It is with much sadness to share the passing of our beloved mother, Linda Lou Foster (Goodell), age 68, who died unexpectedly at her residence on Monday, August 21, 2023. She was born April 8,1955 in Morrisville, the daughter of Ransom Goodell, Jr and Hilda M. Sheltra (Goodell) Boardman. She married Bruce Foster on January 25, 1974, raised two children, later separating, but remaining lifelong friends.

Linda lived in the Morrisville area most of her life.  She was employed at Topnotch, Golden Eagle Resort and Turtle Fur.

Linda loved to visit with friends at the local VFW, crocheting, embroidering, playing cards, solving puzzles, shopping, and always loved to find a good lawn sale. Most of all she loved spending time with her children; Charlotte and Matt, grandchildren; Taylor and Maryah Putvain and the latest addition Conner Foster. Linda’s life was full of laughter and defined by three words: faith, family and friends.
