Elizabeth Foster Obituary

   Marguerite Elizabeth Sloan Williams Foster died on October 2, 2023.         

   Elizabeth, as she was so lovingly known as, was preceded by two husbands Lester Newton Williams, who passed away on September 3, 1979, and her second husband John Henry Foster, who passed away on August 5, 1998.  She was also preceded by her father Offie Coit Sloan, her mother Margaret Janie (Walter) Sloan, brothers Joe Sloan and Lawrence Sloan, a sister Lucile Shaver, and a best friend Mark Wallace.

   She is survived by six children Arena Hayes (Tommy) of Pinnacle, NC, Harry Williams of Lexington, NC, Ruth Seaman (Steve) of Cleveland, NC, Terrianna West of Lakeland, FL, Mary Williams of Greer, SC, David “Eli” Williams of Mocksville, NC, a brother Howard Sloan (Christine) of Statesville, NC, 14 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great-grandchildren, close friends Pat Rennix and Preacher Dale Wallace, and a large church family that she loved dearly.

   Elizabeth loved her God, Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, being around other people, her church, and flowers.  She worked for the Davie County School System and she drove a bus for 20 years, which was a childhood dream. Later, she worked at the Walmart Garden Center for nine years and four months looking after the plants and seeing all her friends at the cash register.  She just loved people.  So don’t weep for her, she is in a better place now.

    On Saturday, October 7, a visitation, and funeral service will be held at Damascus Baptist Church with visitation beginning at 1:00 pm and the service beginning at 2:00 pm.  Pastor Dale Wallace will officiate the service and the honored pallbearers will be Chris Seaman, Bradley Johnson, Charles Johnson, Eddie Sloan, David Marler, Mark Bailey, and Victor Ramirez.
