“Jane Ann Clayton was born on June 29, 1954 in Kermit, TX. She passed away on April 13, 2018 at her home in Copperas Cove, TX after a courageous battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. As with most everything she tried, in the end she left this life victorious. Her father’s career in the oil field took her to different places in Texas, New Mexico, and even Libya, which spawned a love for travel that she embraced later in her life. California, Colorado, Florida, Wyoming, Washington, Canada, and Ireland are some of the places she enjoyed visiting and making memories with her husband and family. There was nothing she couldn’t do. After starting her career in administration and banking, she went back to school to earn a degree in computer programming in 1991. Over the next 27 years, she worked her way into executive leadership at First Community Services where she led their Applications Development functions. Her passion for her work and travel was exceeded only by her passion for her family. She was married to her husband, Ray Don Clayton of Copperas Cove, TX for 42 years. She and Ray have two children and two grandchildren. Her son Todd Clayton and his wife Susanna live in Schertz, TX with their kids Cy and Myla. Daughter Crystal Clayton and her wife Lorraine Garnett live in San Francisco, CA. She is also survived by brother Mark Stanford and wife Jamie of Houma, LA; brother Steve Stanford of Lovington, NM; sister Tracy Potter and husband Dennis of Artesia, NM, as well as many nieces and nephews. She is now reunited with sister Debbie Purdy and parents Ed and Phyllis Stanford in eternity. The family will welcome visitors at her Celebration of Life. It will be held at First Baptist Church of Copperas Cove on Friday, April 20, 2018 at 2:00 pm. The family also wishes to thank Crawford-Bowers Funeral Home of Copperas Cove for managing her arrangements.”
