Marlene G. Foster

November 19, 1940 — May 25, 2021

Marlene Gilstrap Foster, 80, of Easley, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2021 at her home.

Born in Liberty, she was the daughter of the late J. B. "Jake" and Lois Melton Gilstrap. She was a 1958 graduate of Liberty High School. Marlene retired from Holmesview Center of Greenville after 18 years of service and was a member of Easley First Baptist Church.

Marlene was a dedicated loving mother and grandmother. Her family was her world and with her humble, gentle manner she always put the needs of others ahead of her own. In her difficult days her family was by her side to take care of her. She will forever live in our hearts and will be greatly missed.

Surviving are her two children, Joey Foster (Tammy), of Greenville; and Shannon Ballew (Alan), of Easley; her two grandchildren, Adam and Addison Ballew; her three sisters, Carol Littleton, Lynn Niver and Sharon Winstead; and her brother, Johnny Gilstrap.
