Carolyn Cone Foster, of Liberty Township, Ohio, formerly of Phoenix, Md., passed away suddenly on June 21, 2013.

Carolyn was born and raised in Georgia. She graduated from Valdosta State College and later earned a master’s degree from The University of Maryland in Elementary Education. She was an elementary school teacher in both Maryland and Ohio for 30 years. She loved teaching children and developing young students. She also taught adult Sunday School classes and had a great love for the Bible. She was an active member of two church families, Lakota Hills Baptist Church in West Chester, Md., and Gunpowder Baptist Church in Freeland, Md. She was also a volunteer on numerous organizations and committees.

She was our Southern peach and never lost her Southern accent, no matter how far north she continued to move over the years. She loved Southern hospitality and always wore a big hat to church on Sunday morning. Being a military wife, she lived and traveled around the world but was always happiest to be at home with family and friends.
