They married and moved to Hilton Head Island in 1985 where she began her career in marketing with Sea Pines Resort which included the marketing efforts in launching the TidePointe Community.
The pride and joy of her life was her awesome son Brooks, who with Amie, also gave Blair her grandson Fisher seven weeks ago. Blair was lovingly regarded as a second mom and tutor to many of Brooks’ friends. She enjoyed traveling with family and friends especially to the Keys to take part in her son’s sport fishing career, playing Mahjong with her girlfriends, cooking “memorable meals” with Dave and lighting up the room with her laughter and quick wit. Married for 33 years, the rock of her life was Dave.
