May 12, 1941 ~ February 1, 2022
Born in: Greenville, SC
Resided in: Candler, NC
Carolyn Loretta Foster, 80, of Candler, was called home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, at the CarePartners Solace Center, surrounded by her children.
Carolyn was the daughter of the late Robert T. and Vluarie Taylor and was also preceded in death by her loving husband, Clifford Foster, son Donald Foster and son-in-law Ronnie Crawford.
She is survived by her daughters, Doris Meadows and husband Dean, Mary Crawford, Donna Pressley and husband Edward, and Deborah Beck; grandchildren, Jeffrey Meadows (Meghan), Jennifer Polston (Michael), David Meadows, Rhonda Crawford, Crystal Surrett, Ronald Crawford, Jr. (Lisa), Rebecca Cooper, Kimberly Ruppe (Jonathan), and Christopher and Brandon Beck. She also has 18 great-grandchildren with another due in March.
Mom loved spring and gardening and it’s exciting to know that she will have an amazing spring this year!
She didn’t have a lot of material things in life but she always sacrificed to provide the best she could. I think her greatest legacy will be how she loved her family unconditionally.
She didn’t have a great education or, by the world’s standards, wouldn’t be considered very sophisticated but she was very generous and loving. By God’s grace we hope to see her again.
A funeral service will be at 12:00 noon Friday, February 11, in the chapel of the Western Carolina State Veterans Cemetery in Black Mountain after which she will be laid to rest with her husband, Clifford. The cemetery requires face masks in the chapel.
The family would like to thank all caregivers at Solace as well as all the many family and friends who have been praying for her.
Flowers and memorials may be sent to Groce Funeral Home on Patton Avenue, and in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Presbyterian Home for Children, 80 Lake Eden Road. Black Mountain, NC 28711.
