I posted the following on Facebook: It saddens me of the passing of Claire Roy. Claire was the Director of Nursing at North Adams Regional Hospital when I started out as an LPN in 1981. I worked the night shift and usually never saw any administrators on my shift..... except for Claire. She would frequently make rounds at 6-6:30 am and always had an open door policy. When she was replaced by someone who could care less about those things, I was heartbroken. As luck would have it, when I decided to go to Southern Vermont College to get my RN degree, Claire was one of my professors. Man was she tough! It was the best time I ever had in school. I learned so much from her because she encouraged me to strive for my best. After having a horrible experience in the North Adams school system, it was great to be valued and treated with kindness and respect. You were a class act Claire, I will miss you!
