Christine J. Blair

Christine J. Blair, 65, was born in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 7, 1949.  She made the journey to heaven on Aug. 17, 2014, with her family by her side.

She was self-employed, smart, beautiful and classy, could set her mind to do anything and was kind to people.  She loved to sew, taking photos of memories, her home, camping, hunting, fishing, her dog Eli, to listen and dance to music and most importantly she cherished her family.

Her brain tissue has been donated to Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Pathology Dementia Research Laboratory to help and hopefully ‘End Alzheimer’s’.

She is survived by her husband, Ray L. Blair of 46 years; daughters, Melissa Blair and Jennifer Blair; son, Ashley Blair; grandsons, Brody, Branson and Bowen Blair; sister-in-law, Sue McLeod.

She is preceded in death by her father, Ben McLeod; brothers, Wayne McLeod and Terry McLeod.

Private services will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Alzheimer’s association/ Your gift will make a difference in the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and support research to improve treatment, care and prevention.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
