EVA FOSTER

Eva W. Foster, days short of 101 well-lived years, was called home by the Father Aug. 23, 2013 in Sumterville, Fla.

Born Sept. 5, 1912 in Mercer County, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Benton and Almedia Carter Watts and sister of Ina B. Watts Bradley. She attended White Cloud School, Harrodsburg High, Campbellsville College and the University of Kentucky, receiving her degrees from Eastern Kentucky State Teachers’ College, now Eastern Kentucky University. By vocation and with great passion, she was a public school educator. In her 40-year career prior to her 1973 retirement from the Mercer County School System, she served as principal of Shakertown Elementary School for 27 years, with the remaining years spent in various school assignments including her last in the science department of Mercer County High School. She received numerous professional awards during her career including membership on a state select commission for curriculum revision. She ended her career doing what she loved most, teaching science to junior high-aged students. Upon nomination by her former students, she was named a member of the Order of Kentucky Colonels, the state’s highest honor, presented at one of the Shakertown School reunions, an event she never missed. She loved seeing “her kids” and maintained contact with many former students for decades.

Upon retirement in 1973, she moved to Florida, where she continued to aid schools and students as a volunteer while pursuing new interests as well. She served as church organist for the Bushnell First United Methodist Church for nearly 20 years and was actively involved in United Methodist Women and continued to serve the church as its membership secretary until the time of her death. She became endearingly known as “Ecie” to those who knew her best in her Florida years.

Survivors include one daughter, Hannah M. Foster, of Bushnell, Fla.; one niece, Margie Eva (Richard) Wynn of Portsmouth, Ohio; two nephews, Loyd Bradley and Arthur (Scarlett) Bradley of Danville. She also leaves behind loved ones Evelyn and Gary Christy, Jim and Charlene Allen and Joyce McLeod of Bushnell, Fla. and Julie and Gerald Lister of Harrodsburg. Their families brought joy and laughter to her days.

She was competently and compassionately cared for by her much-loved physician of more than 40 years, Dr. Robert T. Meade of Leesburg, Fla. With his help, she lived a long life, but more importantly, many healthy years lived fully and richly.

A memorial service is today, Thursday, Aug. 29 at the Bushnell First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Dennis Redstone and Rev. Jeffery Thomas officiating. Active pallbearers are Bo Sharp, Tommy Bryan, Felix Adams, Jim Henderson, Terry Gideons, Myron Gulley, Preston Morgan and Rick Shirley.
