Katheryn Louise Beavers Foster

Services were held February 15 at Covenant Presbyterian Church for Katheryn Louise Beavers Foster. Mrs. Foster, 94, passed away peacefully February 11, at Baptist Hospital surrounded by her family.

Mrs. Foster was born in Dalton, Ga. February 14, 1924, the daughter of the late Eugene and Willie May Beavers.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Warren Vernon Foster Sr., and her two brothers, Robert (Jerry) and Harold (Peggy). A resident of Jackson for 50 years, she is survived by her children: Jan Taylor (Zach) and Katheryn Kolodny (Alan) of Jackson and Warren Foster (Irina) of Cordova, Tenn., as well as her four beloved grandchildren: Dr. Stephen (Stephanie) Foster of Ridgefield, Wash., Zachary Taylor IV of New York City, Dr. Michael (Carlena) Foster of Clinton, and Dr. Jenny Katheryn Taylor of Albuquerque, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

Called Mimi by her grandchildren, she will be remembered for her sense of humor, her love of family, her fabulous cooking, and her fondness for “antiquing”. When her children were small, she taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, was a Girl Scout leader, and was one of the most loyal volunteers at their schools. After her husband’s stroke, she drove the two of them around the state to make calls, having been a key part of the business, and continued that work well into her 80s. She was a long-time member of Covenant Presbyterian Church and Chapter “F” of P.E.O. The family wishes to thank the staff of Baptist Hospital and Hospice Ministries for the tender care they provided Mimi in her final days.

Memorials may be made to Covenant Presbyterian Church, 4000 Ridgewood Rd., Jackson, Miss., 39211; or the Pastors Fund, New Beginnings Community Church, 57 Morgantown Rd., Natchez, Miss., 39210.
