Adair loved life, her family, fine food, connecting with friends, and boating on the Mississippi River. A caregiver at heart, Adair was a caring oncology nurse who became a cancer patient and a compassionate end-of-life care provider who was lovingly cared for at home in hospice the last five months of her own life. She lived her faith as a parish nurse, as a Stephen Minister, and in the way she loved and cared for others.
