bullet  General Notes:

Clarice Dendy Cunliffe was born on 2 December 1884, the second child of Margaret and John Robert Cunliffe. She was born with a deformity of her left hand.

She attended Cleveland Street Public School with excellent academic results but was unable to fulfil her ambition to become a teacher because of her deformity.

Clarice was a avid reader - in fact she used to make her father very angry by reading while playing cards and chess.

While quite young she contracted cancer and underwent 'deep ray' treatment then in its very early stages of development. Her general health was severely affected, particularly her digestive system and thereafter was only able to tolerate very few foods. As a result of this intolerance, she developed pellagra which was fortunately diagnosed and treated before any serious damage occurred.

She lived with her parents in their home at Bellevue Hill until their death and then with her unmarried sister, Wils, and brother Roy, in various parts of Sydney including Gordon, Lindfield, their last home being at Collaroy.

She spent a great part of her life confined to a wheelchair but she never allowed her ill health to dampen her cheerful disposition. She kept house for Wils and Roy while they went out to work. Even with her deformed hand she was able to knit, crochet and do tapestry for the family.

She died at her home in Collaroy in 1960.
