Diana Lee (Ewing) Blair of Poteet, went home to be with our Lord and Savior on February 15, 2018 at the age of 76.
Diana married the love of her life, Bill Blair June 18, 1960. Bill and Diana maintained their love for each other and continued their playful demeanor up until the time of his death. They have at last been reunited.
Diana had a playful personality that was evident within minutes of meeting her. Diana lived her life as an animal lover. She could be found any evening either working in her garden or working with some sort of animal (cat, dog or fowl).
Diana had a knack for working with children. She was a teacher for First Baptist Church of Pleasanton’s Child Development Center for the 2 year-olds, from their inception to her retirement in 2005. She enjoyed the foundation she and her co-workers created for these children and would at times arrive at home continuing to talk and sing like a two year old.
Diana is survived by her daughter, Leigh Ann (Blair) Gonzales and husband Martin; granddaughters, Ashleigh Zuniga and husband Andrew and Brooke Delgadillo and husband Juan and grandson, Nathaniel Gonzales. She is also survived by numerous other nieces and nephews.
Diana is preceded in death by her loving husband of 56 years, Bill Blair; parents, Ernest and Irene Ewing; brother, Homer R. Baxter, II and her sister, Peggy Ann Williams.
A memorial service in Diana’s honor will be held in the small chapel of First Baptist Church of Pleasanton at 400 North Reed Street on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 11 a.m. Her service will be led by Pastor John Coleman.
