BLET mourns loss of National Division staff accountant Denise Sears

CLEVELAND, July 11 — The National Division is saddened to announce the passing of our colleague, staff accountant Denise Sears following a long battle with illness on July 3, 2014. She was 60 years old.

Denise is survived by her beloved son, Joshua Allen, grandson Joshua Allen, Jr., father and stepmother, James and Sylvia Hill, Sr., sisters Terrie Kelly and Deborah (Stephen) Howard and brother James Hill, Jr. She leaves behind many loving cousins and friends. Denise is preceded in death by her mother and stepfather, Janet and Robert Allen and brother, Anthony Hill.

Born in Dayton, Ohio on May 15, 1954, Denise was a long-time resident of Solon, Ohio. She was a 1972 graduate of Roth High School and a 1976 graduate of Central State University. Denise began working in the BLE Compliance Department during September of 2001. In 2006 she moved to the Accounting Department where she took on a diverse group of essential responsibilities, many affording service to and interaction with members and employees, which is what she enjoyed the most. Denise was also an avid basketball fan especially when her son, Joshua was a star center and power forward for the Solon Comets high school team.

“Denise was a dedicated member of our Brotherhood staff for many years,” BLET National President Dennis R. Pierce said. “She was a great person with a wonderful sense of humor and will be sorely missed. I extend deepest sympathies to her family and loved ones during this difficult time.”

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the House of Wheat Funeral Home located at 2107 North Gettysburg Avenue in Dayton, Ohio. Please be aware that National Division employees may be unavailable on the 15th as many of them will be attending these services out of respect for Denise’s years with the BLET.
