"Nini's" door was always open and her home was the gathering place for everyone. She was a volunteer Pink Lady at BFMC, loved her flowers in her garden, and was always taking pictures of her family.

Grateful for having shared her life are her 6 children, Deborah Belcher of Bluefield, Virginia, Raymond E. Bray and his wife, Chris of Honoye Falls, New York, Mary Jane Marcone of Edgewater, Patricia Shaffer and her husband, Michael of New Smyrna Beach, Thomas J. Bray and Kim, and Tami Fuhrmann and her husband, Todd, all of Edgewater; 16 grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; and 1 sister, Dolores Blanqui. She will also be missed by her kitty, Toula and Yorkie, Rascal, and 12 other family Yorkies. Mrs. Blair was predeceased by her parents, Ludger and Dorothy Galipeau, sister, Madeline Popp, brother Jackie Galipeau, and her husband of 30 years, Harold Blair.
