Obituary: Rochelle Annette Smith Blair, 68, dies in Florida
A native of Columbia, she was a business owner, the daughter of former Columbia City Clerk Frances Pickard, and the niece of the late Earl Conover.
Rochelle Annette Smith Blair, 68, died August 14, 2006, in Jacksonville, FL, and will be sadly missed.
She was born and raised in Columbia, KY. She owned her own business, along with her son and daughter-in-law, for the past 25 years. Before starting her business, she was a free-lance reporter and worked on several high profile stories.
She was most proud of her grandsons, who brought much joy and laughter to her life.
She was also very proud and spoke often of the Conover family history, especial of her "Unc" Earl Conover, a highly honored WWII veteran, and of her mother, Frances Conover Pickard retired City Clerk of Columbia. Her other loves were her dogs, which she consider her "babies."
Her son, Joseph Edward Blair, whose ashes will be buried along with her, preceded her in death. Also preceding her in death were the love of her life, Raymond Lee Blair; her beloved mother, Frances Conover Pickard; her father Wyatt Smith, and her beloved uncle, Earl Conover.
She is survived by her son, Keven Wyatt Blair and daughter-in-law, Brenda Sue; grandsons Wyatt Raymond Blair and Devin Joseph Blair who called her "Munner"; and aunt, Clara Conover; and cousins Dennis and Sallie Conover and Clifford and Betty Sue Conover Jasper.
A graveside service will be Sunday, August 27, 2006, at 1:00pm CT, at Columbia Cemetery with Rev. David Alexander officiating and burial to follow.
There will be no visitation.
Grissom Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
