Vita Geraci Blair

Vita Geraci Blair, 82, was taken to a better place in heaven to be in God's arms on Wednesday, February 5, 2020.  Vita was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on September 27, 1937.  She lived in places far and wide, including Anchorage, Alaska; Ventura, California; and Chalmette, Louisiana.  She resided in Pearl River, Louisiana since 1982.  Vita was the beloved wife of the late William Martin Blair Sr. and is survived by her son, William Martin Blair Jr.  Vita was also the adoring grandmother of Emily A. Blair and Nicholas W. Blair, who enjoyed visiting and experiencing many trips and special events with their Nonie.  She also enjoyed a close and special relationship with her daughter-in-law, Andrea Aertker Blair.  Vita was the daughter of the late Jacob and Maxie Hurst Geraci.  She is survived by four siblings, Jacob Geraci, Christine Ladner, Charlene Geraci, and Carmella Geraci.  She is preceded in death by siblings Jerry Wilson, Joseph Geraci, Paul Geraci, Vina (Lacy) Musgrove, and Violet Serpas.  Vita had special relationships and bonds with her numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, her many teaching colleagues, and especially with her very special Pokeno, Poker, and Bridge families.  Family, friends, grandchildren, her animals, and a love of God were Vita’s priorities in life, and this was exemplified in her fervent love of life and faith in the Lord.  She also was dedicated to her career as a teacher with St. Bernard Parish and St. Tammany Parish.  Family and friends will greatly miss her kindness and vibrant personality.  Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend a memorial service and visitation at Audubon Funeral Home located at 61101 Highway 11 in Slidell on Saturday, February 15, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with a service to follow in the chapel at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Vita Geraci Blair to American Humane Society or the Scholarship American.  Memories and condolences may be expressed at www.AudubonFuneralHome.com
