Louise C. Blair passed quietly and peacefully into her heavenly home late Saturday afternoon, August 8th. She was a resident of Filcare Home in Clearspring, MD. She was the daughter of the late Alpha T. Moser and Ella M. Compher Moser. Being born September 16th, 1919, Louise was just short of her 101st birthday. She was the last member of her immediate family.

She was a 1937 graduate of Middletown High School. She then worked at Guyton's Store in Burkittsville 12 years, NIH Credit Union 13 years and finally retired from Metropolitan Federal Savings & Loan (now BB&T) after 12 years. Louise was a member of Pleasant View Church of the Brethren for over 85 years where she served as a lifetime Deaconess, a Sunday School Teacher and a choir member. She was also a member of the Women's Fellowship and Jolly Knotters.

After retiring Louise joined Citizens Care and Rehabilitation Center Auxiliary, Frederick Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Red Hat Society, Rainbow Belles, Rosehill Garden Club, Gambrill Park Homemakers Club, Thurmont Senior Center Canaries, NARFE, and Senior Monthly Luncheon at AMVETS in Middletown.

Louise loved baking and donating to Bake Sales and the Thurmont Food Bank.

She was preceded in death by her husband Gorden Blair, her three brothers: Floyd Moser, Clark Moser, and John Moser and her one sister: Helen Brown. She also had two half sisters: Nanny Moser, Edith Arnold and one half brother: Wilmer Moser and two foster sisters: Adeline Wise and Mildred Doody.

Louise is survived by her three daughters: Dawn Moser and husband Joe of Thurmont, Glenna Wilcom of Frederick, and Penny Koontz of Middletown. She is also survived by 7 grandchildren Kim Rhoderick and husband Mark, Karen Coats and husband Will, Jeff Wilcom, Traci Lafferty and husband Steve, Dana Remsburg and husband Troy, Nicole Wangness and husband Craig, and Heidi Chisholm.

Her legacy is carried on by 13 great-grandchildren: Todd and Tara Wilcom, Erica and Hayley Lafferty, Colin and Chase Remsburg, Emily and Blair Coats, Paige Roderick, Bailie and Dylan Wangness, Reilly and Brittany Chisholm and many nieces and nephews.

We want to give a very special thanks to Den Espinosa and daughter Nancy for the exceptional and loving care they gave our mother over the years. We would also like to thank Hospice of Washington County.

Private graveside service for family will be officiated by Pastor Linda Lambert .

For those wishing to do so and in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Louise's name to the Thurmont Food Bank at 10 Frederick Road, P.O. Box 74, Thurmont, MD, 21788.

To Louise’s girls,
So sorry to learn of Louise’s passing. Mom and Dad (Lee & Virginia Jacobs) were very good friends with Gordon and Louise. They took a lot of trips together, remember Hawaii? My mother-in-law, Betty Bonner worked at Citizens with her and were very close friends. Dad passed away on July 30, 2020. He also was just shy of his 101 birthday. I’m sending you prayers and hope you know how much we loved Louise too.

Dawn, Glenna & Penny,

Sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. She was very highly respected by my mother, Janice and our whole family. She seemed so much like family. I saw her last at Sam Crones funeral & I thought she looked great. When I left for college she bought my 1955 Ford (not so hot) sedan. I can still see her looking over that steering wheel. Fond memories. Sorry for your loss.

I have so many great memories of Louise, Dawn, Glenna and Penny living in Burkittsville as a child. This is a great picture of her showing her kindness and love in her smile and eyes.

Dear Dawn, Glenna, and Penny,
I wish to extend sincere condolences for the passing of your Mom. I fondly remember the years your Mom worked at Guyton's Store in Burkittsville where she was almost like a member of the family. My parents had great respect for your Mom. For many years she was my Sunday school teacher at Pleasant View Church where she taught love for the scriptures. I still have the tie clasp she gave each boy in her Sunday school class which has a short chain pendant with hanging transparent orb. Inside the orb is a mustard seed to remind us of the biblical parable of the mustard seed. And who could ever forget her homemade root beer and homemade mince pies at Christmas time! Those mince pies were out-of-this-world; so good!
I wish all the best to you and your families.
With sympathy,
Gar Guyton
