My condolences to the Foster family. Matthew 5:4 says: “Happy are those who mourn, since they will be comfort” showing that God knows your pain and will comfort you and your family in your time of need. I hope this comfort you.

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Mary Foster.Mary was such a special lady and wonderful person. I grew up in Shiloh and knew both Mary and her family. Mary was more like a mom to my kids than a babysitter,especially Kelly. We always tried to see her when we returned to Shiloh for a visit. She was loved by so many people and will be forever missed.

I will always have warm memories of Mary. Her family and friends have been made rich by having her in their lives. She was a great mom and second mom to so many and a great woman to help build the character of her children, grandchildren and the children of Shiloh. She opened her home to me when I was young, made me feel welcome and fed me well. With there son Barry, she and Harry gave me one of the greatest gifts a person can have – a lifetime friend. Thank you Mary for so much more you have given us than you will ever know. May God Bless you and give you peace through eternity.

Mary will be forever missed- She has made an impact on so many lifes! I will never forget all of the times I spent with her as a child and continued to visit her as a grew. She was one of a kind and an awesome babysitter! Will miss seeing her and visiting her during the ox Roast to take her potato salad and pie with Brittany Rietschlin.

Mary was a wonderful lady. My children loved and respected her and Harry. They considered her their second Mom. I don’t know what I would have done without her and Harry. Rest in the peace from all that loved you. Sue, Jamie and Christopher.

I will miss you forever, and never forget you. I will always be able to see you standing in the window when I am at Mom & Dad’s waving back. Generations of children grew up loving you, me included. If any one deserved their wings, it was you. Hugs and Prayers for your family.

What a truly special lady . . . always a treat to visit when we got back to Shiloh. Our son Ryan especially loved her wit, and her stories could go on forever. She was a joy to be around, and will be missed by our family. Actually, Mary will be missed by the entire community!
