Linda, it is hard to believe that it is now 5 years since you left.  Lily and Wesley still a joy for us to see and share time with.  Both busy with school, job and Lily planning a wedding in a year.  She is so happy with her gown loves to try it on and looks beautiful.  I bet you can see all this.  Wesley still moving fast doing his thing with your car the Infinity and the Jag.  I think he is now taller then you.  We keep Fritz a lot.  He is our grand dog we really enjoy him.  He loves to come here and stay several days.
Once again Linda I wish you were here with your kids but life had different plans for all.

Linda Jean (L.J.) Blair

L.J. was born to Wesley and Dorine Blair on August 25, 1963, in Ada, Oklahoma.  On March 25, 2017, L.J. peacefully left her life on this Earth to reunite with her family, where she was greeted by her parents and sisters, Leslie and Joani.

Following her childhood dream of driving a bookmobile, L.J. worked in municipal libraries and non-profit organizations where she introduced children to exciting worlds found in books.  She made books come alive with her great storytelling and fabulous costumes. Her most memorable characters were a cluster of grapes and a green dinosaur.  L.J. was also passionate about birds, trees, and flowers; she fulfilled this love through her position in the United States Forestry Service and her Horticulture degree from Oklahoma State University.

One of L.J.’s favorite places to go was Groovy’s where she would dance with her supportive and loving friends. She could never resist songs such as “Brick House” by the Commodores and “Let’s Groove” by Earth Wind & Fire.

L.J. is survived by the loves of her life, her children Lily and Wesley Lacina; nieces Andrya McCormick and husband, Thad; Amy Kellner and husband, Shail; her great nephews Tytan and Tobyn McCormick; and her wonderful friends who brought so much joy to her life.

In honor of L.J., we ask you to read a book to a child to spread her love of a book’s magic or increase the beauty in the world by planting a tree or flowers.  The family has requested that in lieu of flowers at her service, memorials be given to the education fund for L.J.’s children (Lily and Wesley Lacina) at Oklahoma State Bank in Guthrie, OK.  For more information regarding the education fund, please contact Katye Fry or Lisa Brown at 405-260-2265.

L.J.’s family would like to thank all of her friends and family who visited her in the hospital, sent cards, flowers, or prayed.

Her life celebration will be held on April 8, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. in the Ed Lycan Conservatory located at 3400 N.W. 36th Street, Oklahoma City, OK.

Even though her time on Earth has passed, we know she’s still grooving and her contagious laughter is filling the air. Until we meet again…
