Esther R. Clement, homemaker and retired nurse, died on July 27th, 2020 at her Charlestown Community residence in Catonsville, MD. She was 95.

Born Esther Rosa Moore on January 11, 1925 in Henry County, Virginia, she was a daughter of the late John Robert and Mary Magdalene ‘Madgie’ Moore. She briefly attended Bridgewater College in Virginia before earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 1951 from the Johns Hopkins Hospital school of Nursing.

Miss Moore met her future husband, Dr. Thomas Clement while he was a student at University of Maryland Dental School and she a nursing student. Dr. Clement was commissioned a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy Dental Corps just before graduation from dental school.

They were married July 27, 1951 and promptly moved to the Great Lakes Naval training center in Illinois where she worked as a nurse in the Navy Dependents Hospital.

Mrs. Clement returned to Baltimore with her husband following his three-year tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Dental Corps and worked briefly at Johns Hopkins Hospital. After their young children were in school, Mrs. Clement served as receptionist and dental assistant in her husband’s dental office.

After twenty years in Baltimore, they moved their dental practice to Woodbine, Maryland where they continued to practice for another twenty-six years until retirement in 2000. Mrs. Clement moved with her husband from their Woodbine home in September of 2009 to Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville.

Mrs. Clement was a longtime member of the Brantley Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School and served as chairman of the Women’s Missionary Union. She enjoyed traveling and gardening and was a very talented seamstress, making many of her dresses and suits. She immensely enjoyed the family’s summer beach vacations with her children and grandchildren on the Outer Banks, a tradition that lasted twenty years.

Surviving her are her three children, Patricia A.C. Marshall of Baltimore, Sheree J. Clement and husband Marc Scott of Jackson Heights, New York, and David F. Clement of Colorado Springs, Colorado and five grandchildren, Patrick Marshall (Dawn) of Greenwich, CT, David Marshall (Courtney) of Fairfield, CT, Max Scott of Jackson Heights NY, Nicholas Clement of Denver, CO and Esther Marie Clement of Colorado Springs, CO and two great-grandchildren. Also surviving are three brothers, Eldean Moore of Charlotte, NC, Frank Moore of King George, VA and Michael Moore of Germantown, NC and four sisters, Mary Martin of Rocky Mount, VA, Donna Cooper of Tallahassee, FL, Violet Owens of Pfafftown, NC and Joy Ruoss of Marriottsville, MD along with many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a brother, Chester Moore of Collinsville, VA, and a sister, Magdalene ‘Pat’ Hall of Stuart, VA.

I could share so many fond memories about my sister. She was an inspiration to me. God gave her so many talents. One of my fondest memories was I was lucky enough to have her for my Sunday School teacher when I was about ten years old. Everyone loved her. She rewarded us with a bag of candy for learning the ten commandments. I often wonder how many people she lead to Christ. We have another Angel watching over us.
