ROBERT “BOB” PETER CLIFFORD, beloved husband of the late Pauline Clifford of Lethbridge, passed away at
the Chinook Regional Hospital at 6:40 p.m. on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at the age of 88 years.
He is the loving father of daughter Dianne (Charles) Faist of Burlington, Ontario, children Samantha

Daniel (Krysta-Lee) Clifford, Lisa (Justin) Burton, Allen Clifford, son Brian Clifford of Warner, Alberta
and son Brent (Julie) Clifford of Sherwood Park, Alberta, child Davis Clifford. He is also survived by
great-grandchildren Siena, Austin and Tealyn.
He was predeceased by his parents Emamarion & Daniel Clifford as well as brothers Gene & Dale Clifford.
Bob was born and raised in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan and moved to Climax, Saskatchewan as a teenager. He
attended Notre Dame School in 1943, playing hockey for the Notre Dame Hounds. He joined the Army in 1944
and trained as a paratrooper in 1945. Bob was discharged in 1946 and met the love of his life shortly
after in 1947. Together they spent time in Regina, giving birth to their first child/daughter Dianne and
moved to Moose Jaw in the early 1950’s where three boys blessed their household. In 1964, The Clifford
family moved to Montreal to further Bob’s career with Robin Hood Multifoods. In 1977, Bob and Pauline
along with their youngest son Brent, moved to Lethbridge, where an opportunity became available with
Ellison Milling. Bob spent the next 15 years working there.
In retirement, Bob was very involved with the Catholic Ghurch as a member of the Knights of Columbus. He
was also an avid volunteer at the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen. Bob loved fishing and was an avid gardner,
growing a variety of vegetables that he then donated to those in need (mainly the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen
and the Food Bank). Bob always gave willingly of his time and resources to help those who were less
fortunate than himself. He also gave to a number of associations that assisted children in third world
countries around the world. Bob loved sports, but especially baseball & curling. Even through some of the
tough times, Bob would persevere. You could often see him serving at the Soup Kitchen because he simply
loved helping others. The phone conversations not only as a father but also as a friend will be dearly
missed.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF
DOREEN LILLIAN SWAN
MARCH 21, 1921 ~
MARCH 2, 2014
It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our Mother, on Sunday, March 2nd, 2014, in Calgary.
Doreen was born in Edmonton, Alberta to Queenie and George Fallwell, the oldest child with three sisters
(Maree, Pat, and Shirley), and a brother (Ron).
After the family moved to Lethbridge, she married the “Love of her Life” Dan on August 22, 1942. Together
they worked as part owners of Purlex Dry Cleaners for over 25 years. They raised their two children and
took every opportunity to experience life and nature to the fullest; with weekend camping trips over the
Logan Pass, to Rosen Lake and Tie Lake in BC, where they built their family cabin. Dan passed away in
1970.
Doreen was an inspiration to all as she carried on her life travelling the world, even while working at
Hagen Electric from 1965 – 1989 as their office manager. Upon retiring she moved to Tie Lake, where she
lived with her dogs and enjoyed her “little piece of heaven”- the cabin, the mountains, and the lake.
Doreen is survived by her son Barry (Deb) Swan and daughter Peggy (Garth) Johnston; her grandchildren
Kerry (Chris) Spanos and their children Alie and Ashton; Tara (Ron) Stone; and Amber (Ryan) Chelle and
their children Savhanna, Gavin and Brooklyn.
The family would like to thank all of the very special people in Mom’s life. We would especially like to
thank her dear niece, Marilynne, who cared for her with love (Doreen’s Guardian Angel). Also, thank you
to the nurses and staff at Bow-Crest Care Centre in Calgary.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL,
610 4th Street South, Lethbridge.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Cancer Society, 317 10th Street South, Lethbridge, AB
