Shari Lyn Blair, 48, of Columbus, TX passed away tragically in an auto accident July 10 2015. Shari was born and raised in Brazoria County and lived here most of her life, graduating from Brazoswood High School in 1985. She was an avid athlete in many sports, including softball, volleyball, and track. She loved going to Astros games with her son Michael; and she was a huge Texans fan and had a great friendly rivalry with her family - the majority of whom were huge Cowboys fans.
Shari loved her family and enjoyed family gatherings and outings, listening to music and singing along with her uncle Ronnie (neither of whom could carry a tune). She was a published and accomplished poet. She enjoyed going to Trevat to visit her dad and Billie every chance she got. In the last year she had moved to Columbus to work for her mother and stepfather in a new business they had just opened.
Shari touched many hearts throughout her life with a beautiful smile and a gentle heart. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
