  • thinking of you…..had Jean in my water class of MAPT….she was a lot of fun…also I have some of her craft items.

  • We both had the same hobby and saw her at a lot of shows. Thinking of you, she will be missed.

  • I have many good memories of Jean. We had a wonderful teaching team at GW. Some of our best times were sewing classes and that crazy week-end shopping in Cleveland. Dick and I are thinking of you.

  • I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Foster. May warm memories comfort her family in your loss. She was an great educator. I feel blessed to have had her for class in the 4th grade.
