Notice Condolences


THOMASINA "SISSY", long time Pennsauken resident of 65 years, peacefully passed away comforted with her family around her at the age of 85 on November 1, 2012 at 2:15 A.M. at the Kennedy Hospital of Cherry Hill, NJ. Sissy had been married for 36 loving years to her husband, pre-deceased Walter "Bud" J. Blair Jr.

The beloved mother of four is survived by her devoted family: sons Walter J. Blair III (Toni), John Blair (Katrina), Donald Blair (Alysia), Edward Blair (Maryanne); grand-children Kristin Sullivan (Rocky), Walter IV, Donald "DJ", Emily, Altariq, Christy, Angela, Mark; great grand-children Matthew Michael, Adrianna, Alissa, Landon, Finn;
nieces Jacqueline Fanelli (Jack) and Iris Matthews (Paul); great niece Iris; great nephew Paul Zachary "PZ".

She was lucky enough to find love a second time with her long time friend and companion pre-deceased Roy Armstrong. She had a loving sister predeceased Iris "Honey" Hartel (Jack). They enjoyed long late night phone calls with each other almost every night of their lives.

Sissy would be best described as a full-time Mom. After raising her four boys, she played a significant role in caring for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. That is what she most enjoyed - family. She loved Broadway Shows, cowboy movies, chocolate ice cream but most of all her often mis-understood faithful dog, Rudy. Grrrrrrr

Relatives and friends of Sissy are invited to attend a viewing on Monday, November 5th, 2012 at ALLOWAY FUNERAL HOME, 315 E. Maple Ave., Merchantville, NJ, from 9:00 to 11:00 A.M., Eulogy will begin at 11:00 A.M. and Burial will follow at the Harleigh Cem., Haddon Ave., Camden, NJ.

The Blair family would like to thank the Kennedy Hospital staff, Vitas Innovative Hospice Care and John Alloway of the Alloway Funeral Home for their warmth, professionalism and caring treatment. They truly did everything they could to support our family through this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Sissy's memory may be made to the .
