Westerville, Ohio
Formerly of Sunbury, Ohio

Sharon A. Satterfield, age 67 of Westerville passed away at Brookdale of Westerville on Saturday, November 5, 2016 surrounded by her family.

She was born on November 12, 1948 in Columbus to the late Paul K. and Dorothy (McLaughlin) Burke.  Sharon was a graduate of Pleasant View High School in 1966.

She retired from Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Wellpoint/Anthem where she worked as a property manager and facilitator.  She was a member of Daughters of Erin and the ladies auxiliary of V.F.W. Post 6065.

At times opinionated, Sharon enjoyed hearing both sides of any argument. Fiercely independent and strong willed.  She enjoyed a passion for golf and searching for four leaf clovers. Her famous chocolate chip cookies and taco dip were not to be missed.  She treasured her family, especially her grandchildren.

She is survived by her sons Dennis (Tami) of Sunbury, Kyle (Sara) Satterfield of Centerburg and Kevin Barbeau  whom she treated like a son, grandchildren Jessica (Ernie), Tyler, Kara, Alyssa, Bronson, Denisan, Christopher, Charles, twin sister Karen Franz of Columbus, and sister-in-law Joanne Burke, nephews Kevin and Brian Burke, and niece Andrea Harkless.

Sharon was also preceded in death by infant son Kyle I, brother Tom Burke and brother-in-law Bob Franz.

  • My heart goes out to the family. I worked with Sharon for years at Anthem/Community Mutual. I miss her upbeat personality and her chocolate chip cookies. Sharon was a great person and will always remember her fondly.

  • Sharon will be missed, we worked on some projects while at Anthem.
    She was a good and caring person and one of a kind.

  • So sorry to hear about my old friend. We used to have lots of laughs, she in Worthington and me in Cincinnati. I remember going to a conference with her in San Francisco and walking the hills in our heels. I was just talking about this trip the other day. I am so sad. My condolences to her family.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I worked with Sharon for 25 years. Her energy and smiles seemed to go on forever. We will miss you at our special birthday lunches, but you will be remembered my friend. Happy Birthday this Friday……..

  • I worked with Sharon for seven years. Although sensitive at times, she was tenacious and able to jump into any situation both at work and elsewhere. She had so many funny situations and stories of her long tenure in Worthington. Two of my favorites were her standing on a snake in the hallway of her building and talking to associates who did not realize the snake a was there. She was trying to keep pandemonium at bey if people saw it. All of this going on while her security guard and other male associates watched from a safe distance. She finally killed the snake and disposed of it. The other story was from a Hallmark store where she witnessed a robbery. She chase the villain down the street, got a license number and helped the police catch the thief. She was a great lady who had the respect of her staff, her coworkers and tenant associates alike. She loved talking about her boys and the grandkids. I know her passing will leave a void in many people’s lives. Rest in peace, Sharon. The train may have left the station but we will hear the whistle for a long time

  • My deepest sympathies to Sharon’s family and all who knew her as friend. I met Sharon when she was Mr. Ketchum’s secretary. Up there in the corner offices she had her finger on the pulse of what was happening. She weathered the mergers and changes with a smile and maybe sometimes a grumble or two. If you had a problem, she was the go to person who knew how to fix it or knew someone who could. I hope memories of Sharon help to soften the loss of her passing.

  • I too knew Sharon from Anthem…for many years. I am saddened that this awesome lady has left us..but she will always be remembered .

  • I was sadden to hear of Sharon’s passing, she was a beautiful lady, coworker and friend to all of us at Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. She will be missed; but we will always keep her in our hearts.

    Blessing to the family,

  • I worked with Sharon at Anthem just like the others have said. I so much enjoyed working with her. She definitively was a person full of energy and a woman on a mission to get things done. My heart goes out to Sharon’s family and pray for comforting hearts. God bless!

  • I have known Sharon for about Sixty years. We grew up together and only lived about 4 house apart. I knew her brother and sister as well. I also worked with her at Anthem for about 20 years. She was a great lady and will be missed. So sorry for your loss.

  • As many other Anthem associates have noted, I too, worked with Sharon for many years. She always had such a big smile on her face everyday. Even when so many changes were taking place, she remained positive. She will be missed by many of us but we have our memories that will live on. Sorry for your loss and am thinking of the family in this sad time.

  • Words can’t express the gratitude in my heart for the mentorship, love and kindness Sharon showed to me. She welcomed me and my family in her home. She was more than a manager, she was my friend. I’ll cherish the good times and laughter we shared. Sharon exemplified the importance of hard work, dedication and commitment. I’m forever grateful for the wisdom she imparted to me and for that, I’m a better person. Sharon always encouraged everyone to have fun and enjoy life. She’s gone but never forgotten. May God comfort you, her precious family in the time of your loss. Our prayers are with you always.

  • For the family of Sharon Satterfield

    My husband was in the same facility as Sharon. I just want to send my sympathies to her family from our family. The Eddey family.

  • I also worked with Sharon for many years till 1995. Yes she was the go to person at work. Also played golf with her from work league. Even after retiring in 1995 if I were to stop I would always try and stop and say Hi to Sharon and chat for a few. Rest in peace Sharon and my sympathies to your family.

  • I began at Blue Shield, now Anthem BCBS in 1976 and Sharon worked in he executive wing for Mr. Ketchum, like so many, Sharon was a great coworker and friend with a heart for people. When Sharon began her job in Facilities, she put her heart and soul into it. She experienced a workout trying to keep Anthem from fines by the Worthington Fire Department for the many times they had to come to our building because some body burned their popcorn in the microwave. No task was too big for Sharon, she was a workhorse. I will miss the long conversations we had when we ran into each other at a store parking lot. Sharon will be missed by so many of her coworkers and friends. How fortunate we all were that God allowed our paths to cross in this lifetime. Blessings to Sharon’s family & Friends.
