Tina Marie Clouse, 54, of Lebanon, passed away Thursday, October 17, 2019 at home in Port Royal, South Carolina. Tina was born on March 18, 1965, a daughter of the late Robert C. and Linda Lee (Scott) Lewis.
Tina was a graduate of Western Boone High School. Following school she became a dedicated QMA/CNA for 31 years at Parkwood and Hickory Creek nursing homes in Lebanon. After moving to South Carolina, Tina worked as a CNA trainer at Grandstrand Healthcare in Myrtle Beach, the Bayview Manor in Beaufort and The Lifecare Center in Hilton Head.
Tina was a kind, caring, hardworking, devoted, and beautiful person. She dedicated her life to taking care of other people which she always enjoyed doing. In her 31 years as a QMA/CNA, she only took two sick days in total. Tina truly had a heart of gold and will be sincerely missed by many.

Tina is preceded in death by her parents, Robert C. and Linda L. Lewis; a sister Missy Durham; and two nieces Leann Smith and Ashley Beasley Frye whom she adored.
The family would like to thank Jeff LaFon for staying by Tina’s side during this devastating time. “Thank you for loving and caring for our beloved sister. The love you have shown will never be forgotten.”
