BLAIR, Karen Elizabeth (née DEWOLF)
Wife, mother, volunteer, marathon runner, blood donor, advocate of the happy hour. Born April 30, 1958, in Peterborough, Ontario Died April 9 in Peterborough, of colon cancer, aged 48.
By Jacqueline WELLS, Page L8
Karen was the youngest of four children born to Stan and Alice DEWOLF.
Wolfie, as she was affectionately known, grew up in the south end of Peterborough, Ontario, and after attending college worked for many years in the local Sears store.
With her gift of the gab (inherited from her sharp-witted mother), Karen never had difficulty making Friends.
She met her husband, Bill BLAIR, while the two were vacationing with Friends in the Caribbean. Bill worked as an accountant on Bay Street, but within a short period of time Karen persuaded him of the lifestyle benefits of the Kawartha Lakes region.
Bill moved to Peterborough and married Karen. They had two sons, Taylor and Connor. There was nothing Karen enjoyed more then watching Taylor swing a golf club or Connor handle a hockey stick.
Always a sports enthusiast, she took up distance running after the birth of the boys. Her interest wasn't about setting personal-best times, but rather about motivating others to be the best they could be.
On her first trip to run in the Boston Marathon, she brought along some girlfriends who, until then, were not runners.
They cheered Karen on, and when she completed her race she corralled all of them and hobbled off to the nearest bar, where she led the whole bar in a spirited rendition of O Canada. Those gals were hooked and are all avid runners today.
In February, 2006, Karen was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer that had spread to her liver. She had surgery and began biweekly chemotherapy in Toronto.
She fought hard. One, two, sometimes three people accompanied Karen to her treatments. I remember her sitting cross-legged in her hospital bed receiving chemotherapy- and she had everyone within earshot laughing hysterically.
Karen found strength in what brought her joy. She relished small pleasures, a cold Corona or a glass of Wolf Blass. She lived passionately, gave with kindness, loved completely, made you laugh until you couldn't stop, and gave blood every 56 days - always bringing along a new recruit.
In February, she was told there was nothing further the doctors could do. Karen went home and planned her own funeral; she phoned people asking them to be pallbearers, readers and singers.
She spent her last few weeks welcoming people into her home to share stories, memories and, of course, laughter.
Karen did a beautiful job of paving the way for the rest of us. The last time I saw her, she told me she loved me and said: "If you can get up each day and put two feet on the floor, it's a good day."
Jacqueline WELLS is Karen's friend.
