Lois Irene (Hull) Sears passed peacefully on January 8, 2022 at Cumberland Nursing and Rehab in Somerset, Kentucky. She had recently celebrated her 94th birthday. Mrs. Sears was born in Fentress County, Tennessee on December 15, 1927 to Elmer and Myrtle (Tompkins) Hull, the fifth of eight children. After moving to Ohio, she met Willie D. “Bill” Sears, whom she married on July 2, 1948 in Rossville, Georgia. They were blessed with three children, and moved from Dayton, Ohio to Poplarville, near Somerset. They celebrated 60 years of marriage before his death in 2008 and together adored their eight grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
