We lost an Angel today…. Heaven got one of the BEST! Doris was born on Thursday April 4, 1929 to the late Russell and Rose (Matthews) Foster and lived in the New Franklin area most of her life. She graduated from Manchester High School in 1947. Doris was a homemaker extraordinaire. She loved to cook and bake for family, friends and neighbors. Doris had many talents. She taught tailoring for many years and was an incredible artist, selling many of her works of art (paintings) at Barberton Citizens Hospital, donating her proceeds to her faith-promise at church. Doris started the Ability Belles craft club, which carried on for many, many years. She was a faithful member of Norton Grace Church and earlier at Community Church of Portage Lakes where she taught Sunday school, Encouragement Class, the Teens, was a member of the choir and was an amazing soloist.
In addition to her parents, Doris was preceded in death by her late husband of 63 years, Rick; brother, Kenneth Foster; sister, Maxine Miracle; granddaughter, Haley Marie Korom; and many other family and friends.
