Donna M. Foster
Issue Date: July 5, 2018
Donna Mae (Blaser) Foster, 69, of Little Suamico, passed away Thursday, June 21, 2018 at her home surrounded by family.
Born Nov. 6, 1948 in Oconto Falls, to Alten and Gloria (Mortier) Blaser, she was raised on the Blaser Family farm and graduated from Oconto Falls High School in 1966.
She married Bill Foster on Aug. 19, 1993 and raised her family in the Abrams/ Little Suamico area, working at the Hi-Way Restaurant until it closed.
The couple owned and operated Foster's Organic Acres, where they raised crops, beef, pork and poultry. She loved gardening and canning, was a good cook and baker and will be remembered for her jams, jellies, pies, soups and pancakes.
She loved spending time with her grandchildren, puzzles and taking care of others. Her strength and will were an inspiration to all who knew her. In her battle with cancer, she never looked for sympathy or special treatment and when asked how she was doing, she always said, fine.
She is survived by her husband, Bill Foster; her mother, Gloria Blaser; two daughters, Kelly (Matt Marquardt) McLeod and Terri (Paul) Virtues; four sons, Todd (Ida Baumgartner) Foster, Chad (Lisa) Krejcarek, Doug (Correna) Krejcarek and BJ (Erin) Foster; three sisters, Virgie (Jim) Damp, Jeanne (Jim) Markiewicz and Sandy (Jim) Rieth; two brothers, Wayne (Josie) Blaser and Roger (Karen) Blaser; a sister-in-law, Gerrie Foster; the father of her three children, Dennis Krejcarek; 15 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father, Alten Blaser and in-laws, Asa and Lucile Foster.
