In her later years she volunteered her time at the Humane Society of Forsyth County and fostered many cats and dogs preparing them for adoption. Mrs. Blair moved to Jefferson, Georgia in 2016 to be closer to her daughters and continued her active lifestyle, caring for multiple cats and dogs while spreading color with flowers throughout her landscape at home.

Survivors include her daughters, Denise Blair Buffington of Jefferson, GA and Linda Blair Stooksbury (Thomas) of Greensboro, GA. Three grandchildren, Blair Michael Buffington of Woodstock, GA, Clark Herman Buffington of Jefferson, GA and Anna Jean Stooksbury of Brookhaven, GA.
