Carol A. Eichman on August 25, 1990 at the FIRST CONGREGATIONAL UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST. He loved working out and was an avid runner for a number of years, including completing a couple of marathons. He had a love for singing and was active as a tenor for years with his church choir, the Dubuque Chorale, and the Julien Chamber Choir of which he was a founding member. He often treated people to Chicago trips to view the Chicago Cubs.
