Alice Marie (Knudsen) Clifford (Marie to all who knew her) was born to Joseph Edwin Knudsen and Alice Clyde Knudsen on August 22, 1923 in Pima, AZ. She was a graduate from Yuma High School. She married her sweetheart, Clarence Nyle Clifford, who she cherished and loved for her time on this Earth and for Eternity.
She was a homemaker, and loved her occupation. She was a great cook, accomplished seamstress, made the best enchiladas, a member of several singing groups, President of the PTA, served happily in many Church callings, danced a lively 2-step with her sweetheart, and the VERY BEST MOTHER EVER!!
She had 3 wonderful children, Linda (Larry) Bowman, Joyce (taking applications) Maxson, and Donald (Darlene) Clifford. She was a delight to all her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Her services will be held at the Lehi Stake Center at 1430 N Grand, Mesa, AZ 85201 on February 24, 2017 with a viewing at 9 am in the Relief Society Room, and 10 am Service in the Chapel. Graveside will follow at Mesa Cemetery following the Service. The Family would like to offer a special thank you to Hospice of the Valley and Montecito Acute Care Rehabilitation Center for all the help in Marie’s care.
