ALBURGH – Florence B. Blair, 96, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 11, 2019 at her residence in Alburgh with her loving family by her side.
She was born in Alburgh on February 24, 1923 to the late Joseph & Agnes (Blair) Bedard.
Florence graduated from Alburgh High School and was the class valedictorian. She married Romeo Blair and raised their two children in Alburgh. She was a devout Catholic and a lifelong parishioner of Saint Amadeus Catholic Church. Florence was employed by the U.S. Postal Service and retired after 29 years.

She will be remembered for her love of her family.
