Sherron Foster

Sherron Ann Rycroft Foster, 66, of Cottondale, Texas passed away on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at home. Memorial services will be held at 11:00 AM Saturday, November 23, 2013 at Cottondale Baptist Church. Sherri was born March 19, 1947 in Sweetwater, Texas to Sarah (Daniels) and James Rycroft. She graduated from Sweetwater Newman High School in 1965. Shortly after graduation she met Robert "Chip" Foster, who was an airman stationed at Avenger Field. It was love at first sight which lasted almost fifty years. Sherri was diagnosed with colon cancer in October 2012. She began "killing beasties" with a vengeance. Together she and Chip vowed to fight and never give up. Each doctor's visit was full of good news that the cancer was shrinking. In July 2013 Chip was unexpectedly diagnosed with terminal lung and brain cancer, turning the tide and Sherri having to become his strength and caregiver. She selflessly gave up her chemo treatment so that their time left together would be quality time. In seven short weeks, on September 4, 2013, Chip was gone. Although the family had supported Sherri's decision to stop her treatment, the cancer was not as forgiving and spread rapidly throughout her body. She soon left this earth to be united with him once again. She was a wonderful mother to Kirk and Brooke Foster and all of her four-legged babies that she rescued throughout her lifetime. She and Chip ran a family cabinet/carpentry business in Cottondale, together with their daughter Brooke and son-in-law Scott Hall. Her last four years were filled with extra sunshine and happiness by the gift of a beautiful grandson, Mason. She was his "TuTu" and he was her "Miracle Child." She also treasured her grandson Coleman. Sherri is survived by her daughter Brooke Hall and husband Scott of Cottondale; grandson Mason Hall of Cottondale; grandson Coleman Foster and his mother Leigh Angela Foster of Kansas; her "little sis" Joyce Cole and husband Marvin; niece Melissa Cole and daughter Taylan; nephew Phillip Cole, wife Casey and son Cannon; special cousins Sandra and Sherman Cox, Leonard and Frankie Womack, and the California bunch. There is now a wonderful reunion in Heaven with the love of her life Chip; her parents; son Kirk Foster; and cousin Vickie Lacey. She will also be joined at the Rainbow Bridge by the countless "critters" that she loved. Donations may be made in her honor to the Hall family, P. O. Box 395, Boyd, Texas 76023.
