BOWERSVILLE — Ciera Nicole Greene, 23, of Bowersville Ohio, passed away Saturday, Nov 15, 2014, with her family by her side. She passed away as the result of a car accident. She was born to Dale and Lorraine Greene on Aug 2, 1991 in Xenia, Ohio. Ciera graduated from Greeneview High School in 2009 and received a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and Jewish Studies from Kent State University in 2012. She entered public service in February of 2013 as a Corrections Officer with the Warren County Sheriff's Office and quickly and exceptionally dedicated herself to this profession making everlasting impressions. Her passion for law enforcement continued when she enrolled into the police academy at Greene County's Criminal Justice Academy in September of this year. She was well on the way to fulfill her dream of becoming a Warren County Deputy Sheriff. Ciera's smile and twinkle in her eyes will be greatly missed. She was fun loving and full of life. She was passionate about making a difference. She was an avid runner and loved playing basketball. Her pets Tater and Theo will miss her immensely. She is survived by her parents, Dale and Lorraine Greene, her brother, Brandon Greene, her grandparents, Sue Greene, Jack and Anna Moore, and aunts, uncles and cousins and a special friend, Steve Back. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Barbara Flora, Bernard Blake, and Jerry Greene. Ciera continued to touch a lot of lives by being an organ donor. A visitation will be held from 5-8 pm on Thurs, Nov 20th at Shawnee Hills Baptist Church, Jamestown, Ohio. Ciera's Last Service will be on Fri at 11 am. Powers Funeral Home is handling all of the arrangements. Instead of flowers, donations can be made to the Child Advocacy Center of Warren County, 100 Campus Loop Road, Franklin, Ohio 45005. A special thanks to Miami Valley Hospital for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Ciera was always a sweetheart in my class. Her smile still resonates in my mind and heart. She was simply unforgettable and I pray for her family during this shocking loss. She was a beautiful girl with sparkling eyes. Rest in peace, sweet angel Ciera.

To the Greene Family,

We uplift you in our prayers in the tragic loss of Ciera! She was such a wonderfully bright, caring and giving young woman who will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Ciera was a student in my Comparative Religious Thought course, always working quietly but diligently. She was on the trip to Israel with us in 2012, again quietly taking the full experience in, with boundless energy and enthusiasm for what was next. In the brief years of her life, Ciera managed to live completely, always striving to fulfill her dreams. Not everyone can do in a lifetime what Ciera did in hers, albeit all too brief. May God bless and comfort you through healing tears and blessed memories. We lift you up for that peace which only God can give through faith, hope and love.

To the Greene Family, you have my deepest sympathy. May God give you the needed strength to endure, during this difficult time (1 Corinthians 10:13.)

I didn't know Ciera well, but was blessed to be one of her firearms instructors at the police academy. Teasing her about her pink ear protection one of the first days I worked with her, I called her "Pink." Without missing a beat, and still shooting, she glanced over her shoulder at me with a big grin and a twinkle in her eyes and said, "Actually, sir, it's 'Greene'." I immediately knew I would like her.

Ciera was a bright and motivated cadet, but most importantly, a good person. To her family and friends, I offer my deepest condolences, and I also thank you for sharing Ciera with us for the short time we got to know her. I'll always remember her.
