Carol Foster

Carol Foster, our beloved Mom, passed away on December 12, 2021.

FOSTER—Carol Foster, our beloved Mom, passed away in her sleep early morning on Dec. 12, 2021. She is survived by her four children: Gregg, Susan, Lindy and Lauri, as well as grandchildren Cycle, Solon and Evan; and great-grandchildren Allison, Kaley, AJ, Tyler and Jace. 

Carol was an inspiration to us all, completing her education at night while having four kids at home in order to become a librarian. She passed her love of books on to everyone, later opening a well-loved bookstore in Florence, Books ‘n’ Bears.  

Meanwhile, she was also a dedicated dog trainer who helped found the Oregon Coast Humane Society in Florence, Ore. For many years, she was a Red Cross volunteer who traveled around the US helping disaster victims. She was a longtime member of the FloTones singing group, and also sang in the Florence Community Chorus. 

For us kids, she was who we wanted to grow up to be. 

She will be missed by her family and her community. A memorial will be planned for after the holidays. 

In lieu of flowers, please donate to Oregon Coast Humane Society or the American Red Cross. Burns's Riverside Chapel Florence Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
