- About Us
A Time To Live: Clara Emmanuel was born November 20, 1945, on the island of Salina Point Acklins to Effie Emmanuel. At an early age she moved to Nassau to obtain an education and became actively involved in church. It was then she became a champion and prayer warrior for God, getting involved in Sunday school, youth groups, and Street meetings was her passion. Life was not easy, as she was a struggling single parent of two boys Anthony and Antonio (whom she called Tony). She provided her children with the best as she was persistent about serving God. This was her refuge; She was a bold Soldier and enjoyed singing and preaching the gospel. She worked as a CNA and loved helped the less fortunate and could work wonders with her hands.
Adventure: She relocated to the United States to make a better life for her family. She labored tirelessly with no complaints. When sickness took over her body, she endured many hospital visits and sleepless nights. This did not slow her down, she continued to praise God and
help others. Clara was a woman of Integrity; her reputation was one of no-nonsense. She was a loving and kind lady that was quite the cook and housekeeper. Clara cooked many years for the noted DuPont Family and she was very creative and a talented decorator that could put together the most beautiful handkerchiefs you have ever seen. She was one that would give you the clothes off her back if you needed them
