Martha Louise Blair

August 25, 1937 ~ November 14, 2021


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

Martha Louise Bossie Blair danced through the Pearly Gates while holding her daughter’s hand and reaching for the arms of her beloved husband Johnny, who preceded her into the everlasting life. We know she is rejoicing with Jesus Christ and enjoying her new angel wings, and is probably searching for Elvis or a good heavenly thrift store with her newfound freedom.

Martha was happy and loved life. She was a loving and faithful wife to Johnny (d. 2012), mother to Debra Carlton (Dave) of NC, and Randy Blair (d. 1999), loving daughter of Norwood (d. 1980) Carter and Elizabeth Carter (d. 2008) grandmother to Brett Blair, Kristen Blair and Katheryn Graves (Charlie) and best friend to Joyce Guentert. She was a teacher and antique dealer in her younger years. To say she will be missed is an understatement. Her fun loving spirit will remain a legacy. Family and friends near and far are welcome and encouraged to share their favorite memories of her. Whether dancing, shopping, loving on her dog, or junking, Martha was always smiling. She could cook a batch of fried trout better than anybody on this planet! Her hush puppies made your mouth water. And if it sparkled, she wore it.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son, daughter Melanie, brother Roy Carter (Gail) and most of her friends. She often said that getting old wasn’t for the weak. She was a courageous cancer survivor. “You do what you have to do and then get on with life,” she’d say, “The good Lord knows your intentions.” In accordance with her wishes, there will be no funeral. If you feel compelled, make a donation to your favorite charity in her memory. Her heart was touched by children with special needs, rescue animals and anything patriotic. Many thanks to Treasure Coast VNA Hospice, and Cleveland Clinic nurse Ingrid for their loving care and compassion.

Arrangements are by Thomas S. Lowther Funeral Home & Crematory, Vero Beach.

Losing your mom is tough. Just remember the good stuff, the happy times, the gift of herself she gave to you. Life will never be the same without her, but she lives on in you. And Katie. And the ones to follow…

What a dear friend and my former next door neighbor. What a shock because I truly thought she would laugh and beam love in Vero Beach Florida forever. Well Johnny, your sweetheart is home in your embrace again and Miss Betty is happy and content to show her around heaven. This sad old world is even sadder now. Martha, you taught us all to rise above the deepest emotional pain and to have grace fighting physical setbacks. You were a true hero to many generations. Now enjoy your peace and I will continue to rerun all those memories – good food, lots of laughter, loving our babies who all grew up, decorating house and yard and our connecting mailboxes, and your live simple – live free lifelong style.
