Norma G. Foster

WATERVILLE - Norma G. Foster, of Waterville, formerly of Shawmut, passed away on Saturday, May 13, 2017. She was born in Fredericton NB, Canada on Nov. 11, 1929. Norma was the daughter of Maurice and Dorothy (Golding) Phillips.
She graduated from Fredericton Junction High School, moved to Maine in 1950, and later attended Accounting classes at the University of Maine in Augusta. She was employed as Office Manager for Ace Tire Company in Waterville for 32 years before retiring in 1993.
A member of the Shawmut Chapel and its Board of Deacons, she served as Treasurer and Clerk (20 years), taught Sunday School (10 years), sang alto in the church choir and served (at various times) as President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Willing Workers women's auxiliary.
Norma enjoyed walking at Colby, aerobics and golfing. She was a member of Lakeview Golf Club in Burnham, and much to her surprise won a couple of tournaments! Since May 2008, she was a resident of Lake-wood Continuing Care Center in Waterville. The family is grateful that she received such outstanding care from Dr. Knausenberger, the nurses and all of the staff on Moonlight Bay.
She was predeceased by her husband of 25 years, William F. (Joe) Foster; brother Byron Phillips; sister Edrie M. and her husband Kingsley J. Kingston, of Fort Fairfield; and sister-in-law Miriam Phillips, of Tracy, NB. Willis C. Libby of Benton, to whom she was married for 24 years, also predeceased her.
