Written by David Green.

Blaire C. Bohs, 74, of Adrian, Mich., died Jan. 20, 2007 at Lynwood Manor.

She was born Sept. 6, 1932 in Adrian, to Maynard C. and Edna Mae Derby Minier. She married Richard S. Bohs and he survives.

Blaire was an English teacher with Adrian Public Schools, retiring after 30 years of service. She was a member of the West Adrian United Church of Christ and enjoyed playing the organ and singing. Her family was her pride and joy, she loved spending time with them. She liked to play golf, was an avid reader and was always seeking new and challenging ways to gain knowledge.

Besides her husband, she is survived by a daughter, Cathy (and Doug) Fox of Morenci; two sisters, Carol (and Jack) Wyman of Brooklyn and Janice (and Jack) Stevenson of Addison; three grandchildren, Caleb (and Abbie) Fox, Jenna (and Erik) Mepham and Aimee (and Josh) Sutherland; and one great-granddaughter, Aubree.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

Cremation has taken place. Visitation is scheduled from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, at Anderson Funeral Home in Adrian. A private burial service is planned in Oakwood Cemetery.
