Sally Anne Clifford, 72, was born on May 9, 1940, in Hamrun, Malta, to her parents, Austin Joseph Malone Birchall and Mary Gauci. She passed away Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, in Cape Coral.
She enjoyed spending much of her time gardening, traveling and doing crossword puzzles to keep her mind active. Everyone knew her as a loving mother and caring friend. To the many people she met both here and around the country, she had the ability to bring a smile to their face, a twinkle in their eye and a way to comfort those in pain in spite of her own pain.
She is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, James S. Clifford of Cape Coral; son, James C. (Debbra) Clifford of Obetz, Ohio; grandchildren, Ashley Clifford, Heather Mansfield, Christopher Mansfield and Michael Anderson; great-granddaughter, Raelyn Clifford; brother, Lawrence (Clementina) Birchall of Dursley, England; brother-in-law, Colin (Cynthia) Clifford of Ocala, FIa.; nieces, Christina Clifford of Ocala, Fla., and Rita (Anthony) Kemble and their children, Lawrence and Emilia, all of Cardiff, Wales; nephews, Chad (Duyen) Clifford of Mt. Laurel, N.J., Corey Clifford of New Mexico and Colin Clifford Jr. of Vermont.
She will be missed by all of those she touched.
