Charles M. Foster

May 29, 1933 — March 25, 2024

Washington C.H.

Charles M. Foster, 90, of Washington C.H., passed away on Monday evening, March 25, 2024, at his home surrounded by his wife, Mary and family. He was born on Monday, May 29, 1933, in Frankfort, a son of the late Frank S. and Elizabeth I. Jenkins Foster. On July 3, 1956, Charlie married the former Mary Ellen Higginbotham.

He is survived by his wife of sixty-seven years, Mary Ellen Foster, his two brothers: Frank L. Foster of Florisant, CO and Ernest Foster of Frankfort and several nieces and nephews. Charlie was preceded in death by his four sisters: Viola Cast, Cleo Mason, Marie Althouse and Rosalie Borrell.

Charles was a 1953 graduate of Frankfort High School. He was retired and had worked at the Roco Paper Company, Brown and Brockmeir, Cudahay Cheese and the Colonial Stair Case Company. All four of them closed and when he started a new job, Charlie would always joke and say, "you better be nice to me or I will close you". This was a comment he would make all in good fun. Charlie will be missed by all those he loved.

A funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 29, 2024 in the EBRIGHT FUNERAL HOME, Frankfort with Chaplain Aaron Hines officiating. Following the service, he will be laid to rest in Greenlawn Cemetery, Frankfort.
