Donna Marie T. Blair, 68, longtime resident of Maine and New York, passed away unexpectedly at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston MA on Monday, September 13, 2021.
Born on October 23,1952 in Glens Falls, NY the fourth of five children to Samuel Thomas and Dorothy 'Dot' (Smith) Blair of Lake George, NY.
Donna was predeceased by her parents and three of her siblings, Sandra 'Sandy' Albarran of Florida, Wayne Blair of California and Darlene 'Dolly' Robinson of New York. She is survived by her sister Colleen Flewelling of New York, her former husband Terry G. Hobbs Sr of New York and her three sons and daughters in law, Terry 'TJ' and Jayme (Tucker) Hobbs Jr of New York, Thomas and Jessica (Brackett) Hobbs of New Hampshire, Timothy and Elizabeth 'Libby' (Johnsen) Hobbs of Maine. Donna also leaves behind her six grandchildren Nathan, Kaley, Timothy Jr, Trevor, Elizabeth 'Izzy' and Lincoln Hobbs and countless cousins, nieces and nephews. Along with many friends she treasured all around the globe.
When your home town is a sought after vacation destination like Lake George, public interaction is plentiful. Donna's parents owned and operated Blair's Grocery in Lake George Village tucked within the Adirondack Mountain Range. So early on Donna interacted with folks young and old from across the United States and Canada.
After attending Lake George High School, Donna married and started her family. She naturally gravitated to a line of work where her personality shined. The hospitality industry was a great fit for Donna. As she loved the conversational atmosphere that came along with her favorite occupation, waitressing wherever life took her around the country. Yet second to none was her love of the restaurants back in her home town, Lake George, New York.
Among the many things that will be evident in Donna's absence, her wit and charm are atop that list. Her humorous nature came through as strong as her caring side amid a single conversation with her.
At Donna's request, there will be no formal services held. Family and friends are welcome to attend an outdoor Celebration of Life honoring Donna at a private residence in Wells, Maine on Saturday, September 25, 2021 from 12-3pm. Please contact the family for the address. Arrangements are entrusted to the amazing and caring folks at the Johnson Funeral Home in North Berwick, Maine.
