SCOTT -- JESSIE MAE CLAYTON In Loving Memory of Jessie Mae Clayton Scott Jessie Mae Clayton Scott died quietly at her home in Albuquerque, NM on May 8, 2006 following a prolonged illness. Jessie was born October 4, 1936, to Jessie and Lucille King Clayton in Longview, TX. She was the eldest of four children. She met George H. Scott in Los Angles, CA and was happily married to George for over 25 years until his untimely death in February, 2000. Jessie's life is a wonderful success story to be honored and celebrated by those who were fortunate enough to know and love her. Jessie loved and lived passionately and authentically. She was a self-educated Bible Scholar who lived her spiritual principles everyday, with all her heart and soul. Her boundless compassion, generosity, and strength were characteristics that helped her reach across the barriers of class, age, race, and sexuality and selflessly share herself and whatever else she had. Jessie not only made sure her biological daughter received multiple degrees, she also helped financially educating and training countless others. She felt blessed to be able to help others and her family always came first. One example of her many good deeds: Jessie lived most of her adult life in Compton, CA and she would buy food stamps from drug-addicted mothers who were selling the stamps to buy drugs. Jessie would then use the food stamps combined with her own money to buy food and other necessities for the children of the drug addicts. Jessie has been told by a number of these now grown children about the difference she made in their lives and how grateful they are that she cared about them. Jessie had an innate ability to inspire and encourage many people with her wisdom and wit to move beyond their perceived limitations and to strive beyond what they could imagine for themselves. Jessie was her own best example. She was born into extreme poverty, left home at age thirteen with her baby, and through her indomitable spirit, wits, and will, she was able to prosper and one day become an owner of property on Lake Dallas and in Albuquerque, NM . . . no small feat! Jessie is survived by two daughters: Joana "Juba" Clayton and Carletta Bullock; two granddaughters: Amamari Cedar-Rain Bullock and Sara Ajabu Bullock, Albuquerque, NM; one sister, Louise Bowie; and brother, Clarence Buchannon; and extended family, Betty Davis, and the family of Mrs. Lena Mae Gilbert, her second mother, including O.C. Maples, Rev. Claude Odel Maples, Charles E. Maples, James L. Williams Jr., Lilly Gillam; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins in both Texas and California. Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday May 13, 2006 at Dalton Funeral Home, 1550 North Stemmons, Lewisville, TX 75067. Burial will be held at Hilltop Memorial Park.

SUTCLIFFE -- Harry Sutcliffe, 82, died Thursday, April 6, 2006 at VistaCare Hospice of complications following surgery. He was born March 22, 1924 in Brighouse, Yorkshire, England to Seth Craven Thomas and Lily Hepworth Sutcliffe, who preceded him in death. The family moved to Glasgow, Scotland while Harry was a boy. He was educated there at Rutherglen Academy and later at the University of Glasgow, where he read economics and modern languages. Midway through World War II, he and his boyhood friend, Bill Kellie, together volunteered for the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm. Harry became an officer and flew as an observer in the Barracuda torpedo-bomber, serving in the North Atlantic and the Caribbean. Following the war, he transferred to the Royal Canadian Navy. Upon leaving the service in the early 1950s, he began a business career that would encompass banking, sales, and management consulting. In 1954, he married Rachael Sproule Porter in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and in 1965, they and their young family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they added to their family and happily settled for the next forty-odd years. Retiring in the early 1990s, Harry read, gardened (especially bonsai and espalier), flew with the Civil Air Patrol, enjoyed jazz (his era), socialized, and traveled to Canada, Germany, England, and, regularly, Ireland. And the twenty-first century brought grandsons--pure joy. Harry Sutcliffe is survived by his wife of fifty-two years, Rachael of Albuquerque and Erganagh, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland; son, Mark of Albuquerque; son, Christopher, currently of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; son, David and daughter-in-law, Patricia Casey and grandsons, Ian and Kieran, currently of Clifton, New Jersey; and sister, Jessie Burgess and nephews, Carl Sutcliffe, Paul, and Derek Burgess, and families, of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
