(October 6, 1922 - February 15, 2014) - The family of Mary Clifford is saddened to announce her passing at the Eventide Home in Niagara Falls, Ont. after a long and very rich life.
Mary was predeceased by her parents Caroline and Walter Clifford, sisters, Carey Hunt and Evelyn Lewis and brothers Walter, Albert and Ernie.
She is survived by her sister Laura (Tom) Baldwin and will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews and friends.
During her life Mary lived and worked in Kingston, Oshawa, Bancroft, Peterborough and Toronto where she spent most of her professional career as an executive assistant at Riverdale Hospital. Mary was a trail blazer, extraordinarily independent and in many respects well ahead of her time.
Mary had a penchant for traveling abroad before it was fashionable - all the more extraordinary given that she often traveled alone, managing to visit every continent except Antarctica while cultivating long and lasting friendships. Although she never married, she maintained close relationships with extended family and often chose to live near one or more of them. She had a genuine interest in what family members were up to.
All during her life and retirement, she knew the importance of physical activity, she enjoyed swimming, gardening and extensive hiking well into her 80's. She had a love for life, quick wit and strong convictions to support the causes she held dear. Mary also participated in a number of medical eye missions organized through former colleagues, to Central and South America and in the interior of Rwanda just weeks before the outbreak of war.
Our Aunt Mary will be greatly missed. Everyone should have an Aunt Mary.
A celebration of her life will be held in the summer when, family and friends will gather to honour her exceptional life. Friends may call Colin Clifford at 905-354-5868 for further details.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to: Bruce Trail (Brucetrail.org), Federation of Ontario Naturalists (Ontarionature.org) or Alzheimer's Association of Canada (Alzheimer.ca).

Born in Harwood in 1922, Eileen moved to Havelock as a young girl. She attended Peterborough Normal School (Teacher’s College) and taught for two years at Old Havelock before she married Howard. They moved to Cottesloe after the war, where she took on all the tasks of a farmer’s wife and was very active in the United Church. In 1955 she returned to teaching at the 4th Line School in Dummer and later at Warsaw Public School. Over 1,000 students passed through her classes.
Following Howard’s death in 1969 she married Jim in 1975 and spent many happy years on the Girven Farm entertaining friends and family with her delicious meals, often playing euchre and Scrabble. In 1999 she left the farm and moved to an apartment in Peterborough where she made many new friends and finished writing the story of her life. She spent the last years of her life at Royal Gardens where she was cared for by many loving people.
Family and friends were the centre of Eileen’s life which she nurtured through countless personal greeting cards decorated with her photos and, in later years, e-mails and Facebook. She will be missed by all those who knew her.
There will be a celebration of her life at the Havelock United Church on Saturday, February 15, at 11:00 am, Reverend Eleanor James officiating. Feel free to wear pink, Eileen’s favourite colour.
