HOMER B. FOSTER          

Homer B. [ertholda] Foster was born Dec. 7, 1894, near New Market, Iowa, the son of Thomas and Elvina (Hilbert) Foster.

He entered the Clarinda Municipal hospital Monday, Dec. 7 on his 93rd birthday, and passed away Monday morning, Dec. 14, 1987.

On Feb. 19, 1919 he was married to [Mary] Leota (Bales) Foster, who survives. They have lived in Taylor and Page counties, where, for many years, [they] were engaged in farming.

They retired from their farm home east of Braddyville, Ia, Nov. 22, 1968, moving into their hew home, which they built, at 308 S. 13th in Clarinda, where they still reside. In latter years, Homer was engaged in carpentry work.

Homer is survived by his wife Leota of the home; one sister, Mary (Foster) Zerbal of Mason City, Ia; three brothers-in-law and wives, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.

He was a good husband who loved his home. Their door is always open to young and old alike.

"Uncle Homer," as he was lovingly called by his nieces and nephews, was a kind, loving and "fun” uncle, always ready with a bit of wisdom and advice for each one.

The whole family respected his comments and advice he gave them from years of experience. Homer kept young at heart, respected by neighbors and friends as an honest, dependable, patient, hardworking man who would go out of his way to help someone in need. These words could be a fitting tribute to Homer by his many friends:

"You're just the kind of friend that's nice to have nearby, friendly when we need a friend, but never time to pry. We hope our hands will always clasp the friendship tried and true and we will try our best to be a neighbor just like you."

His philosophy of life could be summed up in these words:

"To be honest, to be kind, to earn a little, and to spend less, to make upon the whole, a family happier for his presence, and to keep his friends."

Burial was in Clarinda Cemetery.
