Renette Alcie Foster, age 73, of Blairsville, Georgia, passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, June 20, 2022. Renette was born on October, 25, 1948 as the eleventh child of Lewis Parker and Willie Marie Foster.
Renette was a kind, loving, and caring woman. She loved to go fishing on the banks of Lake Nottely, where she caught countless fish that she would clean, skin, and fry up for her family to enjoy every Fourth of July. When she wasn’t casting her line, she was sitting at her table working on a complex yet stunning puzzle, or she was lounging in her chair watching one of her many favorite Westerns. Renette appreciated the little things in life, and her life is a testament to the beauty of simplicity.
Renette is preceded in death by her parents, Lewis Parker and Willie Marie Galloway Foster; her sisters, Carmon, Evelyn, and Clella Foster; her brother, Kermit Foster; her brother, Kenneth (Nita Mae) Foster; her sister, Regina (C.J.) Patterson; her brother, Keith (Clara) Foster; her sister-in-law, Betty Foster; and her sister, Reba Sosebee. Surviving her are her brothers, Keiter Foster and Kendell (Frances) Foster; sister-in-law, Caroline Foster; brother-in-law, Marcus Sosebee. Many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends also survive.
Renette was a dedicated member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where she faithfully attended services, proclaimed salvation, and handed out chewing gum from the back pew.
