In memory of
Doscina Cash Pendleton died peacefully Christmas Day, Friday, Dec. 25, 2020, in Bradenton, Fla., after a strong-fought battle with various health issues. From a young age, Doscina was very self-driven and determined to seek new professional heights for an African-American female. She let nothing stop her as she enlisted in the Air Force, where she was immediately chosen to serve as a head flight attendant for the most prominent flights of military officers. While serving, she put herself through college, where she graduated top of her class with a bachelors degree in business administration. After an honorable military discharge, she was hired by the USPS and immediately placed in a position in the corporate offices of the New York metro area. She worked under the head postmaster before being transferred to the Newark, N.J. area, where she consistently received promotions until she became head of the human resources department. At that time, she held the highest-ranking position for a female of any race. She was being considered for a head postmaster position just before retiring in October of 1999. She was always held in high respect by friends, family and members of her community. She is survived by a son, Dana Jones (Patricia); three granddaughters, Alexus Jones, Shontae Gray and Jennifer Finley; four great-grandsons, Christopher Finley, Jayceon Finley, Chance Finley and Jax Finley; five sisters, the Rev. Emily Cash, Rhonda Cash, Cynthia (Reggie) Smith, Carolyn Cash and Sarah Cash; and four brothers, Lance (Star) Cash, Mark (Torrea) Cash, Corey Cash and Dennis Cash. Doscina was predeceased by her mother, Sarah Coles Cash; her father, Robert Cash Sr.; her brother, Robert Cash Jr.; her brothers, Duane Cash, Carl Cash; and her sisters, Clara Cash and Sharon Cash. Services will be privately held. Donations to the American Cancer Society are preferred in lieu of flowers.
