“Grace, kindness, patience, faith in God, dedication to family … these are the words that come to mind when I think of Jane Blair,” says President Marcia Hawkins, Ph.D. “Our community will feel her loss for a long time to come, but we rejoice with her as she is reunited with her husband, Doug, and daughter, Nancy.”

Mrs. Blair leaves behind a legacy of philanthropy and commitment to both the college and community.

“Throughout the years, the Blair family have been incredible supporters of both the Barbourville community and Union College,” says Brian Strunk, Executive Director of Advancement. “Union College was blessed to have Jane so involved with the college for so many years. We will miss her friendly smile, her warm demeanor, and her Christian spirit.”
