About the award
Vina Clements was employed at the Cape Breton District Health Authority business offices in Glace Bay (Community Hospital) as a secretary and office assistant for more than 40 years. Vina touched so many lives during her years at the Community Hospital due to her bright and bubbly personality. She was born to dance and thoroughly enjoyed music, live entertainment and, with a little room, she could make any surface into a dance floor.
Vina had a very strong faith and exhibited so much love to all her family and friends. She always cherished her special love with her son, Jeff and her granddaughter, Emma. She enjoyed packing up her suitcase for an adventure with Jeff, whether it be on a bus tour to Florida or flight to visit family in Ontario. She also had a deep love for animals, especially dogs.
