Peggy L. Blair

March 11, 1953 — September 3, 2021

Peggy Lee Blair (Knight), Born March 11, 1953 to Peggy Joan Knight (Eager) and Jake Wiley
Knight. She is survived by the love of her life, Timothy Ray Blair, who she met as a teenager.
They were married for nearly 49 years. They have two daughters, who survive, Tracy Colby
(Blair) and Tammy Blair. She is also survived by her four beloved grandchildren, Colton Colby,
Haydan Rausch, Kennedy Colby and Kendall Webb. Peggy was the glue that held this family
together, always planning trips and holiday gatherings. The beach was one of her favorite
destinations, whether visiting family or just enjoying the sunshine. Visiting Gatlinburg in the fall
was another beloved spot. She loved to read, work jigsaw puzzles and watch Jeopardy. She
enjoyed many shopping trips with her girls, including annual Black Friday adventures. She went
on countless trips to Cedar Point, even though she never liked riding roller coasters. Peggy was
always at the heart of any fun being had, even if she was just on the side lines spectating. She
loved watching her grandson and granddaughters play baseball and softball and volleyball. She
enjoyed many swim meets at the YMCA, to watch Colton compete as a swimmer. Nothing
brought her more joy than seeing the successes of her children and grandchildren, having just
attended the high school graduations of both of her granddaughters just three months ago.
Peggy was devoted to her family and to her God. She was unfailingly faithful to God in the face
of disease and adversity. She exemplified grace and courage during her battle against breast
cancer in 2009, and won against that opponent. Upon her retirement from the banking industry,
she became very active and involved at her church home, Cornerstone Alliance Church and
with local non-profit, Leapin’ Ministries. Her fierce spirit to fellowship and volunteer were
present, even in the face of a new diagnosis in 2017. Peggy fought like a warrior for the next
four years. She is also survived by her siblings, John (Connie) Knight and Cindy (James)
Schneider and innumerable nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews from both
sides of the family. Her presence was dearly missed at her 50th class reunion held last month.
The week before her passing, she received a heartfelt card signed by all who were in
attendance. She was an inspiration to all who knew her. She was generous and giving with her
love. She was a beautiful and amazing soul. Her bravery while battling cancer was awe
inspiring. She went to see Jesus on Friday, September 3rd at home surrounded by her loving
family. May she be remembered fondly by all who crossed her path in this life. A Celebration of
Life service will be held at Cornerstone Alliance Church on Monday September 20th at 6:00pm.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the James Cancer and Solove Research Institute.
Affordable Cremation Services of Ohio has been entrusted with the arrangements.
