Iris Mae Foster, 93, of Cobbs Creek, Virginia passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at Riverside-Walter Reed Hospital. She was a member of Spring Hill Baptist. She loved crocheting, quilting, and caring for children whom she loved with a passion. She loved to watch the birds, but most of all she loved having a house full of friends and family for whom she always prepared and served abundant meals.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Leroy S. Foster and two great-grandsons; Chase Daniels Brown and Andrew Saunders Foster. She is survived by a daughter Dana Brown of Cobbs Creek, Virginia and a son Rev. S. Roy Foster (Melissa Diane) of Tappahannock, Virginia; 4 grandsons, Roland Brown (Robin), Lee Brown, Willie Brown (Trista), and Caleb Foster (Kristen); 4 great-granddaughters, Alyson, Shelley, Kelyn, and Kinsley.

Graveside services will be held at Windsor Gardens Cemetery on Monday, August 5 at 11:00 AM. A reception will follow at Spring Hill Baptist Church following the service. A special thank you to the care team at Heron Cove 2 for their love and compassion for our mom the “social butterfly”.

In lieu of flowers please make memorial donations to Spring Hill Baptist Church, P.O. Box 92, Cobbs Creek, Virginia 23035 or to Upper Essex Church, P.O. Box 225, Caret, VA 22436. Faulkner Funeral Homes, Foster-Faulkner Chapel, Mathews, Virginia is assisting the family with the arrangements.
