Catherine Lynn “Cathy” Foster, 73, went to be with the Lord on December 10th, 2020. Cathy was born and raised in Newport, Rhode Island and spent the last 38 years in Poquoson, Virginia with her husband, David. Before retiring from Norfolk Wholesale Floral, she was previously employed at Freeman’s Florist in Poquoson, and prior to her work in the floral business, she was a real estate agent along the East Coast; serving in Virginia, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
Cathy was of Episcopalian faith since birth and she was an active member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Hampton, Virginia. As an avid lover of all animals, she supported her local humane society.
Cathy is reunited in Heaven with her mother, Catherine Florence Johansson, and father, Michael Robert Kurbaba.
Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband of 43 years, David Lin Foster; children, Gidget Lee Vickers, Christopher Leigh deMelo, and Catherine Lynn Matos; eleven grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and numerous life-long friends.
