Nancy Bair


Nancy Kay Bair was born October 6, 1943 in Shattuck, Ok and passed away on September 14, 2019 in Wilmington, North Carolina.

She was the 4th child of Helen Blasdel (Bert) and Paul Bair. She grew up on a farm east of Buffalo, Ok. Nancy attended schools at Selman Schools and later began her college career at Oklahoma College for Women, Chickisha, Ok. She later transferred to Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK where she received a degree in psychology. It is there where she met her future husband, Travis W Jones. They spent time in Germany where Travis served in the military. Once stateside they would make their home in Southern California, where he owned a veterinary hospital.
Upon her son’s Stacey graduation from UC Santa Barbara, she moved to Charlotte NC where he made his home. Eventually she migrated to Wilmington, where she lived her best life.
Hobbies and outside interest loomed large in Nancy’s life. She loved traveling, reading, volunteering, and very much involved with ecological and environmental concerns.
She was fun, funny, smart, feisty, classy, and always in the know. She leaves a tremendous void in the hearts of all that knew her.

She was predeceased by her parents Paul and Helen Bair, husband Travis, son Alan Todd, and brothers Duane and Bill.

She leaves behind son Stacey and wife Tina, grandson Jeremy and granddaughter Kaylynn, sister Paula Jean, brother Robert, her beloved fur babies Rufus and Teddy, and a host of relatives and friends.

    I am very sorry to learn of Nancy's passing. I worked with Nancy in a professional capacity over the past few years and always enjoyed our conversations and interactions. Nancy was always very thoughtful, intelligent, and cared for the well being of others in the community and beyond. When we last spoke she had just spent some quality time with her grandson over his spring break and was very excited about that. I am very sad to learn that we will not have any more of those conversations. It was a great pleasure and honor to have known Nancy.

    I was sad to hear that Nancy was gone. I remember her as one of the first people I met in the secular community in Wilmington. She always had wonderful stories to share about her travels, and she was one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. Her laughter was infectious, and she was fearless. Nancy loved her dogs and spoiled them shamelessly. How lucky we were to know her. My condolences go out to her family, especially her grandson whom she loved so much.
