Virginia (Gina) Fletcher Clements, age 56, passed away peacefully Saturday, October 12, 2019 at home. Her final days were spent surrounded by her family. Gina was born December 8, 1962 in Chappaqua, NY, the daughter of Carolyn and Thomas Fletcher. She graduated with a B.S. in Education from the University of Virginia in 1985 and was a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority. In 1986, Gina married Barry Clements and was a loving wife and mother. Gina began her teaching career in California and after spending several years at home with her sons, she spent over 20 years teaching in Anne Arundel County. During this time, she earned an M.S. in Administration and earned accreditation as a National Board-Certified Teacher. She was also once nominated for Anne Arundel County Teacher of the Year. Her love for teaching was not confined to the classroom and she tutored many students in math at home. Gina also enjoyed sports, particularly UVA basketball and was an active member of Woods Church where she previously taught Sunday School. Gina genuinely loved people and she expressed her creativity in interior design, artwork, and fun social gatherings. Her favorite charity was Linda's Legacy, Giving Back where she coordinated donations of needed clothing and supplies at Severna Park Middle School for distribution to the homeless in Baltimore on Christmas Eve. Gina is survived by her husband Barry Clements of Severna Park, MD; son and daughter-in-law Kyle and Mary Clements of Washington D.C.; son and daughter-in-law Scott and Katie Clements of Severna Park, MD; mother Carolyn Fletcher of Ashburn, VA; sister and brother-in-law Linda and Jeff Mitchell of Purcellville, VA; sister and brother-in-law Judith and Robert Richards of Leesburg, VA; sister and brother-in-law Margaret and Mark Saine of Southport, CT. A service of Witness to the Resurrection will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 1:00 pm at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church, 611 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd, Severna Park, MD 21146. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Giving Back charity at www.homelessdrive.org where there is a dropdown box to honor Gina. A reception will be held following the service.

I am so sad to learn of Gina's passing. What a wonderful, intelligent, fun person she was. I have not seen her for many years, but I have fond memories of Gina from school days. May peace be with her family.
One of my salient recollections from high school is the sunny personality and radiant smile of Gina. Her positivity and joy were such a bouyant force that it was impossible not to have your own mood brightened, simply by being around her. Truly the world is a poorer place for her passing.
What sad news for all of us. Gina was always full of life, whether playing field hockey or providing us with leadership in student government. My heart especially breaks for our fellow classmate, Barry Clements. What a special partnership and life Gina and Barry must have shared together. One memory of Gina, and perhaps my recollection is superficial, was the way Gina wore the fashion of the day better than anyone. I can still picture her with the perfect wings in her hair and looking beautiful in her cowlneck sweaters. We didn't share many classes together because she was always in advanced studies. However Gina must have had many classes with Lisa Johnson and Cindy Waymack. Weren't they all members of the National Honors Society together? What a shame that three marvellously intelligent, warm and sweet friends who knew each other well should leave us so early.
