Obituary for Regina Bragg Blair

Regina’s compassion for others will always remain with us. She passed away peacefully, after a short illness, on December 7th, 2022, at the age of 68 surrounded by her husband, daughter, granddaughters, sisters, and close friends.

Regina was a lifelong learner, earning a PhD in Educational Psychology with a major in Special Education from the University of Oklahoma in 2003. Regina had a strong passion for those with disabilities inspired by having a sister with special needs at home. She spent many years as an educator in Oklahoma City, Norman, and Choctaw and earned the honor of teacher of the year. As a Professor, she worked with aspiring teachers in Special Education at the University of Oklahoma, University of Texas, and University of Houston.

Regina married her best friend Alan Weitz Blair in 1972. They have lived their life to the fullest ever since. Both Regina and Alan loved the outdoors and traveled extensively together camping and hiking the most beautiful places in the country and scuba diving together. Regina loved her friends and family fiercely. She was always the first to offer guidance and did it with genuine compassion. Her husband, daughter and granddaughters were the light of her life. 

She enjoyed spending time with her family in her home state of Georgia, gardening, creating all types of art, and cooking. There was always some of “Gina’s” lasagna in the freezer and her pecan pie on the table at every holiday. 

Regina was born on December 9th, 1953, to Reginald and Alma Bragg in Statesboro, Georgia. She is preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Barbara Sue Bragg and her son-in-law, R. Shane Keim. Regina is survived by her spouse, Alan; daughter Alison Rose Keim, granddaughters Briar and Peyton Keim, all from Oklahoma City and sisters, Christine Smith, Mary Buie and brother-in-law Ben Buie from Brooklet, Georgia.
