Emilie E. Foster, 85, passed peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus, surrounded by her family on November 4, 2020. She was born in Margaretville, NY to William and Beth Hylander.
She was an administrator and business partner with her husband for over 30 years. She was an amazing, wonderful Mom! She was known for being a gentle, kind and very wise woman filled with compassion for people, especially the hurting. Her lifestyle reflected her love for Jesus and treated people like she would want to be. She taught her children to love the Lord. She taught us and those around her to always put Jesus first and everything else in life will fall into place (Matthew 6:33).
Besides her parents, Emilie was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, veteran William A. Foster and son, William J. Foster. She is survived by her daughters, Jo McGuffin (Steve) and Sharon McCrary (Mike), her grandchildren, Jordan, Sean (Monica), Stephanie (David), Chris and Brandon, and four great-grandchildren. She is survived by two sisters, Ruth Starritt (Odis), Sanger, TX, and Alice Naczi, Floral City, FL. She is also survived by numerous nephews, nieces and their families.
Emilie will be buried in Farmington, NM, next to her late husband. She is now at rest in heaven because she chose Jesus to be her Lord and Savior. We are grateful for hope found only in Him.
