Edith Mae Robbins Foster was born January 18, 1922 in Pelican, Louisiana and went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 28, 2021 at the age 99 years. She was affectionately known to her family as Mimi.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard David Foster; one son, Stephen Wayne Adams; a sister, Virginia Robbins Foster; and a brother Harvey Robbins.
Mimi is survived by two grandchildren, Lori Ann Barney of Linden, Texas, and Tye Stephen Adams and wife, Amanda J. Adams of Coushatta, Louisiana; three great-grandchildren, Brailee Caroline Vaughan, Tylee Ireland Adams and Brodee Foster Adams of Coushatta, Louisiana and a daughter-in-law, Judy E. Adams of Coushatta, Louisiana; and by many friends.
It was said that Mimi was the Mayor of Crichton because she had lived there the longest.
Mimi saw many changes during her lifetime. She grew up in a difficult era but she was a hard worker and she survived. Cooking was her specialty and the family always loved to sit down to one of her meals, especially her chicken and dressing. During pecan season, if you drove by her house, chances are you would see her out in the yard picking up pecans. She did this until she became paralyzed in 2013. Her flowers and yard were always tended and well cared for.
She taught the family many Christian values, morals and principles to live by which have been invaluable through the years.
Mimi was a long-time member of the Wesley Chapel Methodist Church where she had a loving church family that she enjoyed being with.
Private graveside services will be held at Mt. Zion Cemetery with Reverend John Kavanaugh officiating. Visitation will be held from 6 P.M. until 8 P.M. Sunday, January 31, 2021 at Rockett-Nettles Funeral Home.
