BrynnLey Sage Jo Blair

June 14, 2016 – March 1, 2022

BrynnLey Sage Jo Blair, 5, passed away Tuesday, March 1, 2022, at St. Vincent Health Care in Billings from respiratory failure due to chronic lung disease.

BrynnLey was born June 14, 2016, in Billings. She was the daughter of Jacob and KayLoni (Bybee) Blair. She joined one sister, Cambria, and two brothers, Jonah and Mark. When BrynnLey was 2 her younger sister, Abi Jo, joined the family. She was thrilled to be a big sister, especially enjoying Abi singing to her. All of BrynnLey’s siblings were special care givers of her and very protective of her.

Although her life was short on this earth, it was full of many enjoyable activities with her loving families. She enjoyed music, especially hearing her dad play the guitar as her mother sang. She was definitely a “papa’s girl” with all her papas. She enjoyed playing with her many cousins and other children in kindergarten.

Her hair was her pride and joy. The sound of wind in the trees, feeding birds and camping were also things she enjoyed. Mickey Mouse was a favorite. 

No matter what trial or challenge BrynnLey went through, she always had a smile, and we know BrynnLey wants us to remember her strength and follow her example of hope and love.  

Brynn was preceded in death by her grandfather, William Blair; great-grandparents Dale and Loretta Peden, Patricia Stephenson, Errol Workman Sr. and Emil Brost; great-aunt Kandi Wilkinson; and aunt Brandi Good.  

She is survived by her parents, Jacob and KayLoni Blair; siblings Cambria, Jonah, Mark and Abi Jo; grandparents Amy and Jason Krueger, Billy and LaLoni Flinn, Brian and Brigette Bybee and Henry and Taushia Peden; great-grandparents Gary and Jan Olheiser, Jay and Diana Brost, John Blair and Bob Stephenson; great-great-grandmothers Patsy Brost, Barbara Workman and Belle Flinn; and numerous extended families.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, March 12, at 10 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Thermopolis with burial at Monument Hill Cemetery. Following the burial a luncheon and memorial will be held at Agape Set Free Church, 245 Hwy. 120 West. The family has requested that bright colors, especially purples and greens, be worn.
