Mr. and Mrs. Foster were very active members of the Sheridan Wesleyan Church where she was a music leader for many years.

In retirement, they spent their winters in Naples Fla. Mrs. Foster became a teaching assistant at Child’s Path (Naples Florida) which she enjoyed for 20 years. She loved singing in the Naples First Baptist Church choir especially singing the “Living Christmas Tree” every winter.
