Linda Gail Foster

March 22, 1942 — March 6, 2021

Linda Gail Connolly Foster, age 78, of Taylorsville went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, March 6, 2021 at Wilkes Health and Rehabilitation. Linda was born in Alexander County on March 22, 1942, the daughter of the late William Featherstone and Dolly Gregory Connolly. She was a lifelong member of First Baptist Church where she faithfully served the Lord as a nursery Sunday school teacher for over 45 years. Linda was the backbone of the family and loved taking care of them. She was an amazing and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend to all. Linda was a mother to everyone, and all the kids would call her “mom or grandma.” She was a great cook and would make every holiday extra special. Linda will hold a special place in our hearts forever. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother Donald Connolly.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of sixty-two years William “Buckey” Wayne Foster of the home; children Terry & Roxann Foster of Newton and Greg & Michele Foster of Taylorsville; grandchildren Adrian Foster (Summer), Matthew Foster (Jenn), Chelsie Ellis, and Logan Ellis; great-grandchildren Makayla, Dylan, Jordan, Kirra, Addee, Cooper, and Tripp; brothers Robert, John, and Charlie “Tom” Connolly all of Hiddenite; and sisters Lucille Bond & Kathleen Gwaltney both of Taylorsville; along with many nieces, nephews, and friends.
