Mrs. J. S. Blair.
At 3:50 Sunday morning at the family home on east Columbus avenue, the death of Mrs. J. S. Blair occurred, after an illness of two years from paresis, confining her to the indoors since April last.
Hers was a long period of illness but all that could be done by the family to lighten the hours of confinement was done and the presence of the daughter Ulla was the mother’s constant comfort. Everything else was made secondary to mother’s needs and wishes by the loving daughter and this was more to the patient invalid than her words could express. With her also, beside the family, day and night for many months was Miss Ewing, a niece who nursed her tenderly and lovingly.
Elizabeth Anne Ewing was born Oct. 23, 1824, in East Liberty, being of the family of 14 children of John Ewing. She married Dr. J. W. Johnson Oct. 5, 1842, and to them four children were born of whom Mrs. Ernestine Titsworth, of Mt. Victory, in the survivor. Dr. Johnson died Oct. 6, 1850, and on June 3, 1852, Mrs. Johnson was married to Dr. J. S. Blair, their home being in Zanesfield, and five children being born to them. Of these Frank Moody died at 8 years in Mt. Victory and the survivors are S. K., of Fort Wayne, Ind., Will F. of Evansville, Ind., Horace of the Bellefontaine Fire Department, and Miss Ulla who lives at the family home.
One brother, Oliver Ewing, lives in Dayton, and one half-brother, Napoleon Garwood, lives in West Liberty.
Rev. Blair and wife lived at many places during his activity as a Methodist minister, in Mt. Victory, North Fostoria, Bellecenter, Springhill, and other places, and came here first in 1870. Living here a short time they went away and came back in 1876 and built the home on east Columbus where they have resided ever since.
Mrs. Blair united when 12 years old, in East Liberty, with the M. E, church, under George W. Walker, and to that faith was steadfast to the end.
The above are the facts in the history of Mrs. Blair’s life but of her usefulness, her cheerfulness, her genuineness and her devotion to her family and friends more can be said. She was of the type of women who stamp their individuality plainly. She was helpful in marked degree to her husband when he was an active gospel preacher, and at all times, and to her children she was a loving mother and a constant friend. As a neighbor she was more than the word implies in this day and kindness and helpfulness were her strong characteristics. She was entertaining company and her quaint sayings were many, and well remembered is her wit and good humor. She was intelligent and no one in need was ever refused help by her if she could possibly give it.
In the 55 years of their married life the death of their son Frank was the only death in the family of Rev. J. S. Blair and wife.
Dr. C. R. Havighurst will conduct the funeral at 3 Tuesday afternoon, Revs. Bigley and Swank assisting. Interment in the city cemetery.
