EXLINE — Deloris (Terry) Foster, 94, a lifelong resident of Appanoose County, passed away on Friday, Feb. 1, 2013 at The Continental at St. Joseph’s in Centerville. She was the daughter of the late Irmel and Maggie (Baughman) Terry.

Deloris was born on Jan. 20, 1919. She graduated from Exline High School with the class of 1936, after having been a member of the women’s basketball team, for which she played every position.

After graduating, she became a teacher and taught at Zoar, Wilson and Numa schools. On April 27, 1939, she married Delbert Foster, in Lancaster, Mo. Deloris and Delbert farmed near Centerville, where Deloris tended to her garden. In 1963, she became the administrative assistant to Lonnie Edmund Johnson, superintendent of schools for Appanoose County. Deloris also worked several years at the Appanoose Country Court House in Centerville, from where she retired. Both before and after her retirement, Deloris was very active in the local community, her church and numerous clubs that she belonged to. She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her sons, Gerald and Dennis, making visits to each of them, in later years, at their homes in Arizona and Massachusetts, respectively. Some of Deloris’s interest included reading, cooking, sewing, gardening, traveling, current events and most important, visiting with her friends and family. She treasured the time she spent with her sisters, Esther and June. Deloris was a regular visitor to and proponent of the Exline community, especially the Exline Old Country Store. In 2006, she was named the grand champion of the annual Exline pie-baking contest, for her submission of a chocolate pie. Deloris loved life and lived life to the fullest.
