Elva Blair Obituary

Williamsport, MD – Elva Marie Blair, 90, of Williamsport, MD and formerly of Clear Spring, MD passed away on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, at Coffman Nursing Home Hagerstown, MD. She was a loving, caring, devoted mother and grandmother who always sacrificed for her family without hesitation, always doing her best.

She was born on January 4, 1934, in Hancock, MD to the late Marvin Clayton Mason and Marie Virginia Ingram McCarty.

Elva was a 1951 graduate of Hancock High School Hancock, MD.  She attended Columbia Business Hagerstown, MD.

Herbert American Legion Post #222 Clear Spring, Clear Spring Restaurant and East End Tavern both in Clear Spring, MD.

Elva enjoyed life, singing, dancing, laughing and being her ornery self, making others happy. She loved smiling, showing off her dimples. Taking care of her family was her greatest achievement.  She loved her daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter more than words can say. She was so proud they all shared her middle name of Marie.

She is survived by her daughter Vikki M. Fox and her husband Rusty who she thought of as a son of Williamsport, MD; granddaughter Amy M. Merritt and her husband Alexander and great granddaughter Elliana M. Merritt of Westminster, MD.
