Born 13th of 14 children to hardworking Polish Immigrant homesteaders Stephan and Victoria Trojanowski, Florence spent her childhood on the family farm north of Winnipeg, Manitoba. In the 1950s she went to Toronto where she met her husband Bernard (Bert) Foster. She and Bert moved to the US in the 1960s; first to California then moving north to Washington State in the Puget Sound area. They gradually moved east arriving in Chewelah in the early 1990s. An avid gardener, Florence also enjoyed photography, painting, poetry, bowling and of course her pets. She and Bert loved their family of dogs & cats, often having several at a time. Florence was predeceased by her husband Bert, her parents and all her brothers and sisters. She was indeed the last of her generation. She leaves behind her special friend John Ross and numerous nieces and nephews and their families in Canada and the US.
She often said she had a good life–that God had taken care of her. It was fitting that she died while a Chaplain was saying prayers with her.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday May 29, 2016 at 7 p.m. in the Children’s Pavilion in the park in Chewelah, Washington. Come join us for dessert.
