Devora “Dee” Foster

Published 7:38 am Wednesday, January 23, 2013


On Wednesday morning, Jan. 16, 2013, Devora “Dee” Foster had a visit from a Heavenly Angel that was sent to Lakeview Hospital to collect the perfect rose for the heavenly garden.

She answered the call, knowing that there would be sad hearts, some lonely, others shocked, but her total aim in life was to please God, so off she went to be with the other saints. She was loved by many and was a refuge for children who needed a mother, grandmother, aunt or whatever a person needed. Mondy Road has lost a precious gem and the community has lost a No. 1 citizen in the passing of Dee.

She was the mother of three, the late Reginald A. Foster, Yolanda (Donald) Bradham and Zella (Rev. Thadeus) Daggs; seven grandchildren, Justin Foster, Jasmine Hardge, Jordon Hardge and Jessica Hardge, all of Va., Jakyra D. Daggs, Michael and Myisha Bradham of Texas; three great-grandchildren, William Hardge, Jhyren Pigott and Isaac Foy; two brothers, William T. (Ella) Foster Jr. and Andrew (Frenchie) Foster; a first cousin, Freddie Frazier, who is called the baby-girl of the family; one aunt, Quida Fortenberry; and a host of nieces, nephew, cousins and friends.

Visitation will be held Friday, Jan. 25, at Cook-Richmond Funeral Home from 2-4 p.m. Visitation will continue from 6-8 p.m. at Mt. Zion Baptist Church on Jones Creek Road in Varnado, with the funeral to be held on Saturday at 11 a.m., with Rev. A.S. Nelson officiating. Interment will follow at Robinson Cemetery.
