In Loving Memory of

Anne Booth-Clibborn 1926-2022

Anne Booth-Clibborn

7th January 1926 – 3rd December 2022
We will each have our own stories and memories of Anne as mother, grandmother, sister, friend, colleague, mentor, and inspiration. We invite you to reflect on them and then take the time to share them here. You can see what others have shared and hopefully add your own. If you prefer to handwrite something that would be most welcome – you just then need to take a photo of that to upload. Photos can be shared as well. Let us know if we can help, but if technology is not your thing then just use whatever means you like. You can contact us on
Anne had a lifelong association with Christian Aid dating back 70 years. She wouldn’t have wanted any flowers or gifts, but she would love to know that people were making gifts to Christian Aid. You can use this link, marking your gift in memory of Anne Booth-Clibborn, EH16 5DH

I remember Anne as my best friend Kitty´s mum when I was in primary school. From that child´s perspective she was a calm, kind, often comforting presence with a lovely voice, in both tone and accent. As we grew up and I moved away, I saw her only a few times as an adult …

It was a privilege and a joy for us to get to know Anne when she and Robin got married.  Robin had always been a family friend – a contemporary of my parents at Trinity College, Dublin.  Robin was best man at their wedding in 1948 and then in 1956 became my brother John’s …

Dear Isobel, Kitty, Mike and Eric, we are sending our love and sympathies for the loss of your Mum who we were so lucky to be able to hang out with every so often here in Edinburgh. I got to know Anne through the Boyd connection with my Dad’s Uncle Robin. I was so …
