Sara D. Blough

Aug. 28, 1947 – March 31, 2011

NATCHEZ — Services for Sara D. Blough, 63, of Natchez, who died Thursday, March 31, 2011, at Natchez Regional Medical Center, will be at 11 a.m. today at Laird Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev. Ed Temple officiating.

Burial will be at a later date at the Natchez National Cemetery under the direction of Laird Funeral Home.

Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until service time today at the funeral home.

Sara was a 1965 graduate of Natchez-Adams High School and a graduate of Mississippi State University with a degree in elementary education. She taught school in Pensacola, Fla., and in Natchez at Prince Street Elementary School. She also taught school at Bramlett Elementary School in Oxford and earned her master of education degree from the University of Mississippi.

Sara was a faithful and loving wife and a devoted mother to her sons, Jaime and Christian. She was reared in the First Baptist Church in Natchez and was stolen away in marriage to the Jefferson Street United Methodist Church where she served as a Vacation Bible School teacher and catered a number of luncheon meetings of the United Methodist Women. For a number of years she was an active member of the Natchez Junior Auxiliary and Cathedral Fall Festival volunteer.

Sara loved Bruce Springsteen, rock and roll music and cooking, probably in that order. She owned and operated her own catering business, with the first event being the wedding reception for her sister, Kirby and her husband, Henry. She catered large and small events all over Adams County. Her last events included large wedding receptions in Adams County, Concordia Parish and Tensas Parish. These events will be remembered for a lot of hard work and a lot of fun. Thank you to all who participated.

Sara is survived by her husband, Jim C. Blough; two sons, Jaime C. Blough and wife, Kathy, of Conway, Ark., and Christian K. Blough of Baton Rouge; two grandsons, Jackson Blough and Cooper Blough, also of Arkansas; and one sister, Kirby D. Watts and husband, Henry, and their children, Weston and Mackenzie, all of Natchez.

Pallbearers will be Tom Bailey, Everette Ratcliffe, Melton King, Charlie Vess, Doug McCallister, Daniel J. O’Beirne, Ron Jinkins and Tommie O’Beirne.

Honorary pallbearers will be The Over the Hill Gang.

Following the services, friends are invited to join the family at 800 Lindberg Ave., Natchez.

Memorials may be sent to Jefferson Street United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 862, Natchez, MS 39121, Natchez-Adams County Humane Society or to a charity of choice.

A special thank you to Dr. Kenneth W. Stubbs and to his nurses and staff for their professional care and service to Sara and to her family and to the staff of Natchez Regional Medical Center.
