Obituary

Florence Babor Foster, 96, of Chesterfield, VA, beloved wife of the late John Foster, left us on Thursday April 11, 2019 at home, surrounded by her family. Florence is survived by her two sons; Michael Cutler and Anthony Cutler, and Michael’s wife, Gail, all of Connecticut. Florence was born in New York, NY on May 31, 1922, the daughter of the late Frank and Minnie Babor. She spent her childhood on her grandparent’s farm in the Maromas section of Middletown, CT. Florence was a veteran of the Navy, joining in 1944. She proudly spent 30 years as a psychiatric nurse at the Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown. The highlight of her career was as a key participant in the development and running of the first Crisis Hotline in the state of Connecticut. Florence was involved in the Masonic Eastern Star in Connecticut, rising to it’s Grand Line. She was introduced to the Richmond Commandery through her husband John’s participation. She actively supported their social events and called the members “her boys.” In acknowledgment she was recognized as a “Sweetheart of the Grand Commander.” Florence also enjoyed the fellowship of the Bellwood’s Officers Wives Club and her church friends at St. Augustine’s. Florence’s most endearing quality was her incredible ability to make friends with literally everyone she met. She could light up a room with her optimistic approach to life and her beloved “dammit” dolls. She will be missed by all of us that were privileged to know her. At her request, there will be a celebration of Florence’s life planned for a future date in Virginia.
